“Not all dust stays up there… A piece of space falls on your ear every day… Forty thousand tons of cosmic dust reach the Earth yearly… what we inhale… stardust if you will… reverberation… A cube of… black matter… dark energy… cosmic web… Look inside that space dust… Space is mostly space but is it not empty… Besides breathing arachnids the Milky Way in the night sky we see is dust! And in that strip, the cosmic web we see are atoms, elements, chemistry, that it is made off… Our sun, planets, moon, asteroids and comets, everything in our solar system began as cloud of dust 5 billion years ago… gravity began to sweep into a pile, and billion… gazillions of particles start to condensate into what the solar system is today and some of that dust is still up there today and you can see it at night glowing… the zodiacal light… deposited in this dark cosmic web.”

(Tomás Saraceno, 2016)

*Dust mites are actually from the same family as arachnids!
