Not limited to NASA, astronomers, astrologers, or sailors, stars have played significant roles in science, astrophysics, metaphysics, and many spiritual traditions since mankind first glimpsed the night sky and saw them strewn like winking diamonds across a black velvet canopy.
Physics tells us that every element in the periodic table—aside from hydrogen—is essentially stardust. Pivoting off that information, if we know how many hydrogen atoms are in the human body — 4.2×10 (to the 27th power) — then we can say the rest of the atoms — 2.8×10 (to the 27th power) — are stardust. Hence, the amount of stardust atoms in our body is 40%.
Star light, star bright,
First star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.
If you could have three wishes granted—other than for yourself—what would they be?
Caveat: none of the wishes can be to have unlimited wishes…
