Sioux Falls Scientists recommends the following movies that describe the history of the Earth. Starting with our Sun and moving on to the coalescing of Earth from the surrounding rotating cloud of dust and rocks. We following the resultant mass of molten rock through cooling, rain, ice, early life, oxygenation, giant continents, giant oceans, plate tectonics, ocean life, life on land, dinosaurs, and early mankind.

The movies are available from Amazon.com but you are free to obtain them from many other sources. Amazon offers them on their website along with many alternate sources, often less expensive. Many are probably also available on NetFlix.com and elsewhere for on-line viewing. You are free to choose whatever source you please.

‘A Most Improbable Journey’ offers scientific take on human history
Book zooms through key cosmic, geologic and biological events that shaped past. A new book explores how cosmic and geologic events—such as the particular details of the solar system’s formation—have shaped human history. Most people do not marvel much at sand. We may enjoy how it feels under our bare feet, or get annoyed when someone tracks it into the house. But few of us see those quartz grains the way geologist Walter Alvarez does—as the product of 4.5 billion years of improbable cosmic and geologic events that defined the course of human history. Sandy beaches exist because silicon—a relatively rare element in the solar system—happened to become concentrated on Earth during the solar system’s early days, Alvarez, of the University of California, Berkeley, writes in A Most Improbable Journey. While powerful solar particles swept lighter, gaseous elements toward the outer planets, more massive, mineral-forming elements such as silicon, magnesium and iron were left behind for Earth. Later on, in the molten crucibles between Earth’s colliding tectonic plates, these elements formed the raw materials for pivotal human inventions, including stone tools, glass and computer chips.
