What is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the Universe?

Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson
"The most astounding fact is the knowledge that the atoms that comprise life on Earth, the atoms that make up the human body are traceable to the crucibles that cooked light elements into heavy elements in their core under extreme temperatures and pressures.  These stars, the high mass ones among them, went unstable in their later years.  They collapsed and then exploded, scattering their enriched guts across the galaxy; guts made of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and all the fundamental ingredients of life itself.  These ingredients become part of gas clouds that condense, collapse, form the next generation of solar systems, stars with orbiting planets, and those planets now have the ingredients for life itself. "

Could I use this for a project of mine? Of course,, full credit will be given, I assure you, though I wouldn't blame you for saying "no".

Sure, so long as it's not going to be sold, licensed, or in any way used commercially.

I don't deal with commercial stuff. I simply make art, then post it on DA.

I'm just stunned by all these works! You're by far one of the most talented space-artists (if that's a term, otherwise it is now.) here by far!

You are too kind!  Yes it is a word!  Space art is my specialty so I am a space-artist :D

Thanks :)
