“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff." - This quote from Carl Sagan represents one of the most poetic truths of our scientific reality. That heavy elements weren't created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of earlier generations of stars that have since exploded and spread their material across the universe. We are literally made of stardust. This allows us a new and profound feeling of connection to the stars we see in the sky, to the universe, and to everyone in it. I created this painting to remind us of this, an idea which Neil deGrasse Tyson calls "the most astounding fact" in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9D05ej8u-gU
This is a print of an original oil painting. The quality is great. It is printed with archival inks and paper and lightly signed at the lower right. We put a lot of time into making sure our prints look great and we get lots of compliments on them!
