Pacing Earth's history using galactic orbits. Earth has circled the galaxy 18 times. The dinosaurs died out 2/5's of an orbit ago. Fish began almost 2 orbits ago. Multicellular life, about 4. This way of describing time is perhaps complimentary to the usual n million years ago.

Either notable objects, merely ordered: universe, galaxy, solar system, sun, planets, mountain, you, insects, microbes, proteins, molecules. or labeling even magnitude steps (this is mass, with steps of 1010 kg): universe, galaxy, sun, moon, mountain, you, tiny bug, piece of cell, atom, light. or clumped in magnitude steps: universe moon, sun, galaxy knat, you, mountain piece of cell, atom, light or... energy density surface area density (sorbent) single massergy page? Doables: Find a Geological Timescale link to replace the one which broke. Clean up. Overhaul. History: 2003-Feb-03 Repaired links - 3 fixed, 1 left (cacr), 1 flagged, 2 added. 2001-Aug-12 Checked links, added PoT links, slightly rearranged page. 1998.Aug.24 And removed one which the author had not intended to make public. 1998.Aug.21 Added a few links. 1998.Aug.05 Added History, Doables, and links to Resources and CosmicView. 1997.summer Created.
