8 minute lesson
Did you know a T-Rex is closer to us in history than it is to a Stegosaurus? Crazy right?
We all too often think of ourselves as the most important part of the history of time, but as it turns out, we are just a tiny speck on the history of everything. Here to put things in perspective, and at a few points make you gasp with surprise, is In a Nutshell explaining the history of everything on this planet!
Wow! Putting everything into perspective is pretty unbelievable. Life on Earth has changed so much throughout its history, and the biggest changes are yet to come. Humans have brought about a lot of change in the last 100 years, and there is no doubt that more change will come.
There is always more to learn about our past, and more to invent in our future!

They’re a small team who wants to make science look beautiful. Because it is beautiful.
