"The Stardust Revolution", Jacob Berkowitz on Atheists Talk #207, Sunday, February 24, 2013.

Astrobiology is necessarily still a largely speculative field, which could make it difficult to write a book on the topic. That didn't phase journalist and performer Jacob Berkowitz, who has a passion for science that has started from a disadvantaged position. In his book The Stardust Revolution: The New Story of Our Origin in the Stars, Berkowitz chronicles the histories of astronomy, chemistry, and evolutionary biology that have come together to demonstrate that we humans are, as Carl Sagan famously said, "made of star stuff". From there, Berkowitz goes on to speculate about how what we know about our own origins may inform what we can determine about life elsewhere in our universe.

Join us this Sunday to talk with Berkowitz about our celestial past and possible future.
