Lecture: Greatest Cosmology Sermon Ever

When Carl Sagan first spoke of the cosmos, he helped people wrap their brains around the idea through digestible facts, like “the 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.” But it’s thought-provoking insights like “We are made of star stuff” that continue to create curiosity in this field.

In a time when people have an insatiable thirst for knowledge, Neil deGrasse Tyson is another profound storyteller who can spark imaginations.  As he tells the story of his calling to study the universe, you can’t help but feel something. Some would call it spiritual, others would call it religious and some would point to a connection with the universe. Whichever it maybe is for each person to determine. But what I can say is that this is quite possibly “The Greatest Science Sermon” ever.
