“You may have heard the world is made up of atoms and molecules, but it’s really made up of stories. When you sit with an individual that’s been here, you can give quantitative data a qualitative overlay.” –William Turner

This blog has always been about the cosmic story common to us all: the story of where all this comes from. It’s no coincidence I named it Starts With A Bang; perhaps the most remarkable thing in the entire Universe is that it can be scientifically understood!

And so I’m incredibly pleased to share with you — as we leave our Messier Monday series behind — the newest Monday series: Genesis, the story of where all this comes from.
