THE BEGINNING HIGH RES - John Wawrzonek

TIMELINE OF THE UNIVERSE


For Contemplation (not to scale)

AN IMPORTANT GOAL FOR ME is to give the information that conveys a litte bit of the astronomical awesomeness of the universe and where the earth came from. Especiallly the beginning of time with the smallest thing there can be (far tinier than an atom) to the largest thing there is (the Universe).

One interesting note: after starting so small there was a tiny period of time called "inflation" (second item in the right-hand column of the illustration) during which the universe expanded to the size of a grapefruit!

After that things moved a bit more slowly. Today is 13.82 billion light years after the beginning.
