Queen Beams




Mars crater resembles a 'happy face'
PARIS, April 12 (UPI) -- Photos taken by the European Space Agency's Mars Express craft show Mars has a crater that resembles a "smiley face."
The face in the 143-mile wide Crater Galle was first noticed in photos taken during NASA's Viking Orbiter 1 mission on March 11, and seen again in infrared color photos taken by the Mars Express.
Since successfully attaining orbit Tuesday, the orbiter has returned photos showing the crater's interior contains parallel gullies on its southern rim -- a possible sign of liquid water running -- and its interior has also been shaped by the action of wind, the BBC reported.
Once the orbiter has descended to its lower mapping orbit, the cameras will be able to pick out objects just under three feet across, ESA officials said.




Johann Gottfried Galle (June 9, 1812July 10, 1910) was a German astronomer at the Berlin Observatory who, with the assistance of student Heinrich Louis d'Arrest, was the first person to view the planet Neptune, and know what he was looking at (September 23, 1846). He used the calculations of Urbain Le Verrier to know where to look.

link to Brian May story ..

the main point .. is that because of the Brian May's name of 'may' and his band 'queen' .. he would be pertinent to the "may queen" theme ..

and here he appears in the context of "american idol" and "deception"

the song we will rock you is actually b side to we are the champions ...

I will have to think more about if and how this would fit .. but right away i am thinking ..

of america as a type of 'may queen' to be sacrificed ..

this connects with the idea of "we are the champions of the world" and "deception"
