what is the most astounding fact you can
00:03
share with us about the universe the
00:07
most astounding fact the most astounding
00:10
fact is the knowledge that the atoms
00:15
that comprise life on Earth the atoms
00:19
that make up the human body are
00:22
traceable to the crucibles that cooked
00:27
light elements into heavy ions in their
00:31
core under extreme temperatures and
00:35
pressures these stars the high mass ones
00:37
among them went unstable in their later
00:40
years they collapsed and then exploded
00:44
scattering their enriched guts across
00:47
the galaxy guts made of carbon nitrogen
00:52
oxygen
00:55
and all the fundamental ingredients of
00:57
life itself these ingredients become

part of gas clouds that condense
01:02
collapse form the next generation of
01:06
solar systems stars with orbiting

planets and those planets now have the

ingredients for life itself so that when

reflect on that fact I look up many
01:38
people feel small because they’re small
01:39
in the universe is big but I feel big
01:42
because my atoms came from those stars
01:48
there’s a level of connectivity that’s
01:51
really what you want in life you want to
01:52
feel connected want to feel relevant
01:55
what it feel like your participant the
02:00
goings-on of activities and events
02:02
around you that’s precisely what we are
