Question to ponder

When you think about it, you are just borrowing those atoms for about a century or so, but they have been around for 15 billion years (and not all of that time on the planet Earth). I like to imagine a movie that could somehow follow the entire 15 billion year existence of one of these atoms -- sped up, of course. (Are there any movie majors in this course? This would be really cool to do!)
