Quote: Brief summation of the history of the Universe

The history of the Universe has been summed up thusly: ``Hydrogen is a light, odorless gas, which, given enough time, turns into people.''

John P. Wiley Jr., quoting Edward R. Harrison (a cosmologist at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst) Smithsonian Magazine, December, 1995.
