We are all made of stars..... I love that thought. :)

Much of the universe's water is produced as a byproduct of star formation. When stars are born, their birth is accompanied by a strong outward wind of gas and dust. When this outflow of material eventually impacts the surrounding gas, the shock waves that are created compress and heat the gas. The water observed is quickly produced in this warm dense gas.

From a biological standpoint, water has many distinct properties that are critical for the proliferation of life that set it apart from other substances. It carries out this role by allowing organic compounds to react in ways that ultimately allow replication. All known forms of life depend on water.

Great image. I would have given it a 10. I can't imagine why anyone would give it a 1 or 2. I just can't imagine.

I couldn't disagree more. You've made great choices in content here.

Great execution too.

Very creative. I like the intensity of the green as for me "origins" and "green" go hand and hand.

Amazingly creative idea! There is so much right with this photo.

Technically really good work; wonder why there are pebbles on the soil, though, might be a tad too much to put in one picture. Ribbon candidate nevertheless.

Beautiful. Just wish she was a bit larger, or perhaps have a tighter crop.
