Designed by Martin Vargic, the Timeline of the Universe allows viewers to traverse billions of years of time and explore significant astronomical events… from the Big Bang all the way to the death of our planet and, ultimately, our solar system.  The full version, available within an app, extends the journey to the heat death of the universe.

Note that one “Ga” stands for “Giga Annum”, which is Latin for “billion years”.

Each events is categorized as Space, Earth, Life, and Humanity.
