Are There Acorns in Space?

Sitting on this couch, in my little house, on my small plot of land... on this pale blue dot suspended in a sunbeam, all seems insignificant, yet, impossibly unlikely.  If a tree were to suddenly be rocketed into space, with no one to watch it fly, it would be no less insignificant, nor more unlikely than all of us being right where we are right now, at this point in the universe.  Well, except to the squirrels who just became astronauts.
