Understanding precisely how stars cook up all the elements in the universe in their nuclear furnaces and then explosively distribute them has been the grandest triumph of all for nuclear physicists.
"You and your neighbor and I, each one of us and all of us, are truly and literally . . . stardust."
William A. Fowler, Nobel Prize 1983

You are the Universe

“In an expanding space all momenta decrease . . . This simple law has an even simpler interpretation in wave mechanics: all wavelengths, being inversely proportional to the momenta, simply expand with space.”
Erwin Schrödinger, Nobel Prize 1933
