Meditative Story

Finding meaning in the vastness of the universe

Michelle Thaller, Astronomer

A universal fact: every atom of iron, from the metal in your cooking pans to the tiny mineral reserves in your blood that turn it red, is formed in a moment of death. The death of entire solar systems ripping themselves apart gives us all life. Renowned astronomer and science commentator Michelle Thaller shares a Meditative Story about cosmic awe and deep connection – both to our fellow human beings and to the universe around us. What do you see when you look up at the night sky? Michelle takes you there. Photo credit: Mariah Miranda.
