The atoms of our bodies are traceable to stars that manufactured them in their cores and exploded these enriched ingredients across our galaxy, billions of years ago. For this reason, we are biologically connected to every other living thing in the world. We are chemically connected to all molecules on Earth. And we are atomically connected to all atoms in the universe. We are not figuratively, but literally stardust.
I’ve decided I’m going to start posting a time lapse every night just before I go to bed. Whenever I struggle to get to sleep I go through old clips like this one and it just helps me drift off that little bit easier. So I thought it would be worth just posting a few of them before I go bed in case anyone is struggling to fall asleep.
Scientists just found a black hole that’s 12 billion times bigger than the sun.
It may have the wildly unexciting name of SDSS J0100+2802, but don’t let that fool you: This black hole is one of the most massive ever recorded. It was also born a mere 900 million years after the Big Bang, which has scientists utterly confounded.
