moonageA word invented by David Bowie in 1971; for the song Moonage Daydream, from the concept album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (it's not as daft as it sounds - in fact, it's amazing! I recommend you read the explanation and listen to it in order.)

Is there life on Mars???!!!added by anonymous
