Curious about the history of our planet, but quite busy today? Internet artists melodysheep have the solution. They've edited together various pieces of footage and some lovely music to create a visualisation of the entire history of our planet in under two minutes.

It's like 2001: A Space Odyssey meets that trippy scene from Terence Malik's A Tree of Life with a bit of David Attenborough's The Blue Planet documentary at the beginning.
