Deep Time Walk
By Deep Time Walk C.I.C.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Deep Time Walk is a 4.6km interactive audio experience telling a big history of the Earth. This unfolding takes you from 4,600,000,000 years ago (4,600 Million Years Ago) to the present day, with each metre walked representing 1 million years.
- Walk through time as the pedometer tracks how far and fast you walk, adjusting the audio experience accordingly.
- Learn key concepts about Earth's formation and big history using the latest geoscience and a time-contextual glossary.
- Experience Deep Time and gain perspective of the immense age of Earth as you walk across geological time.
- Discover when humans evolved and your place within Deep Time.
- A Mobility Assist Mode is available for those unable to walk.
During the dramatised walk you learn how our planet evolved over this vast span of geological time, including the accretion of the Earth from a disc of rocky debris, the formation of the oceans and atmosphere, the appearance of first life - bacteria, then the first nucleated cells, multicellular organisms and finally us.
The experience combines science with humanities to help you understand our common evolutionary history with all life, how very ancient our planet is and the geological impact of humanity. We hope it gives a sense of awe and wonder for our beautiful home and inspires care and reverence.
