We are made of stardust--and so is all life as we know it. Every chemical element on earth except hydrogen and helium has been scattered across the universe in great stellar explosions and recycled into new stars, planets, and parts of us. In this engrossing book, John and Mary Gribbin explain how developments in astronomy from the 1920s to the present day have led to this startling realization and to a new understanding of the relationship between the Universe and the Earth. The new preface discusses recent scientific developments that confirm the idea that life must be a common occurrence across the universe.
