The Story of Planet Earth Explained in One Minute

  • YouTube’s hit educational channel minutephysics is launching a new branch, minuteearth, which sets out to provide  “an energetic and entertaining view of trends in earth’s environment — in just a few minutes!”

    They’re kicking things off with their first video, “The Story of Our Planet,” which condenses billions of years of evolution into less than one minute, explaining how Homo Sapiens came to populate the Earth and how long it took for agriculture, hula hoops, SARS and this actual video to travel around the world.
