Quotes from 'How the Universe Works'


"The Bible says from dust to dust. Astronomers say from stardust to stardust."

________________________

“Every atom in your body was produced inside the fiery core of a star.”

“People think of space as being something very distant and very remote; it’s light years away, hugely distant from us. That’s completely wrong. Supernovae are right here. We are their children, they made us, literally put us together.”
________________________

“We are star stuff. Without the supernovas, we could not exist. So when we walk around at night, and we look up at night sky and see the stars, and we feel somehow a part of it… the truth is, we are; they are our parents.”
________________________

“every atom in your body was once inside a star that exploded. and the atoms in your left hand may have come from a different star than the atoms in your right hand. you are literally star dust.”

“We should be amazed to live at this time. Here, at a random time in the history of the universe, on a random planet, on the outskirts of a random galaxy, where we can ask questions and understand things from the beginning of the universe to the end. We should celebrate our brief moment in the sun.”

“Everything that makes us human: the atoms in our bodies, the jewelry we wear, all the things that lead to the tragedy of life and the beauty and the excitement, love, everything else, arose because of processes that happened 14 billion years ago. And if we really want to understand ourselves at some fundamental level we really have to understand the Big Bang.”
________________________

“Honestly, the future of the universe looks kind of grim but you can take something positive out of that: this is the best time to be alive. This is the time where stars can form and life can flourish. We are in the golden age of the universe right now. We live in a season for life in the universe, if you will, that lasts for a few billion years and that makes me at least appreciate the way things are right now because they weren't always that way and they won’t always be.”
________________________

Our sun is our step mother. Our true mother died in a supernova explosion to give birth to the elements which made up our body. But how come the poets and the songwriters, how come they don’t write poems to our true mother? It’s perhaps they don’t understand physics and the laws of stellar evolution.
