A terribly sad day on Earth, with one less very special person. A tragic loss for music, for the arts, for film, and for the curious with the departure of this amazingly talented man.

From our friends at Asteroid Day:

Rest in Peace, David Bowie. Did you know that he has an asteroid named after him? 342843 Davidbowie. Thanks to the European Space Agency for this additional information: On January 5, 2015, an asteroid was named after David Bowie: (342843) 2008 YN3 = Davidbowie.
