Study Confirms Humans Really Are Made Of Star Dust

A new study has confirmed what some people have been saying for years – that humans really are made of stardust.

A new survey of 150,000 stars shows just how true the old cliché is…

Humans and their galaxy are made up of about 97 percent of the same kind of atoms and researchers found that the elements of life appear to be more prevalent toward the center of the galaxy.

Jennifer Johnson the science team chair of the SDSS-III APOGEE survey and a professor at The Ohio State University, said in the statement: “It’s a great human interest story that we are now able to map the abundance of all of the major elements found in the human body across hundreds of thousands of stars in our Milky Way”

RT reports:

A team of astronomers from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey in New Mexico enlisted the Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment (APOGEE) which uses infrared wavelengths to see through the galaxy’s dust and analyze the composition of 150,000 stars across the Milky Way.

With that data, the group then cataloged the abundance of ‘CHNOPS’ (carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorous and sulfur) elements in each of the stars, which they say represent the “building blocks” of the world around us, and found humans and their galaxy have about 97 percent of the same kind of atoms.
