You Can Party in Space with David Bowie

April 12, 2019

David Bowie's song "Space Oddity" was released nearly half a decade ago.

Tonight it will be celebrated along with other space feats at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.

The museum will be hosting Space Oddity: Ground Control To Major Party -- an event dedicated to the celebration of April 12, 1961, when Yuri Gagarin became the first human in space, April 12, 1981 when the first Space Shuttle was launched and 2019 marking the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

From 8:30 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. you can enjoy a planetarium laser light show and live taping of AirSpace podcast all to the tune of Bowie's hit.

A drag show will also be held in Bowie's honor.
