This is the story of Earth, from its beginnings in a cloud of stardust, 4.6 billion years ago.

A trek through time from the first oceans and the formation of the moon, to finding the “just right” balance of oxygen in the atmosphere. 

Tumble back to the present at 100 million years a minute, in a story shared through words, gestures and music.
