4.6 billion years of Earth's history in 4.6 km
This journey radically transforms our understanding of the history of our planet and offers new perspectives
On this journey, each step will be equivalent to 1 million years. In the process, a new vision of our common history will emerge, which will allow the development of new perspectives. We will then be able to imagine sustainable solutions to the challenges and crises of our time
This day will be like no other.
We'll walk along the history of the earth, starting from the day it was formed. We'll see the moment the moon became our satellite, much closer - and bigger - then today, we'll witness the arrival of water, the birth of oceans, the first continent(s), the start of life, and a few mass extinctions such as the one of the Dinausors. We'll see the days get longer, the sun's radiaton change, and what happened more recently: the arrival of hominids, the formation of the alps, the ice ages and finally the start of the neolithic period to end with what is proposed to be the "anthropocene".
