Star Stuff


“Supernovas are giant stars that die. New stars are born in stellar nurseries where they condense like rain drops. They get so hot that the nuclei of the atoms fuse together deep within them to make the oxygen we breathe, the carbon in our muscles, the calcium in our bones, the iron in our blood. All of this was cooked in the fiery hearts of long vanished stars. You, me, everyone……we are made of star stuff.”

The Beauty of Science


The words of the powerful may have influence in other spheres of human experience but in science, the only thing that counts is the evidence, and the logic of the argument itself.

How old is the Observable Universe you ask? 13.8 billion years old. Our planet is just a baby!!
