As Carl Sagan has said, we are all star stuff. Meaning that all the atoms that comprise the Earth and everything on it (including us) were forged in collapsing stars and scattered throughout the universe when those stars exploded. I always loved that observation.

But I don't think I have ever heard it put into better context than how Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson puts it in this video

Incredible. I really love watching documentaries about astronomy, just watched a bunch of them on Netflix a few weeks ago.

Also check out this video. I want to see the stars like this!
