6/ Do you have any gold jewelry? Look at it: Break it down into its individual atoms. Count them. Now ponder this: 3 out of every 1000 of those gold atoms may have come from that single event: 2 neutron stars merging to become a black hole.

You’re wearing exploded neutron star.

The entirety of the solar system is made up of supernovae and other debris from stellar explosions.
