Neil deGrasse Tyson: We are star dust

Carl Sagan once said we are “star stuff,” and I mentioned it when writing about being an “atheist by default.” Now I’ve come across this mashup featuring astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, someone I greatly respect and admire, and he uses the slightly more elegant “star dust” in his modern take on Sagan’s statement. Accordingly, I’m revising my own statement to say, “Star dust in lieu of heaven? I can live with that.”

    1. I was a little concerned that their treatment was a little too frivolous for a topic like this, but if it gets science across to the masses, I suppose it’s worth the risk.

  1. If you’ve never seen “How the Universe Works,” do. I highly recommend it. One of the science channels had it on as a marathon two weekends ago and it blew me away.
