Let’s just say, hypothetically speaking, that you or your wife recently had twins, high-risk twins who survived the womb against so many odds. And that, after you or your wife spent 7 weeks in the hospital monitoring these twins to ensure their survival, and another three weeks in the hospital visiting these miraculous twins in the NICU, those twins finally came home yesterday. Let’s just say, hypothetically speaking, that as a result, you’re feeling fragile, overwhelmed, exhausted, and incredibly blessed. And let’s just say that, those now perfectly healthy, normal twin girls — who by rights, probably never should’ve survived gestation — are murmuring and cooing next to you when you stumble upon a video in which Astrophysicist Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson explains the Most Astounding Fact about the Universe, and his explanation is set to the achy music of the Cinematic Orchestra.

Let’s just say, hypothetically speaking, that all those things were true. How would this video affect you?
