Queens in Space Brian May took a sabbatical from school about 30 years ago to play a little guitar.

Thirty (30)+ albums, more than 60 awards, and 6 inductions into halls of fame later, Mr. May has finished his thesis for his PhD.

The thesis has been published in a book called ‘A Survey of Radial Velocities in the Zodiacal Dust Cloud‘.

Zodiacal Dust Cloud is the scattered debris that floats around the sun reflecting sunlight which causes a light effect here on earth. Dr. May’s thesis focuses on data collected by the Fabry-Perot Spectrometer between 1971 and 1972.
