布莱恩·梅将获得2019年阿瑟斯坦·斯皮赫斯奖

布莱恩·梅

梅博士为提高公众对空间科学的认识和欣赏所做的贡献在这个星球上确实是独一无二的。作为摇滚乐队皇后乐队的首席吉他手而闻名于世,他还拥有天体物理学博士学位,2007年他被伦敦帝国理工学院授予博士学位,以表彰他对黄道光的研究。作为一名重返校园完成博士学业的摇滚明星,他以一种其他人无法企及的方式向公众传达了科学很酷的信息。博士。梅曾与美国国家航空和宇宙航行局(NASA)合作开展了“新地平线”号(New Horizons)探测冥王星和柯伊伯带(Kuiper Belt)的任务,欧洲航天局(European Space Agency)的“罗塞塔”(Rosetta)彗星任务,以及日本航空宇宙航行局(Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency)的“隼鸟2”(Hayabusa2)小行星任务。

博士。在2015年与冥王星相遇期间和之后,梅是新视野号的热心推动者。他不仅参加了无数的采访和公开露面,还利用了自己拥有近100万粉丝的推特账号的力量。他的工作产生和宣传所有这些任务的立体图像,让公众看到我们用新的眼睛探索的世界。

对于新视野号2019年与柯伊伯带天体Ultima Thule的相遇,Dr。梅将自己的影响力提升到了一个新的非凡水平:他创作并录制了一首新歌《新地平线》(new Horizons)来庆祝这次任务。《波西米亚狂想曲》(Bohemian Rhapsody)是一部非常成功的电影,上映几个月后,梅就参与了《天涯海角》(Ultima Thule)的拍摄,极大地提高了任务的知名度。甚至《吉他世界》网站的读者也知道,天涯海角为我们提供了,用梅博士的话来说,“关于太阳系如何诞生的宝贵线索。”

《新地平线》的官方视频在YouTube上被观看了170万次,还有无数人在电视和网络广播上听到了这首歌。大家都听过世界上唯一的天体物理学家/摇滚歌星。

在无尽的天空中有无限的奇迹

我们可能永远,永远也达不到他们

这就是为什么我们要尝试!

凭借他的摇滚明星魅力,布莱恩·梅不仅向世界展示了我们探索的东西,还展示了为什么,他真的配得上2019年阿瑟斯坦·斯皮尔豪斯奖。

我对天文学的热爱始于上世纪50年代初,当时我还是个孩子,我请求允许我熬夜看帕特里克•摩尔爵士(Sir Patrick Moore)为BBC电视台(BBC)制作的《夜空》(Sky at Night)系列节目。1970年左右,我开始在伦敦帝国理工学院攻读博士学位,但没有完成博士学位就离开了,为了追求我的爱好——摇滚音乐,我和皇后乐队在世界各地表演和巡演了30多年。是帕特里克·摩尔鼓励我继续写我的博士论文《黄道带尘埃云的径向速度调查》,我在2007年完成了这篇论文。

这为我打开了回到天文学和天体物理学世界的大门。不久之后,我与帕特里克先生和克里斯·林托特博士开始了我的第一次作者合作:我们写并出版了通俗科学书籍《砰!宇宙的完整历史。

在我所有的环球旅行中,我从未远离过天文学。最近,我又通过另一项毕生爱好——立体摄影,为几次太空任务做出了贡献。

2015年,我应首席研究员(PI)艾伦·斯特恩(Alan Stern)的邀请,以科学团队合作者的身份加入了他的NASA新视野团队,我致力于制作冥王星的第一张立体图像。4年10亿英里之后,艾伦邀请我回来写一首歌,为新视野号与柯伊伯带天体Ultima Thule的亲密接触伴奏。我的“新视野”单曲在2019年元旦发布,并在NASA电视台首播,与这次飞越时间相吻合。

2015年,我还与皮·马特·泰勒(PI Matt Taylor)在欧洲航天局(European Space Agency)的罗塞塔(Rosetta)任务中合作,制作了67P/丘留莫夫-格拉西缅科(Churyumov-Gerasimenko)彗星的立体图像。今年,我与日本航空航天局的Hayabusa2团队合作,创造了琉球小行星的立体图像,这是第一个近距离成像的c型(碳质)小行星。这些遥远的科学太空飞行器发回地球的数据制成的许多立体声音响是在我的合作者克劳迪娅·曼佐尼(Claudia Manzoni)的帮助下制成的,我要感谢她,感谢她的专业和宝贵的工作。

我注意到,这个奖项是为了表彰公众对空间科学的欣赏和认识;如果通过与那些关注我的活动的人分享我的文字、3d图像和音乐的经验,我已经做了一些事情来帮助公众感受太空探索和相关科学的兴奋,我就心满意足了。但获得这个奖项是一个奇妙的和意想不到的奖金!

我要感谢阿古。

Brian May

Dr. May's contributions to public awareness and appreciation of the space sciences are literally unique on the planet. World famous as the lead guitarist for the rock band Queen, he also holds a Ph.D. in astrophysics, which he was awarded in 2007 by Imperial College London for his studies of the zodiacal light. Just by being a rock star who went back to complete his doctoral studies, he conveyed to the public in a way that no one else could that science is cool. Dr. May has used his celebrity as a science collaborator on NASA's New Horizons mission to Pluto and the Kuiper Belt, the European Space Agency's Rosetta comet mission, and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's Hayabusa2 asteroid mission.

Dr. May was an avid promoter of New Horizons during and after its 2015 Pluto encounter. He not only participated in numerous interviews and public appearances but harnessed the power of his Twitter account, which has almost 1 million followers. His work generating and publicizing stereo images from all these missions lets the public see the worlds we have explored with new eyes.

For New Horizons' 2019 encounter with the Kuiper Belt object Ultima Thule, Dr. May raised his impact to a new and extraordinary level: He wrote and recorded a new song, "New Horizons," to celebrate the mission. Coming as it did just a couple of months after the release of the enormously successful film about Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody, May's involvement in the Ultima Thule encounter was an incredible boost to the mission's visibility. Even readers of Guitar World's website learned that Ultima Thule was giving us, in Dr. May's words, "precious clues about how our solar system was born."

The official video for "New Horizons" has been viewed 1.7 million times on YouTube, and countless more have heard the song on TV and webcasts. All have heard the world's only astrophysicist/rock star singer.

Limitless wonders in a never-ending sky

We may never, never reach them

That's why we have to try!

By using his rock star charisma to the show the world not just what we explore, but why, Brian May is truly worthy of the 2019 Athelstan Spilhaus Award.

My love of astronomy began when, as a boy in the early 1950s, I begged to be allowed to stay up late to watch Sir Patrick Moore present BBC TV's Sky at Night series. Around 1970, I began my Ph.D. studies at Imperial College London but left without completing my Ph.D., for a break to pursue my hobby of rock musica break which turned into more than 30 years performing and touring the world with my band, Queen. It was Patrick Moore who encouraged me to resume work on my Ph.D. thesis, "A Survey of Radial Velocities in the Zodiacal Dust Cloud," which I completed in in 2007.

This opened the doors for me to return to the world of astronomy and astrophysics. Soon afterward, I entered into my first collaboration in authorship, along with Sir Patrick and Dr. Chris Lintott: We wrote and published the popular science book Bang! The Complete History of the Universe.

In all my travels around the world, I have never been far away from astronomy, and recently, I have been able to contribute to several space missions through another lifelong passion, stereophotography.

In 2015 I was invited by principal investigator (PI) Alan Stern to join his NASA New Horizons team as a science team collaborator, and I worked on creating the very first stereo images of Pluto. Four years and a billion miles later, Alan invited me back to write a song to accompany New Horizons' close encounter with the Kuiper Belt object Ultima Thule. My "New Horizons" single was released on New Year's Day 2019 and premiered on NASA TV, to coincide with the flyby.

In 2015 I also worked with PI Matt Taylor on the European Space Agency's Rosetta mission, creating stereo images of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. This year, in collaboration with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's Hayabusa2 team I created stereo images of asteroid Ryugu, the first C-type (carbonaceous) asteroid to be imaged at close quarters. Many of the stereos created from data sent back to Earth by these remote scientific space vehicles have been made with the help of my own collaborator, Claudia Manzoni, and I would like to acknowledge her and thank her for her expert and invaluable work.

I note that this award is for public appreciation and awareness of the space sciences; if, by sharing my experiences in words, 3-D images, and music with those who follow my activities, I have done something to help bring to the public the excitement of space exploration and the associated science, I am content. But receiving this award is a wonderful and unexpected bonus!

My grateful thanks to AGU.
