#icymi this past weekend, #APOD had a GREAT graphic showing where all the elements in the periodic table come from đŸ€“ (data from @jajohnson51)
"The hydrogen in your body, present in every molecule of water, came from the Big Bang." #WednesdayWisdom
The carbon and oxygen in your body - that came from stars. The iron in your blood - from a star that exploded in a supernova. We are *literally* made of stars. This is one of my favorite facts about astronomy...or really, about the world. About life. About us! đŸ€Ż #WednesdayWisdom
This gets to the essence of connection - we are connected, *viscerally* - to the universe. But that means we are also connected to each other. All of us - all of the human race - we have the same origin. And that is the cosmos. #WednesdayWisdom
Thanks for all the Twitter love for the "You Are Stardust" thread!! It's buried in a reply (sorry about that!) but the original APOD post is here: https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap200809.html All this makes me want to go watch some old Cosmos shows 😊
