  • The Earth- a giant hunk of rock and water that's home to the only known life in the
  • universe.
  • It's so vast and old that it seems unchanging, yet it has in fact experienced cataclysmic
  • upheavals and routine facelifts over the course of its 4.5 billion year lifespan.
  • Just like a human being, the earth ages, and as it does it goes through major changes.
  • Hello and welcome to another episode of The Infographics Show- today we're taking a look
  • at the most important events in the Earth's history.
  • 4.5 billion years ago the Earth and most of the solar system was nothing more than a ring
  • of protoplanetary dust circling the sun.
  • However over time gravity gradually drew individual particles of dust together, creating ever
  • larger clumps.
  • Eventually the clumps grew to the size of boulders, then to the size of mountains, and
  • over many millions of years the Earth was formed.
  • Yet this newborn earth was nothing like what you see today, with little if any water and
  • a surface that was perpetually molten.
  • Over millions more years the outer layer cooled however to form a crust, and planetary impacts
  • of comets and asteroids brought all the water that you see today to the Earth from space.
  • Not long after the Earth's creation it's thought that gravity put it on a collision course
  • with another nascent planet roughly the size of Mars.
  • This planet, named Theia, slammed into the Earth with 100 million times more energy than
  • the impact that wiped out the dinosaurs, and hurled vaporized chunks of both bodies out
  • into space.
  • Gravity eventually bound the ejecta together and created our Moon.
  • This impact gave our planet the tilt it has today, which in turn gives us our four seasons,
  • and helped stabilize its spin- two things which scientists believe were critical for
  • the evolution of advanced life.
  • Sometime between 4 and 3.5 billion years ago the first organisms evolved on earth.
  • Scientists aren't exactly sure on when this occurred as the oldest confirmed fossils of
  • single-celled microorganisms are 3.5 billion years old, but there could be undiscovered
  • older fossils waiting to be dug up.
  • What scientists do know is that life evolved almost as soon as it possibly could, immediately
  • after the heavy bombardment stage of our earth's evolution when it was being periodically slammed
  • by huge asteroids and comets.
  • This gives many scientists hope that life is actually abundant in the universe, and
  • not just here on Earth.
  • It's believed that the first life on earth used chemical reactions to power itself, but
  • it wasn't long after it first appeared- perhaps as short as just 100 million years- that microorganisms
  • evolved to use sunlight for energy.
  • By capturing rays of sunshine these microorganisms were able to make sugars from simple molecules,
  • a vastly more efficient means of providing energy than the chemical reactions employed
  • by their ancestors.
  • Photosynthesis, and the unlocking of exponentially greater energy potential in organisms, may
  • have been the key to life's diversity.
  • About 3.5 to 3.2 billion years ago the first continents began to form and plate tectonics
  • began in earnest.
  • Before this it's thought that giant plumes of very hot magma shot new material straight
  • to the surface and began to build landmasses, but as heat-generating radioactive elements
  • began to run low in the Earth's interior, the mantle began to cool and less and less
  • of these 'super plumes' were created.
  • This allowed convection cells to become stable in the mantle and start driving the movements
  • of huge continental plates.
  • If you like breathing oxygen- and we suspect most of you do- then you should be grateful
  • to tiny little bacteria that existed 2.4 billion years ago.
  • For half of the Earth's life there was very little oxygen in the atmosphere, but then
  • suddenly some bacteria evolved to use photosynthesis to make sugar from carbon dioxide and water,
  • much the same way as plants today.
  • This was a huge leap forward in evolution, as before then photosynthesizing microbes
  • did not release oxygen as a waste product.
  • Known as the Great Oxidation Event, this turning point in earth's history is also known as
  • The Great Oxygen Catastrophe, because the introduction of this volatile gas was toxic
  • to most pre-existing life.
  • These tiny oxygen producing microbes would go on to kill almost all life on earth as
  • a consequence.
  • Around 1.2 billion years ago life took another significant leap forward when two microbes
  • got together, put on some slow jazz music, dimmed the lights, and invented sex.
  • Scientists don't know why organisms simply stopped dividing in two to reproduce, but
  • they discovered fossils of red algae which are thought to be the first organisms to develop
  • specialized sex cells- in their case, spores- indicate the change was relatively sudden.
  • Shortly after the invention of sex, life took its most significant leap forward, developing
  • the first multicellular organisms about 1 billion years ago.
  • Up until then life had consisted solely of single-celled organisms living individually
  • or in colonies, but now cells were working together to form complex life and creating
  • things like mouths, limbs, and sensory organs.
  • Plants would beat animals to the punch though, and secure a foothold in this brave new world
  • first.
  • Another mystery of science, the Cambrian explosion took place 535 million years ago and gave
  • us almost every group of modern animals alive today.
  • Animals exploded in variety, sizes, and shapes, and filled every available niche both on the
  • seafloor and in the water column.
  • This explosion of animal life also saw the evolution of the first predators, and launched
  • the predator/prey arms race of weapons and defenses that persists to this day.
  • Towards the end of the Cambrian Explosion, about 465 million years ago, plants began
  • to venture onto the land.
  • Descendants of green algae, plants quickly diversified into the descendants of today's
  • modern plant life.
  • Animals also made the trek to land, but only briefly- most likely to lay eggs somewhere
  • without predators.
  • However these brief forays and the expansion of plant life on land led animals to begin
  • to evolve to exist on land.
  • These first plant eaters were quickly followed by their predators.
  • About 460 to 430 million years ago though things took a turn for the worse for Earth's
  • budding animal and plant life.
  • Though life had exploded during the Ordovician period, towards the end the planet began to
  • cool and ice sheets spread out from the poles.
  • 85% of all marine species were wiped out, and fish became much more common as a result.
  • Evolving from newt-like amphibians, the first reptiles appeared about 320 million years
  • ago in the middle of the Late Paleozoic Ice Age.
  • Unlike their amphibian ancestors though reptiles had tough, scaly skin and laid eggs with hard
  • shells.
  • These evolutionary adaptations allowed them to leave their amphibious lifestyle behind
  • and begin the colonization of the earth, eventually leading to the age of the dinosaurs.
  • Before dinosaurs could arrive on the scene though, the earth threw a particularly violent
  • temper tantrum lasting millions of years and exploded with volcanic activity.
  • Toxic gases in the atmosphere led to the acidification of the oceans, killing up to 96% of all marine
  • species and almost all land animals as well.
  • Despite being nearly wiped out- again- life would bounce back, and in the aftermath of
  • what is now known as The Great Dying, the first dinosaurs evolved.
  • As dinosaurs began to rule the earth 220 million years ago, a small group of them took a different
  • evolutionary path.
  • Descending from small reptiles called cynodonts with faces like dogs and possibly even having
  • fur or whiskers, the first mammals were the size of a shrew and were almost certainly
  • only active at night so they could avoid being easy meals for their dinosaur overlords.
  • Their nocturnal lifestyle may also have led to their warm-bloodedness, and the ability
  • to keep their body temperature constant regardless of the environmental temperature- a key adaptation
  • for surviving a future catastrophe...
  • Sixty five million years ago a giant asteroid larger than Mount Everest smashed into modern-day
  • Mexico.
  • The asteroid was so huge that just as the tip was touching the surface of the earth,
  • its uppermost edge was still high up in the atmosphere.
  • The initial explosion devastated a large area of the earth and created tsunamis that wiped
  • out coastal areas.
  • As debris from the explosion was hurled up into space and re-entered the atmosphere on
  • the other side of the earth, it set off huge forest fires around the world.
  • Dust thrown into the upper atmosphere would block out sunlight and bring about a miniature
  • and sudden ice age that would be the fifth and last mass extinction on our planet.
  • You probably didn't know, but the first mammals were actually egg layers just like their reptile
  • brethren.
  • In the aftermath of the global extinction event that killed off the dinosaurs though
  • many mammals began to nourish their young inside their womb, which was safer than laying
  • eggs in a cold, hostile world.
  • About 60 to 55 million years ago, some of these early mammals evolved into the very
  • first primates, who would eventually give rise to modern apes, monkeys, and of course
  • humans.
  • The first true apes appeared in Africa about 25 million years ago, then suddenly about
  • 13 to 7 million years ago the ape family split into the ancestors of modern humans and the
  • ancestors of modern apes.
  • The oldest known hominid was Sahelanthropus tchadensis, and lived about 7 million years
  • ago.
  • Hominids proved to be so successful that their evolution continued down through the ages
  • until finally, 200,000 years ago we appeared on the scene, irrevocably changing the earth
  • forever.
  • Our earth has a long and storied history of death, rebirth, and constant change.
  • It might seem static and unchanging to us with our short life spans, but we've only
  • existed for a blink of an eye in terms of planetary history, and the processes that
  • shape our world and the species within it are constant and incessant, working every
  • single day to create a new future.
  • For the first time in the earth's history though what that future may look like is largely
  • dependent on one of its own species, and as we face the threats of global warming and
  • ever-more destructive wars, we will be largely responsible for our own survival or extinction
  • in a way no other species has ever been.
  • If you could have been alive to see any event in Earth's history, which would it be?
