Today sees the 45th anniversary of David Bowie’s Space Oddity.

Today (July 11, 2014) sees the 45th anniversary of David Bowie’s Space Oddity. The song was timed to coincide with the Apollo moon landing but had to be re-released before it became a hit, later in the year in the UK.

Bowie’s first rise to fame was tied to one of the most significant moments in the history of human science and culture – and he hasn’t looked back!
