It's hard to notice it from where we live, inside a cozy atmosphere with cities around us and busy lives, but we live on a small rocky planet orbiting a not so special star in a vast galaxy. Astronomy often seems very distant from our routine, but in this talk I would like to show you that, when we look just a little bit closer, we can find that there is a lot of the history of the entire universe behind even the smallest of things, and that the same physics behind something like a cup of coffee, or how a cat falls, are powering the huge storms on Jupiter or how the matter falls inside black holes!
