UniverseSciency* quote that didn’t fit into a single tweet so I thought it would find a home here.

Homo Sapiens are an extant genus of the tribe Hominini of the family Hominidae of the order Primates of the class Mammalia of the phylum Chordata of the kingdom Animalia living on and around a terrestrial planet orbiting a yellow dwarf star on the periphery of a barred spiral galaxy amongst an estimated 176 billion galaxies in the observable universe 13.798 billion years after the universe expanded from a point of singularity.

*sciency – from the Urban dictionary
