Scientists believe that stars are formed from dust clouds.

Not quite. Some stars form from matter created by previously exploded stars. As do planets and life. But the original stars form out of clouds of hydrogen gas.

Sagan was being poetic when he said we are star dust. Another scientist put it less poetically and no less accurately by saying we are nuclear waste.
