The Most Astounding Fact

Question: “What is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the Universe?”

Answer: “When I look up at the night sky, and I know that, yes, we are part of this Universe, we are in this Universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the Universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up — many people feel small, ’cause they’re small and the Universe is big, but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars.” — Neil DeGrasse Tyson, reknowned astrophysicist.
