"We are stardust brought to life, then empowered by the universe to figure itself out - - and we have only just begun."

Neil is the best science communicator since Carl Sagan. Can't wait for the new Cosmos: Possible Worlds and glad he was cleared in the accusations from a Christian site that obviously wants his image destroyed.

What was that? Didn’t hear of that one!


Gotta love Neil


That sounds very like god.


Why should the universe want to figure itself out?
Does the universe have any interest in becoming self-aware?
I don't think so


he borrowed the stardust imagery from carl sagan, which is fine.


And from Crosby, Stills, and Nash.

@jerry99 lol they got it from sagan too!


@jerry99 ,
we may as well go back to Hoagy Carmichael who composed stardust in 1927. here's Doris Day's version.


@callmedubious lol sagan didn't invent the word. he just came up with the idea that that's what we're all made of. he also called it star-stuff.



From ignorance we may end before we even get started.
