Evolution Of The Universe In A Year!

I have stumbled across this amazing picture which chronicles the history of the Universe compressed into a calender year!

More Info:

The Universe is 13.73 billion years old, according to measurements made by astrophysicists. Suppose that you now have that period of 13.73 billion years, and you compress the evolution of the Universe into a single calender year: what you will get is the wonderful picture below.

It is particularly striking that most of the modern scientific knowledge are done in the last one second of the graph, which is around 400 years in current timeline.


The image below is an original work by Ethan Siegen from Starts with a bang.
