Age of the Earth

Age of the Earth (4.54 billion y)



If Age of the Earth (4.54 billion y) was a standard unit ...

  • Time since the start of the formation of the Solar System (4.6 billion y)...more would be about as big as Age of the Earth
  • Galactic Year (period of rotation of the Milky Way galaxy) (225 million y)...more would be 1/20 of Age of the Earth
  • Time since the end of the Paleogene geologic period (23 million y)...more would be 1/200 of Age of the Earth
