“The amazing thing is that every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. The atoms in your left hand probably came from a different start than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing that I know about physics. You are all stardust.”
So begins an extraordinary look at the origins of life itself and the way we interconnect. A dizzying array of visuals from out into the stars to into the earth.
