    Why would an astronaut take protein pills? In a zero-gravity environment muscular atrophy is inevitable. With a lack of physical resistance to movement, the metabolism has no incentive to create new muscle mass. Protein consumed will not be used by the body. It will rot in the gut and, ultimately, be expelled. And here is the problem.

    Excess protein in the gut causes flatulence. And when I say “flatulence” I mean rancid egg farts. Rancid egg farts that kill your houseplants and give your pets nightmares. Rancid egg farts which turn your curtains brown. Rancid egg farts that make you break the window with your bare fists in a desperate bid to get fresh breathable oxygen. The kind of farts which are a recipe for disaster if you’re wearing a hermetically-sealed spacesuit or are an astronaut in a cramped spacecraft with a limited, recycled air supply.

    So I’m not really sure what David Bowie is getting at in this song, it’s really to frightening to contemplate.
