This small talk features excerpts from an interview with Professor Tom Burns of Ohio Wesleyan University and Director of Perkins Observatory.

“The surface of the Earth is the shore of the cosmic ocean…
Some part of our being knows this is where we came from.
We long to return… And we can.
Because the cosmos is also within us.
We’re made of star stuff.
We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.”
– Carl Sagan
