Putting the history of Earth into perspective

As we saw in the previous video (entitled "Our story in 6mins"), the Earth is really, really old.

Over 4 1/2 billion years old, in fact. How do we begin to comprehend a number that large? It can help to put it in terms we can understand by depicting it using a more fathomable scale.

Watch to see where Earth's major events would fall on a timeline stretching across the US from Los Angeles to New York. The video includes a useful perspective on how little time man has inhabited planet Earth and how rapidly our evolution has been occurring in more recent years.
