Namaste friends! Welcome to another post of the “history of earth” series. Drum rolls for the new period of an entirely new era. If Paleozoic was fun for you I bet Mesozoic will be enthralling. We are entering the era of reptiles and the first post is on the Triassic period- the gateway for reptilian heaven. Mesozoic had such a high reptilian diversity and our beloved dinosaurs that it is named the era of reptiles preceding the Cenozoic era the mammalian time. There is so much to write and read about the Mesozoic era let alone dinosaurs. …


Nǐ hǎo friends. Welcome to another post of the scientific revelation’s “History of the earth series”. In this post, we will discuss the Permian world and how life survived in the harsh conditions of the supercontinent. Although all the modern countries were united in the Permian period it wasn’t very picnic-like on Pangea. Let me explain what it was like to live on a vast joined land.

Firstly, Pangea was huge so the moisture from oceans couldn’t travel to the islands. In the simplest sense, the inside of continents was desert. A major chunk of Pangea, almost 60%, was practically…


Welcome to another post of “the history of earth” series. Carboniferous rainforest collapse and Pangaea have one thing in common. Firstly, these both were history-defining movements in earth’s past. Moreover, they both happened due to plate tectonics. Folks if you haven’t already read my posts on plate tectonics go give them a try. Plate tectonics- past and present, plate tectonics- a unique shape-shifting and plate tectonics- continental drift will give you a better subject on our star culprit.

This title is enough to make the blog post interesting. We have finally come this far where we can see the aggregation…


Hallo, friends. Welcome to another post of the “History of earth” series. In the previous post The Silurian period- Recovery 1.0, we had talked about the position of continents, geology, environment, and general trends in life forms. This post will be an extension of previous topics and we will see other aspects of the Silurian period. The more we move towards the present the natural history will get messier and vast. The past was astonishing with The formation of the earth, The oxidation event, snowball earth, the Ediacaran biota, The Ordovician period, and the Cambrian explosion. There is so much…


Namaste friends. Welcome to another chapter of the “History of Earth” series, The Silurian period — Recovery 1.0. We are in the third period of the Palaeozoic era and I know still things are a lot unfamiliar. We haven’t seen any known and common animals or plants. This can make you realize that our normal originated very late in the geological timescale. The Silurian period started 443.7 million years ago and ended 416 million years ago. Now let’s set the stage for the Silurian period. It started when the late Ordovician ice was melting off south America and Africa. However…


Holla friends welcome to another post of The scientific Revelation where we will jump right into the Ordovician period-A prequel in time. You must be thinking we have discussed Ordovician extinction in the previous post so why discuss the period in general. I haven’t included a lot in the extinction episode which can be useful to understand our journey. In this post of “The History of Earth,” series we will learn about Ordovician as a whole. Take it as when we have to increase the speed of our bike it moves a little backward before speeding ahead. …


Since Cambrian times earth had seen a diversity like never before but what about before Cambrian? If we go back in time, earth formed around 4.5 billion years ago. First Eon, Hadean has known for magma floor, constant volcanic eruption, and regular comet bombardment. Then comes the archaeon eon marked with first slid basalt floor and water. Around 4 billion years ago first life formed in the carbon-rich greenhouse planet. For most of the part of earth’s history, our planet was dominated by microscopic life. The first fossil evidence of life came from fossil rocks dating back to 3.5 billion…


Ola! Friends. Welcome for another adventure, another chapter The Ediacaran Biota- is it a thing? on “History of the earth” series. Previously we went through a rather nasty and almost lost every hope for life. However, life lives on. Despite snow-covered earth where miles of thick ice had restricted the penetration of sunlight, life had survived. Hanging around volcanoes and slush of equator some microorganism had lived on to handover their legacy. After the Cryogenian period started the new exciting chapter on earth but it was a little different from the previous one.

The Ediacaran period had a unique element…


After three detailed and obsessive episodes on Plate tectonics, we are ready to move towards another chapter and mind blogging event in the History of the earth. The Cryogenian glaciations are also known by the catchy name snowball earth is currently holding the title of the most severe ice ages on the earth.

Annyeong haseyo friends. Welcome to another post of the “History of Earth” series. The previous three posts were based on Plate tectonics including , how plate tectonics had shaped our planet and its effect on natural disasters.

Cryogenian glaciation had sprouted from the most static time of…


Hello, folks. You must be thinking why am I writing so many blog posts on plate tectonics. The truth is when I started to research more around this topic it had blown my mind. I can’t even emphasize the fact that how much plate tectonics had influenced everything around us. It is literally the deal for biology as we know and ecosystems as we see. The majestic structure we see around had resulted from tectonic movements and it is mind-blowing. It is the reason we are here, here is here and everything on here is here. In this blog post…
