Earth as seen from space 500 million years ago | Space | EarthSky


Scientists have blended NASA images with geography and climate reconstructions to create an animation of the Earth as it would have appeared from space 500 million years ago. This animation, released on April 22, 2011 to celebrate Earth Day, is part of the Visible Paleo-Earth (VPE) project of Planetary Habitability Laboratory (PHL) at the University of Puerto Rico. It’s fun to compare the Earth of 500 million years ago with today’s Earth by clicking “play” on the two videos below simultaneously.
