We Are In the Universe, and the Universe is in Us

It is the most intriguing story we know of: our existence here is dependent on extraordinary processes that happened on a nearly incomprehensible scale. The death of stars, the explosions, the unbelievable carnage that allowed our Universe to have such a rich chemistry eventually led to the existence of reproducing forms in a tiny, insignificant corner of some random galaxy.

Neil deGrasse Tyson explains this amazing scientific and true story about our shared history and our connection with everything around us. Let us keep asking questions and keep inquiring. That’s the spirit of science, and it’s an endeavor that will, from time to time, take your breath away.
