We’re going on a journey. This video depicts billion years of time unfolding
on a 10 minute scale – from to Big Bang to today. Every passing second represents
22 million years. On this scale, humans do not appear
until the last fraction of second. The universe begins in 5… The universe begins in 4… The universe begins in 3… The universe begins in 2… The universe begins in 1… Event: The Big Bang Event: The First Star>From the primordial cloud of gas and cosmic dust gravity forged the stars. Event: Early Star Formation Event: Early galaxy formation Gravity connects stellar systems together
in vast galaxies and steers them in their journey through unbounded space. The relentless flow of time has driven the evolution of the universe and created extraordinary wonders. Some galaxies formed so close together that
they are locked in a gravitational embrace. What a magnificent sight it will be! As it evolves the universe passes through distinct eras, vast ages whose beginnings and endings are marked by unique milestones: the births and deaths of its wonders. We’re the product of a grand evolutionary sequence. Cosmic evolution. About which we are only occasionally aware. Event: Milk Way Formation Gravity is the great creator, the constructor of worlds. But gravity is also the destroyer, because it’s relentless. Event: Black Hole Formation When a star around 15 times the mass of our
Sun collapses, all the matter in it’s core is crushed into
an infinite void of blackness, know as Stellar Mass Black Hole. The immense gravitational pull of these monsters can rip a star apart. They tear matter from its surface, and drag it into orbit. This super-heated matter spins around the mouth of the black hole, and great jets of radiation fire from the core. Although these jets can be seen across the cosmos, the core itself remains a mystery. Not even light can escape, so their interior is forever hidden from us. Event: Star Death and Rebirt. Throughout the stars life, there’s a constantly battle between energy pushing out and
gravity pushing in. When it runs out of fuel, the star collapses and then explodes with the brightness of
a billion of suns. As the star is torn apart, it will fire out into space all the elements all the elements that it created on it’s life and death. These are new stars, forming from the elements blown out by supernova explosions. New stars being born, from the remains of dead ones. And it’s from this universal process of death, and rebirth that we emerged. Because it was in a nebula just like this 5 billion years ago that our Sun was formed. Event: Collapse of Protoplanetary Dust Cloud Clouds of hydrogen collapses further and further
onto the force of gravity and the life cycle of a new star has begun. A star was born, that would come to be known, as the Sun. Event: Birth of the Sun. Around it, a network of planets formed, among them, was the Earth. Event: Formation of Earth Debris left over the formation of the Solar System collides with the Earth. Event: Formation of the Moon Event: Hadean Eon Earth, began life as a molten hell. The early continents was still forming. Event: Archean Eon The land was dominated by volcanoes hostile and lifeless. But deep in the oceans, life had begun. Event: Early Life Forms The latest theory is that chemicals, spewing from underwater volcanic vents solidified and created the conditions needed for the first cells to form. For some 3 billion years simple, microscopic organisms were the most advanced
form of life on the planet. Cyanobacteria and other oxygen producer microbes began to blue. Event: Oxygenation of Atmosphere These flourished in colonies of plant like microbes that pumped out enormous
volumes of oxygen. And was this increasing oxygen that was the key for the rise of the animal kingdom. Event: Complex Single Celuled Life Organisms started to produce oxygen to respire. You will need of a lot more energy which allows the development of more complex life. Event: Proterozoic Eon Just before complex life appeared, the world was in the grip of the biggest
ice age in its entire history. Event: Snowball Earth Event: First Multiceluled Animals And then suddenly, advanced organisms have appeared. Event: Cambrian Explosion Event: Ordovician Period Event: Silurian Period Event: Devonian Period Event: Carboniferous Period Event: Permian Period Event: Triassic Period Event: Cretaceous Period Event: Rise of Mammals Event: Homo Sapiens Timelapse of the Entire Universe Crafted by Melodysheep For more about his video, visit
