Everything that surrounds us, animals, the air we breathe, the water we drink, is composed of atoms that were created inside the stars. We are made of starstuff.
Recent scientific findings highlight an even deeper and disturbing idea. The role of the stars doesn’t stop there. Not only they created the matter, the atoms that make living things. They may also be responsible for creating, evolving and extinguishing life anywhere in the universe.
Here begins an adventure to discover a natural phenomenon hidden from our eyes: the cosmic radiation. An exciting world, where astronomy meets particle physics and biology. In the cosmic radiation, we are looking for the link between life and the most distant stars.
Perhaps, stars bring more than just the matter that we are made of.
Perhaps we are not only starstuff.
