spread the word... we are all stardust!

Sunday, August 11, 2013

it's true.

just imagine. when a super-sized star explodes, that's called a 'supernova'. then all kinds of matter, like iron, carbon, oxygen... go flying through space.
next step is, all the dust and bits get compressed into larger pieces that become a new star and its planets.
our bodies are made of exactly that.

and that is your physics lesson of the day. thank you for listening.

    Sounds like a Joni Mitchell song ... we are stardust, we are golden, and we've got to get ourselves back to the garden. Thanks for the science and music lesson.

    And the Perseid Meteor Shower begins tonight and goes for the next few nights, if you want to see some celestial fireworks...
