I have to find out what is Big History. And write a paragraph about what it is and how people interact about it.

I learned that Big History is  an emerging academic discipline which examines history from the Big Bang to the present. People look at big history as the most important thing in history. Sometime big history depends on the past. Like history it means the study of past events, particularly in human affairs, or the whole series of past events connected with someone or something.

The Big Bang

In this lesson I have to find out, how views of the Universe have changed over time and I have to explain my answer. Views of the Universe have changed over time by  the earth was thought to be a circle rather than an oval.
Olden days were full of superstitions and everything was thought like that. Science has changed everything. A long time ago, Earth was thought to be flat - it's round. Earth was thought to be the center of the Universe - it's not.

The Stars Light Up

In this lesson I have find out How do stars form. Star form by relatively dense concentrations of interstellar gas and dust known as molecular clouds. I also have to find what happens in the life of a star and explain what happens when a star dies. The thing that happen in the life of a star is most stars on the Main Sequence will create their energy by the process of hydrogen fusion. And what happen when a star is The core finally cools into a white dwarf, then a black dwarf. This is what happens when a normal-sized star dies. If a really huge star dies, it has so much mass that after the helium is used up, it still has enough carbon to fuse it into heavy elements like iron.

In this lesson I have to find why planets are more complex than stars. Planets are more complex than star because the planets are more known then the stars. It's more to learn about for planets than it is for the stars. Like it's more history for planets. For the star you can only know how they are formed  and basically how may stars there are. I also have to find out how the Earth and its atmosphere developed and changed over time. The earth and it's atmosphere developed and changed over time loss of the hydrogen, helium and other hydrogen-containing gases from early Earth due to the Sun's radiation, primitive Earth was devoid of an atmosphere. The first atmosphere was formed by outgassing of gases trapped in the interior of the early Earth, which still goes on today in volcanoes.

In this lesson I have too find ,How are we still evolving? We are still evolving because our present scientific understanding of Earth's evolution is far from complete and may be subject to change in even its essential fundamentals.Our actual observations of material reality will probably hold up, but they will certainly be augmented in quantity, accuracy and precision. And this is how we are still evolving.

In this lesson I have to find  What makes humans different from other species? Something that makes species different  from other humans is with  species they can't  appreciate, create and express humor. Not only does it require creativity, but humor also requires the ability to detach oneself from one’s surroundings to see the odd, surreal or ironic. Something that makes humans different from other species is that species can live for a long time without eating, they can weight how ever much they won't without being called fat cause they humans they should be able to eat.

In this lesson I have to learn Was farming an improvement over foraging? No because it took a long time to find the food and materials needed to feed the village. Foragers often have to walk long distances to get everything they need. Throughout the year, they have moved from place to place as they used resources or to find follow the seasons. It is not a easy life.

In this lesson I have to find  what extent has the Modern Revolution been a positive or a negative force?  The Modern Revolution been a positive force because the Industrial Revolution brought was a greater economic benefit for the country to be operating at such efficiencies, and it created new technological changes and improvements in the ares of commercialization, mechanization, and the assembly line. And  been a negative force because many would argue that the environmental crisis that we are facing today had its roots in the Industrial Revolution that spawned so much contamination, pollution and damage to the environment.

In this lesson I have to find  What’s the next threshold? The next threshold tells you how does knowing so much about the past change the way you think about the future. These may be the most important big history asks. Big History tells you the story of the Universe from the big band to the presents.It would be impossible for any history  course to cover everything related to the subject matter. Big History is the best thing to learn.
