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. Isn’t Symphony of Science great??? I love their videos. A modern-day Schoolhouse Rock.

  2. 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.

  3. Enchanting concept, PT. Lovely mashup too.

  4. Sort of brings new meaning to “from dust we came, to dust we return” doesn’t it? A great video PT, by an even greater man!
