Meteorites And New Yorkers Are Blood Brothers

All elements heavier than helium were made in the stars, including carbon which is the foundation of life on this planet.

According to Neil deGrasse Tyson, Astrophysicist and Director at the Hayden Planetarium, the iron in the hemoglobin from the blood of people living in the the tristate area around New York City would weigh the same as the iron in the 15.5 ton Willamette meteorite on display at the planetarium...and all of it came from the same place, the stars.


"We are," as Carl Sagan said, "children of the stars, and there we will return."
