In 1972, soon after David Bowie releases his album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, we learn it was prophetic: that the apocalypse hinted at in the opening song "Five Years" is really going to happen. We start preparing for it, looking for ways to prevent it; and we start analyzing more of Bowie's songs to find, we hope, hints for how to save the world.
