Life, the Universe, and Bedtime
I'm totally paraphrasing this. Brian was on bedtime duty tonight. Somehow they got on the subject of how the universe was born.
"Dad, was Earth born from another Earth, or was it adopted from another Earth?"
Brian went on to discuss the supernova (or -novae) that created the elements from which Earth was made, the accretion disk, the birth of the sun, and the creation of Earth.
"Hey, Dad? You know a lot about space."
