The stars look very different today: David Bowiestarman, rock star, man who fell to earth — will have his own constellation, a seven-star cluster that forms a lightning-bolt shape (akin to the one that adorns the face of Aladdin Sane) pointing, of course, in the direction of Mars. Bowie is being honored by Belgian radio station Studio Brussel and MIRA Public Observatory, DDB Brussels reports, and there's also an interactive website honoring the man who once asked NASA to shoot him off into space (they said no). Additionally, there's a mile-wide space rock that hangs out in the belt between Jupiter and Mars named 342843 Davidbowie.
