For some larger context: story of Earth, abridged

Let’s all come down off this election jolt. This video shows the story of Earth condensed into about one minute.

Those of us with spiritual beliefs hold that God is intimately aware of this story, every moment of it. But in the eyes of astronomy the life of Earth isn’t much longer than a pop song on the radio. You hope it’s catchy. You hope it might be remembered for more than a few seconds.
