Your Connection to the Cosmos: The Origins of Your Atoms

Where did the oxygen atoms that you breathe, the iron atoms in your blood, and gold atoms in your jewelry come from? Where have they been and under what amazing conditions were they made? What is their history in the universe? In this webinar, we will trace the history of your atoms, and those in the world around us, from the Big Bang to the present day. Along the way, we will learn about the Big Bang, how stars make energy, and what happens when stars die.
