Via Flickr: Inspired by David Bowie’s 1980 Floor Show.
The 1980 Floor Show (a pun on the song “1984” - 19-Eighty-Floor) was to be David Bowie’s last appearance as “Ziggy Stardust”. The show itself was a spectacular stage production that was filmed over 3 days in 1973, mostly at The Marquee Club, Soho, London for the American NBC TV late night show The Midnight Special.
A Blackstar is a transitional phase that is created when a collapsing star is close to reaching singularity, where the star’s influence becomes infinite and space-time itself ceases to exist within it. Although the star at this point has died, it has been transformed into something else altogether and its energy will continue to be released indefinitely.
