We are all made of stars. And Moby knows it.

We are stardust
Billion year old carbon
We are golden
Caught in the devil's bargain
And we've got to get ourselves
back to the garden

Cool article. And I mean cool. I like that life's building blocks are inside tiny bits of ice floating among clouds. I'm bound to think of that when I next fix my wife a Bailey's on the rocks.

the jump from amino acid formation to living blob is still beyod our ken, AFAIK. this is a variation on the experiment that reproduced the conditions on virgin earth and managed to produce amino acids in 'warm pools', or something. nice work, though.
anyhoo, i love this type of thing, e.g. all metal was formed in stars, the only things massive enough to create the forces required (again AFAIK). cosmic, man.
