“We Are Dead Stars” is a video by The Atlantic in collaboration with SoundVision Productions’ The Really Big Questions featuring NASA astronomer Dr. Michelle Thaller explaining how every atom within our bodies came from ancient stars.

Every atom in our bodies was fused in an ancient star. NASA astronomer Dr. Michelle Thaller explains how the iron in our blood connects us to one of the most violent acts in the universe—a supernova explosion—and what the universe might look like when all the stars die out.
