All chemical elements come from explosions of stars, but one man on the telly tonight put it this way:

All naturally occuring elements … are all cooked in cosmic cauldrons. Romantically, you could say that we are all made of stardust, but the truth is also, that we’re all just nuclear waste.

Professor Jim Al-Khalili, seen on Atom, BBC4, 25th October 2010
