PBS has a great documentary on how earth evolved from rocks to something that could support (and apparently create) life.

Highly recommended.

Adding later: It was called: Ancient Earth: Birth of the Sky. In NOVA program.

AND this looks like a link, though we watched via PBS: https://youtu.be/pmbUv0rAeeg?si=6rA4oiPbGF3LTmRt

It feels as if I'm looking at/through a glass marble. It's almost transparent - opaque, but not quite solid. Weird.

This is /fantastic/. Thank you for posting this, which I bookmarked. The movement and the framing make it look 3D, with the whiter areas standing slightly above the mare. To my eyes, anyway. Thank you.

Woah! (Not a very scientific expression, I know)

How about, awesome!

To get a 3D effect, place a dark filter in front of you right eye.

@tchambers You weren’t meant to see the back! No one was meant to see the back. For 2000 years no one knew what the far side looked like, oh my God we’re all going to die!
