Is This Song on RB or GH yet?

"Children of the Sun" by Billy Thorpe (the official site is pretty slick)
To get the full effect you want to hear this song in stereo.
Here is the song put to a tribute to the Hubble Space Telescope. It has a long intro, insturment solos and rock vocals. Sounds about right.

You've redeemed yourself. The song rocks and should be in Rock Band.

screw the song, take a look at the science!

I really liked the bit where there was a size comparison of the planets to eachother and our sun (which, granted, has been done a lot) but then also displayed the enormity of some of the stars.

Of course Betelgeuse (the star, not the movie)is the only megastar I know how to find in the night sky. It is straight up from Orion's belt, his shoulder, if you will.

Too bad they didn't go one step further with YM Canis Majoris, whose radius is nearly twice that of the two Cepheti stars that top the video's lineup
