MSU Launched Project on the History of Humanity

The Lomonosov Moscow State University, Microsoft and the University of California in Berkeley have launched an interesting scientific project ChronoZoom. It is a visualized on-line encyclopedia on the history of humanity, the origin of the universe and the development of life on Earth.

      ChronoZoom covers the interval of 13.7 billion years - from the "Big Bang" to the present. By moving the slider at the top of the page, users can travel through time and compare various events. Using a zoom tool, one can get a closer look at any era and to see what was happening at this time on Earth.

      The purpose of the founders is to show the entire history of humanity, not divided into separate events. On this website, one can find some lectures, see the illustrations and read the bibliography on certain topic.

      ChronoZoom is written in HTML5. You need the latest version of the browser - Internet Explorer (at least version 9), Firefox 7, Safari or Chrome 5 14.

      Visit ChronoZoom here.
