Four Time/History Facts that Amazed Me

March 25, 2012

I wanted to share four interesting time related facts I read recently that made me wow. Gives you a perspective on differences in time.

1)   The first fact is probably more amazing to the generation X & Y as it makes you realize how much time has already past.

The amount of years that has passed between 1968 and 1990 is the same amount as the years that gone from 1990 to this year that I am writing this.

2)   We live closer to the construction of the Roman Colosseum time wise than the Romans did to the construction of the Great Pyramid

3)   We live closer to the time of Tyrannosaurus Rex than Tyrannosaurus Rex did to that of Stegosaurus

4)   Only 66 years passed between the Wright Brothers achieving first powered flight and the Apollo 11 landing on the moon.
