According to Smithsonian Magazine, half of the atoms in our bodies come from other galaxies. When Neil deGrasse Tyson said that we are stardust, he meant literally! The atoms come from the Milky Way, but other galaxies too, as far as a million light years away (light years are how long light takes to travel from somewhere to somewhere else.) How do we get these atoms? Well, thanks to supernova explosions and intergalactic transfer, we’re, as astronomer Carl Sagan puts it, made of ‘star stuff.’ Also, ‘space winds’ to put it more simply!We’re stardust, hmm, so, you mean, like, Pixie Dust?
We hope today’s fact has entertained you! If you have any more questions on it, the comments are waiting and we’ll reply ASAP!
