As we know about Roger working on a soundtrack, Brian too has done a new soundtrack to the new film "51 Degrees" have a look/listen to this trailer, the familiar rumbles of Brians Guitar. Also pause the trailer at the Credits at the end, "Music by Brian May" (It's not the Australian composer of the same name)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxlSkotTkiw&feature=youtu.be


http://www.51degreesmovie.com/the-film it's on the films website that Brian is the composer of the film's music.

Brian says:-
'I was inspired by the rushes, and honoured to be asked to contribute music for the film' (Dr. Brian May, Composer, 2014).

'This is a very different kind of disaster movie. No Bruce Willis here, to save life on Earth from extinction. This is a movie to change perspectives - and now that we realise the high probability of such a strike from space, it is a timely warning indeed' (Dr. Brian May, Composer, 2014).




Joyful the sound

If it is anything like the Furia album, it probably took as long to compose and record the soundtrack as it did to watch the film.

This film looks like it'll be fantastic, never mind Brian May doing the soundtrack !

Asteroids are a serious issue that most people don't have a clue about, and hopefully this film will change that.

He died in 1997, some of the British media thought it was our Brian at the time, I remember working all day thinking "the" Brian May had died.


Arse.

I did not know that.

I can remember listening to the "Mad Max" soundtrack when I was a kid, just trying to pick out "Our" Brian's Guitar work....lol..

I remember my first case of asteroids. Preparation H put out the fire.

It's not a film about asteroids, its a film about what you would do in your last moments. A conversation every right minded adult on the planet has had a million times. 1/10 for originality....

Hubble has looked billions of years into the past, due to modern technology we can detect an asteroid strike a long time in advance.. we are more at risk of an unexpected asteroid impact than we are of those anthology things people spoke about 15 years ago....

Not always.

And it's not a given that every one of them will burn up in the atmosphere.

Bob, If Earth did get hit & it does send us into another Ice age, how long do you think we would get, before we became extinct like the Dinosaurs?

There are far too many factors involved to give a straight answer. But it likely wouldn't take long before most of us froze to death. It's possible that a few of us may find a habitable spot on earth, even if we have to fight/kill others for the real estate.

Asteroids or not, even some conservative estimates say we've got less than a couple hundred years left in our existence. Anything from nuclear war to climate change to killing off the sharks (they're top of the ocean food chain, and if the oxygen-giving plants at the bottom of the ocean are eaten we're doomed) to running out of oil and becoming savages are all likely possibilities.

The fact that it may take a few mere centuries to obliterate ourselves in a technological age after billions of years of life evolving from microbes may be the saddest fact of all.

The dinosaurs likely went extinct for a much different reason than we will. It's entirely possible there was a supernova a few light years away that sent cosmic rays our way, depleting the earth's atmosphere to the point that ultraviolet rays from the sun got through and burned nearly everything that moved at the stake. If that didn't kill the dinosaurs, then it killed off their diet and they starved to death instead. And whoever we descended from managed to survive in the trees - all the more sad that we, ultimately more resilient than the dinosaurs, may actually last only a couple hundred thousand years while the dinosaurs lasted hundreds of millions.
