So, what’s the deal with Zaggy Moondust you ask? He wasn’t in Lunar Colony, like some Poptropicans were expecting, so who the heck is he supposed to be? Well, we here at Poptropica Secrets don’t want to leave anyone in the dark. Zaggy Moondust is a funny reference to a character called Ziggy Stardust who was the alter-ego of 1970′s glam-rock star David Bowie. 1970′s? Glam rock? What’s that got to do with a space station on the moon? David Bowie, whose costume is uncannily captured in the Zaggy Moondust membership gear, made an album called “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars” which had space-themed songs like “Starman”, “Lady Stardust”, “Star”, and the titular song “Ziggy Stardust”.
David Bowie also had a song called “Space Oddity” that includes a rocket countdown and blastoff. He really liked writing space-themed songs!
