Cosmic Walk

Cosmic Walk takes hard-to-imagine times and distances and maps them onto long walks.

It features Life on Earth, which compresses the history of life—starting with the formation of the solar system, over 4.6 billion years ago—into a 4-kilometre walk, sending notifications along the way about significant events.

The full version will be released in the summer of 2023, and will include over 20 walks, which trace out the entire tree of life, and explore the history and scale of the universe.

In the meantime, you can download a beta version which features a draft of Life on Earth, and The Planets, a 1-kilometre walk that takes you from the Sun to Neptune, a distance of nearly 4.5 billion kilometres.

We're working with a number of scientists, writers and designers to build out this project. If you're interested in helping out, send us an email :)
