Star stuff

Here's a view of the periodic table of elements but colour coded for where the elements actually come from. Interestingly all the elements that are essential to most complex life (i.e. Homo-sapiens!), like Carbon, Nitrogen, Oxygen etc. come from stars essentially dying, typically by exploding! So, forget Jesus, reality is that stars died so you could be here.
