Hubble time tunnel

This clip takes an illustrative look at the Universe's past, starting when it was only half a billion years old. This far back in time, our Milky Way may have just formed. However, the Earth only made an appearance just under 8.5 billion years later.

The entire history of the Earth has taken place over just a third of the Universe's lifetime – from the Earth's formation, to the emergence of dinosaurs, early life, and humans – to the present day, where astronomers use Hubble to view some of the Universe's earliest inhabitants and explore our origins.
