BBC NEWS

May and fellow space enthusiast and 10cc frontman Graham Gouldman are releasing a new song, Floating in Heaven, to celebrate the arrival of the James Webb images.

We’ve been hearing from scientists and space enthusiasts about why these images are so important and why we should be excited about them. Among them is Brian May, the astrophysicist and Queen guitarist, who is also a long-time Nasa collaborator.

This is not the first time May has marked scientific discoveries with bran-new music. In 2019, he released New Horizons after Nasa announced its probe had reached the furthest object in our solar system ever visited by a spacecraft. In an interview at the time, May said the song was about “the indomitable spirit of man to explore the universe around him”.
