    come out of

    We humans have always pondered the heavens. Astronomy and physics have come out of our wonder at the points of light in the darkness. Scientists now want to take advantage of that natural nightly gaze. They’re turning to citizen scientists to count stars as a way to measure light pollution.

    The project will take place from October 20th to November 3. It’s sponsored by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research. Interested volunteers in the northern hemisphere will search for the constellation Cygnus. In the southern hemisphere they’ll be looking for Sagittarius.

    There is a bunch of meanings of "come out". What is its meaning in this context?

    "emerged from", "originated in".
    Astronomy and physics had their origin in our wonder ..."
    If something "originates in something", it "comes out of that thing".
