Sir, I note with some concern that scientists, including rock band Queen’s guitarist Brian May PhD, are concerned that we risk annihilation by a bohemian asteroid (“Scientists warn of asteroid threat to humanity’s future”, December 4). One may well ask:

Is this the real thing, or just a fantasy Hit by an asteroid — the end of humanity?

The evidence is apparently there for all to see:

Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see . . . 

Another rock band from a distant timezone, REM, had a more philosophical approach:

It’s the end of the world as we know it . . . And I feel fine.

Dr May might like to consider this alternative view.
