"Today Brian May, musician, member of the rock band QUEEN, writer, and scientist-astrophysicist, celebrates his birthday. It is noteworthy that Mr. May wrote a book Bang!-The Complete History of the Universe, and received a PhD degree in astrophysics!
When the Foundation NOOSFERA launched our project "Discovery within a week", we addressed Brian May with a request to support our educational astronomical program. Mr. May did agree and sent a letter of greetings for young pioneers. Thanks to his touch of magic, London schoolchildren discovered 4 variable stars."
