I'm Made Of The Ashes Of Dead Stars

"the nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made of interior collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff" 
- Carl Sagan 
Every element on the periodic table is made of starstuff actually, expect for hydrogen. hydrogen isn't.

The video doesn't really explain all that much (although it is very well made and gives a sort of nostalgic feeling) the link below explains a lot more.
But the video is cool too or else I would't have embedded it here.
