Designer and filmmaker Jamie Brightmore created this interactive infographic  Deep Time: A History of the Earth.

 

“The Earth is old, very very old. It is difficult for us humans to fully comprehend just how old our planet actually is.

This infographic offers a visual way to explore the various stages of the Earth’s history using a 12 hour clock analogy.

The Earth is roughly 4.5 billion years old. In this analogy, one second represents 104,167 years and one hour 375 millions years.”

  • 12 h = 720 mins = 43,200 seconds
  • 4,500,000,000 / 43,200 = 104,167
  • 0.5 second = 52,083 years
  • 1 second = 104,167 years
  • 1 minute = 6,250,020 / 6.25 Ma years
  • 1 hour = 375,001,200 / 375 Ma years
  • humans > 2 Ma years = 19 seconds
