ChronoZoom is ‘Google Earth’ for time.
ChronoZoom is a zoomable timeline the universe’s existence, a joint project between Microsoft Research, the University of California, Berkeley, and Moscow State University in Russia.
The navigation needs a some smoothing out and I’m not quite sure how the information has been categorised. There is a shed load of information embedded in the ChronoZoom but a problem is that some things happen on such a tiny time-scale that there is a danger that you would never find them, unless they are labelled on the timeline. 
Wait for the timeline labels to appear and click on “Threshold 8: Origins of Modern World” to see how brief humanity’s existence is. Creationists look away.
