Notes From the formation of our universe to the present day, countless major events have changed the course of life on Earth. Big History brings together an incredible range of perspectives, using multiple disciplines including physics and sociology to bring us the story of 13.8 billion years of remarkable history. With a foreword by TED speaker Professor David Christian, Big History is a truly unique look at the history of the world. Aligned with the online Big History Project, supported by Bill Gates, Big History puts a wide-angle lens on history, and uses stunning visual timelines and special CGI reconstructions to show you history's greatest events like never before. Look back to our origins in the stars, and explore everything from the birth of the sun to modern technology, and what the future holds for humans.
