Join Neil deGrasse Tyson on a walk through time

Watch ‘The Lost Worlds of Planet Earth’ in Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey this Sunday


350 million years ago Earth looked completely different, even star constellations have changed since then. It’s time to take a trip across the Cosmic Calendar, to discover the evolution of our world, and grasp how the autobiography of the Earth is written in its atoms, its oceans, its continents, and all living things.

Imagine a world where dragonflies were the size of eagles, and millipedes the size of alligators…This is all in our Earth’s past, and was due to an oxygen surplus. In the next episode of Cosmos cast your eyes on the death mask of a 3 million year old tree, learn about the cliffs which act as calendars of the past, and take a look at how our Earth might look in 250 million years, when geologists predict that the lands might once again be reunited.

This episode is one of the most fascinating yet! So make sure you tune into Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey ‘The Lost Worlds of Planet Earth’ on Sunday 11th May at 7pm on National Geographic Channel.NCOS7200
