BBC: What’s Happened Since You Were Born?

BBC’s Your Life on Earth:

Find out how, since the date of your birth, your life has progressed; including how many times your heart has beaten, and how far you have travelled through space.

Investigate how the world around you has changed since you’ve been alive; from the amount the sea has risen, and the tectonic plates have moved, to the number of earthquakes and volcanoes that have erupted.

This should be in every classroom. Enter in your date of birth, gender and height and see what has been happening on Earth since you’ve been born.

Since I’ve been born there have been eighty-two solar eclipses, one-hundred and eighty-five volcanic eruptions, and my heart has beaten over a billion times.
