For you What is the most astounding fact in the universe? The same question when asked to Neil DeGrasse Tyson, who is possibly the world’s favorite astrophysicist by the Time Magazine.
Following is a youtube video containing Tyson’s full answer to Time’s question, edited with images taken by the Hubble space telescope and other images of the solar system, by videographer Max Schlickenmeyer:
When I look up at the night sky, and I know that, yes, 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. When I reflect on that fact, I look up — many people feel small, ’cause they’re small and the Universe is big, but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars.
