      Not making any of this up.

      Brian May of Queen was working on a degree in astrophysics when Queen hit it big. So he put the astrophysics on hold while he had an amazing musical career.

      But eventually he went back to school and got his astrophysics Ph.D. So now he's Dr. Brian May, rock & roll astrophysicist.

      And while he was on his little musical diversion, he wrote what is, AFAIK, the only pop song ever to explore the emotional ramifications of Einstein's "traveling twin" problem:

      "The true strength of our nation comes not from the might of our arms or the scale of our wealth, but from the enduring power of our ideals." - Barack Obama
