I only pinned this because this was 1970's David Bowie when he was making his classic hits. Wierd, but this is how he looked in most of his concerts, even in public when he wasn't working--"Ground control to Major Tom"....10--9--8---7---6---5---4---3---2---1(countdown)
Life On Mars
Astronomer Royal: Life on Mars would change everything we know
Life on Mars would change everything we know. More than 100 years ago, a French foundation offered the grand prize of 100,000 francs to anyone who could prove the existence of extraterrestrial life. But there was an important proviso. Finding life on Mars didn’t count: that was deemed to be far too easy. Indeed, in the 19th century an eccentric American astronomer, Percival Lowell, had claimed to see “canals” on Mars, indicative of large-scale irrigation by an advanced civilisation.
