As we know it, time began with the Big Bang. Counting the years, this is the 13,810,000,000th year of the universe. This daily planner includes a timeline in which the entire lifetime of the universe is compressed into a single calendar year. One year represents 13,8 billion years, each month is a little over 1 billion years, each day nearly 38 million years. January 1st begins with the Big Bang; all of our human history occurs in the last few seconds before midnight on December 31st.
