Rate of Expansion

We are currently putting together a show for The Glasgow International at the Arches on the small subject matter of Time. It is a rabbit hole of a puzzling subject that once you start down you end up with a sore head and saying wow quite a lot.

For example the above diagram shows the time that has passed so far in the universe as a blue circle with the theorised potential universe's future time shown in red. The period that life in any form has existed on our planet is so small as to be invisible at this scale.

That's a very nice simple way of showing something that's so hard to imagine. I think illustration is really important in science. You can't always depict ideas just through words or even in a photograph.
