“The vast majority of the mass in the universe is completely invisible. It’s not made of atoms — in fact it’s not even made of the things that atoms are made of: protons, neutrons, and electrons. It’s something completely different.”
[Calvin and Hobbes was created by the wonderful Bill Waterson]
“Our story is the story of the universe. Every piece of everyone, of everything you love and everything you hate, of the thing you hold most precious, was assembled by the forces of nature in the first few minutes of the life of the universe, transformed in the hearts of the stars or created in their fiery deaths.
And when you die, those pieces will be returned to the universe in the endless cycle of death and rebirth. What a wonderful thing it is to be part of that universe. And what a story, what a majestic story.”
Professor Brian Cox, Wonders of the Universe.
