Billions of years of Earth evolution revealed in a short video

(ORDO NEWS) — David A. Roberts has created a special simulation that perfectly demonstrates the evolution of our planet. The famous programmer and part-time artist showed a flaming protoplanet, which as a result turned into the Earth that we see today. This work was posted on Roberts’ blog.

Reported by the Daily Mail.

It all started about 4.5 billion years ago. Then the temperature of the Earth was incredibly high, because it was just a protoplanet with an unstable crust.

On the surface, a huge number of volcanoes erupted all the time, and the Earth itself was attacked without stopping by asteroids. A similar situation is currently observed on another planet in the solar system – Venus.

Then tectonic plates began to form gradually, continents and oceans appeared. Their formation began about 3.8 billion years ago.

The supercontinent Pangea existed about 300 million years ago, and then it was divided into parts. Further evolution became slower. You can see how day and night appeared on Earth due to the fact that the surface practically stopped moving.

At the very end, light appears throughout the planet, arising from the activities of mankind, but as a result, it goes out. This is how the end of the planet’s existence, according to Roberts, could be if people do not stop destroying the Earth, its resources and the environment.
