PSA from Neil deGrasse Tyson

One of the greatest of all cosmic perspectives that exist

is the revelation that emerged mid 20th century,

that the atoms of our body are traceable


to the crucibles in the center of stars…

that then later exploded

scattering that enrichment

into pristine gas clouds…


that then formed

star systems with planets -

one of which was the sun with earth.


So that we are not simply in this universe

the universe is alive within us.

That is a gift of modern astrophysics to civilization

that borders on the spiritual.


So that when you stand out in the night sky and look up

do you say I’m small and the universe is big.


You might say that and it is true,

but the bigger fact than that is

you are made of the same ingredients as those stars.


We are not just poetically, we are literally stardust

that achieve consciousness to contemplate the

extent of the universe in which we live.


Neil deGrasse Tyson
