Tulip Nebula - I'm pinning this for the picture. The article says we are made of star stuff. That sounds nice and poetic, but it doesn't give you any meaning, unfortunately. Star stuff doesn't care about you.
This image from Nasa's Spitzer Space Telescope shows a stellar nursery containing thousand of young stars & developing protostars near the sword of the constellation Orion. I heart the Spitzer space telescope.
