Doctor Neil DeGrasse Tyson is a well known science advocate, doctor of astrophysics, and the host of the television show The Cosmos. He’s this generation’s Carl Sagan and Bill Nye rolled into one delightful package.
Tyson is well noted for using and promoting consistently unique and refreshing perspectives. The unique qualities of his introspection is perfectly debuted here.
Some one asks Tyson, ’What is the most astonishing fact you can share with us about the universe?’
Tyson replies with an explanation of how we are all made of stars. The same atoms found in you in any moment are the same as the ones found throughout the universe. All physical object in the universe were made in cosmic collisions and death of stars. All things start from something old and as everything ages it springs forward new potentials.
Tyson has a simple way of explaining difficult ideas. Every Time I’ve heard him speak there are underlying tones of spirituality that make my heart remember the basic principle that we are all in this together.
If you’ve never quite made sense of hearing that we are ‘children of the stars’ or ‘beings of light’ this video is a must see for you! One of my favorite quotes from this video is,
“Yes we are part of this universe, we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up, many people feel small because they are small and the universe is big. But I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars.”
