Neil DeGrasse Tyson shares the most astounding fact about the universe
A few weeks back, my column over at Precipitate, Everything we know is stardust, focused on that very fact. In it, I said:
The curse laid on the first human by God in the Garden of Eden, it turns out, is perfectly accurate: what are we humans but the dust that makes up the entire universe? We are made of the history of everything that has ever or will ever be. We are stardust of the billions of years old supernovae of the universe. Which is a beautiful idea, one that is capable of providing relief from the tumult of the day to day. Amazingly, it just happens to be accurate.
Today I saw this video, and I thought, I will say never say anything better than Neil DeGrasse Tyson.
