History of the Earth in 5 1/2 minutes

Last year I made an animated timeline of the Middle Ages, from my book Science: a Discovery in Comics. Now I’ve gone a bit further and animated the entire History of the Earth!

Click on the picture and it will take you to the YouTube video:

 

I’m pretty proud of this. I used Sparkol Videoscribe to make it, a program that’s perfect for my kind of bring-your-comics-to-life animation.

The duration is just under five and a half minutes, which is an eternity on the internet – but I calculated that if I had done the timeline of the earth on the same scale as I did the Middle Ages (a thousand years in three and a half minutes), this animation would have been 30 years.

Yes, THIRTY YEARS!
