The universe is in us!

As a non-religious person it can be rare to encounter truly inspiring words about the cosmos, humanity and our lives. However, scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson delivers such inspiration beautifully in this short clip:

The message is profound in that the atoms that make up our bodies necessarily were created in stars. Hydrogen and helium had to cook within giant stars for millions upon millions of years before eventually forming heavier elements. Then by exploding and spreading their elements of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, etc. throughout the universe it made us possible.

We are the byproduct of the universe at work. Everything that you see happening in the night sky is part of who we are. We are not alone as we belong to the universe. It is in us!
