How Do Humans Fit Into the 4.5 Billion Years of Life on Earth? (Video)

According to estimates, life has been present on the Earth for 4.5 billion years. That is a span of time that is incredibly hard for us, as humans, to wrap our heads around. Simply, it's a period that extends beyond—well beyond—our experience as a species. Even the earliest hominids didn't even come close to seeing a live dinosaur and in terms of the total timeframe of life on the planet, even dinosaurs were relatively recent developments. To make this history a bit more manageable, AsapScience compressed it into a timeframe everyone understands: A single 24 hour day. Plus, there's a fun animation to help explain it all. So, just how much of that 24 hour day does all of human existence fill?
