The Origin and Evolution of Earth
From the Big Bang to the Future of Human ExistenceBook plus DVD - 2013
Examines Earth's origin from simple atoms that were created in the big bang, transformed into heavy elements in stellar explosions, then forged into a planet inside the nebula that gave birth to the solar system. Like many other planets, Earth went through phases of melting, volcanism, and bombardment by asteroids. But only on Earth did events lead to a flourishing biosphere--life. And once life was established, it drove the evolution of our planet in startling new directions.
