Scientic Proof All Humans Are Stars


We are all made of stardust. It sounds like a line from a poem, but there is some solid science behind this statement: almost every element on Earth was formed at the heart of a star. After the Big Bang, tiny particles bound together to form hydrogen and helium. The human body is about 60% water and hydrogen accounts for 11% of that water mass.

The carbon, nitrogen and oxygen atoms in our bodies, as well as atoms of all other heavy elements, were created in previous generations of stars over 4.5 billion years ago. Humans and every other animal as well as most of the matter on Earth contain these elements, we are literally made of star stuff, said Chris Impey, professor of astronomy at the University of Arizona.


“All organic matter containing carbon was produced originally in stars,” Impey told Life’s Little Mysteries. “The universe was originally hydrogen and helium, the carbon was made subsequently, over billions of years.”

Every element in the periodic table aside from hydrogen is essentially stardust, If we know how many hydrogen atoms are in our body, then we can say that the rest is stardust.Β  Our body is composed of roughly 7×1027 atoms.

Now it turns out that of those billion billion billion atoms, 4.2×1027 of them are hydrogen. This leaves 2.8×1027 atoms of stardust. Thus the amount of stardust atoms in our body is 40%.

  1. This is a reminder that we are all meant to be greater than what we think we can be. Carl Sagan says the same thing in Cosmos “β€œThe nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.” πŸ™‚

    1. It is something else right?

      There is something really beautiful behind the mysteries of our very true origins.

      We’re all very powerful divine beings indeed. It would be mind-shifting to see everyone using their divinity for greater-good instead of greater-evil.

      Some people are not even aware of their power… Some are aware but still don’t know how to use it. Then there is everyone else in between πŸ˜‰

      Besides, I love Carl Sagan! He’s an inspiration!

      Thanks for swinging by my blog and interacting with me!

      Infinite peace and wisdom!

  2. It was my pleasure. πŸ™‚
    Yes there is something else. Like you rightly said, divinity.
    Imagining the entire human race enlightened with this thought is indeed “mind-shifting”!!!!
    The world would be so much better if that were to happen. πŸ™‚
