Astrophysicist Neil Degrasse Tyson was asked to share the most astounding fact he knows about the Universe, this was his response.. Please help share his message.
I like what the person said – that “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.” It resonates with me as I see each atom in our body being structured like a mini universe with vast empty space within, and so the universe is in us. Besides, as he pointed out, the atoms that came from the ancient expanding and exploding stars are the same atoms that constitute our body, so we share a close affinity or kinship with the universe. When we explore the universe, we discover ourselves as part of the universe and we feel so small. Yet when we explore ourselves and know who we are and how we function, we discover the universe as part of us and we feel so big. I think that is a mystery, and I also like the following quote.
“You are the universe, expressing itself as a human for a little while.”
