570 millions years of evolution. That’s a lot of ground to cover. And it could be like watching paint dry. But not when it flies by in 60 seconds, with a groovy soundtrack by I-Konic. First come the arthropods. Next some friendly fish, all followed by land plants, flying insects, amphibians, and reptiles. Way down the line, at the very end, the first humans arrive on the scene. But don’t blink, you might miss it.
To get a little more detail on how this all happened, I’d suggest watching Carl Sagan explain evolution in a classic 8-minute animation.
