Neil deGrasse Tyson – The Most Astounding Fact

Neil deGrasse Tyson was asked what was the most astounding fact about the universe….. I think he nailed it with this answer.

Neil continues:

“When I reflect on that fact, I look up – many people feel small because they’re small and the Universe is big – but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars. There’s a level of connectivity. That’s really what you want in life, you want to feel connected, you want to feel relevant you want to feel like a participant in the goings on of activities and events around you That’s precisely what we are, just by being alive…”
