    (5 BYA) Earth's Geological Description 5 BYA
    Solar system began to form . Solar system was a swriling mass of gas.
  • (4.6 BYA) Earths Geological Description in 4.6 BYA

    (4.6 BYA) Earths Geological Description in 4.6 BYA
    Earth grew larger as gravity pulled in more debris. Collisions between earth and space debris also released a great deal of thermal energy.

    (2.2 BYA) Earth's Geological Appearance
    Earth probably appeared much as it does today.
  • (2 BYA) Earth's Geological Appearance

    (2 BYA)  Earth's Geological Appearance
    O2 levels reached today's levels.
  • (Between 2 BYA-1.5 BYA) Earth's Description of Life

    (Between 2 BYA-1.5 BYA) Earth's Description of Life
    Endo- Symbosis is formed in mitochondria.
  • (1 BYA) Earths Geological Appearance

    (1 BYA) Earths Geological Appearance
    Ozone (O3) formed - protected organisms from harmful UV rays so they could exist on land.
  • (1626-1697) Redi's Experiment

    (1626-1697) Redi's Experiment
    Fransico Redi was one of the first to disprove spontaneous generation. He was an Italian doctor who proved maggots came from flies.
  • (1729-1799) Spallanzani's Experiment

    (1729-1799) Spallanzani's Experiment
    Experimented with broth and microorganisms in both a sealed and open flask.
  • (1822- 1895) Pasteur's Experiment

    (1822- 1895) Pasteur's Experiment
    Used a revised version of Spallanzani's design to support microorganisms are carried in the air and that they do not arise by spontatneous generation. He used a curved neck flask to show that the mircoorganisms were coming from the air and could not travel into the flask .
  • (1894-1980) Oparin's Hypothesis

    (1894-1980) Oparin's Hypothesis
    Oparin's thought that the early atmosphere contained ammonia, hyydrogen gases, water vapor, and compunds that were made of hydrogen and carbon such as methane. At high temperatures these gases may have formed simple organic compunds . When earth cooled and water vapor formed lakes and seas simple compounds would have collected in the water. Overtime they entered complex chemical reactions fueled by energy from lightening and ultraviolent radiation.
  • (1665) Hookes Invention of the Microscope

    (1665) Hookes Invention of the Microscope
    First microscope invented. Hooke exaxmined pieces of cork to look at there cells.

    Thomas Cech's main research area is that of the process of transcription in the nucleus of cells.
  • Urey (1893-1981) and Miller (1930-)

    Urey (1893-1981) and Miller (1930-)
    The Miller and Urey experiment was an experiment that simulated hypothetical conditions thought at the time to be present on the early Earth, and tested for the occurrence of chemical origins of life.
