Each one of us is made up of particles of stardust hundreds of billions of stars that died providing us with our makeup. The earth and all of its living things are made of stars. Stars process and make carbon oxygen, nitrogen that is in the air, the iron in your blood. We are made of star stuff. Every single atom in our body has gone through the life cycles of many generations of stars. While watching these series I felt my head would explode how can a child grasp it?
The summer heat keeps us up late at night and looking up at the skies and we quote Twain for good measure as we sip on the iced tea... “We had the sky up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them, and discuss about whether they was made or only just happened.” Huck Finn
"Man must rise above the Earth--to the top of the atmosphere and beyond--for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives." Socrates
