Geologic Time Scale - Geological Time Line - Geology.com Dividing Earth History into Time Intervals Geologists have divided Earth's history into a series of time intervals. These time intervals are not equal in length like the hours in a day. Instead the time intervals are variable in length. This is because geologic time is divided using significant events in the history of the Earth.

Peter Farey's Marlowe Page In their e-book Shakespeare Bites Back, written on behalf of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, Paul Edmondson and Stanley Wells called for the removal of the question mark against the year of Marlowe's death on his memorial window in Westminster Abbey's Poets' Corner. This was a demand they had already made in a letter to The Times newspaper, and which they repeated in their book Shakespeare Beyond Doubt. Nevertheless, at the moment, the question mark remains. Speaking at the window's dedication ceremony in 2002, the then President of the Marlowe Society, Colin Niven, explained that, by asking for the question mark to be included, the Society merely queried, not denied, the date of Marlowe's death. If it was doubtful then, later research has made it even more so.
Geologic and Biological Timeline of the Earth Astronomical and geological evidence indicates that the Universe is approximately 13,700 million years old, and our solar system is about 4,567 million years old. Earth's Moon formed 4,450 million years ago, just 50 million years after the Earth's formation. Because the composition of the rocks retrieved from the Moon by the Apollo missions is very similar to rocks from the Earth, it is thought that the Moon formed as a result of a collision between the young Earth and a Mars-sized body, sometimes called Theia, which accreted at a Lagrangian point 60° ahead or behind the Earth. A cataclysmic meteorite bombardment (the Late Heavy Bombardment) of the Moon and the Earth 3,900 million years ago is thought to have been caused by impacts of planetesimals which were originally beyond the Earth, but whose orbits were destabilized by the migration of Jupiter and Saturn during the formation of the solar system.
