crab nebula

M1, the Crab Nebula, the remnant of a star that exploded almost 1000 years ago. The heavy elements in the universe--including the ones in our bodies--were created and dispersed by exploding stars.

I know that the molecules in my body are traceable to phenomena in the cosmos. That makes me want to grab people in the street and say, “Have you heard this!?”
– Neil DeGrasse Tyson
