Queen guitarist Brian May to release a book of 3D images of asteroid Bennu


... ...
Queen guitarist and astrophysicist Brian May is about to release a book of 3D photographs of the near-Earth asteroid Bennu based on images gathered by NASA's OSIRIS-Rex spacecraft, which snagged samples from the space rock in October 2020.

Apart from playing guitar with one of the most famous rock bands in history, May also has a PhD in astronomy and is known for his keen interest in stereoscopic photography — photography that simulates the ability of human eyes to perceive space in three dimensions.

The 76-year-old rock legend cooperated on the book with OSIRIS-REx (short for "Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security-Regolith Explorer") principal investigator and planetary scientist Dante Lauretta.
... ...

Sample Image, below. Simply cross Your eyes until the boulder images 'merge'... the 3D image will 'pop-out' at you.
