A by-product of Big Data, Big History is the study of time going all the way back to the Big Bang. Using a scale that begins 13.7 billion years ago, ChronoZoom breaks up history by thresholds that represent moments in time. Treshhold 1, the Big Bang, is detailed with documents, images, and videos, known as artifacts, as well as a bibliography so the source of that information can be traced. Customizable narrations are especially useful add-ons for those in education or academia, allowing professors to provide their own interpretation of a window in time.
