I am a significant... speck of stardust.jpg

"Atoms that comprise life on Earth
the atoms that make up the human body,
are traceable to the crucibles
that cooked light elements into heavy elements
in their core under extreme temperatures and pressures.
These stars, the high-mass ones among them,
went unstable in the later years.
They collapsed and then exploded, scattering
their enriched guts across the galaxy.
Guts made of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen.
And all the fundamental ingrediants of life itself.

These ingredients become part of gas clouds
that condense, collapse, form the next generation
of solar systems.
Stars with orbiting planets.
And those planets now have the ingrediants for life itself.

So when I look up at the night sky
and I know that, yes, we are part of this universe,
we are in this universe,
but perhaps more important than both of those facts
is that the universe is in us.
When I reflect on that fact, I look up --
Many people feel small, 'cause they're small and the universe is big,
but I feel big.

Because my atoms came from those stars."
-- Neil deGrasse Tyson

We are stardust
We are golden
And we've got to get ourselves
Back to the garden
