History of the Earth

YouTube description:

The history of the Earth from its formation to present day, covering major events throughout its 4-billion-year history. Estimates of average temperature, atmospheric composition, and day length are given. The reconstruction is based off of the companion video (https://youtu.be/UgRHZ5jDPUU) with changes to the coastline.

Forgot to add this event, but the little boom is in the video.:
(Impacts 2023Ma) Vredefort impact - This impact is the largest confirmed crater on Earth at 300 km wide. It is found in South Africa.

Music from https://filmmusic.io
“Division”, “Ever Mindful”, “Soaring”, “Revival”, “Ossuary 6” by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com)

I've added subtitles for the purple-colored text. If you have trouble reading them, use that.
I've put them all on a Google doc as well: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1a49c9pXfeVMah7uwJbH_Q6JE0WGcL95bJHqjZtKHrjo/edit?usp=sharing

Other stuff:
But the day is 23hr 56m long!
That's true for a sidereal day (rotation with respect to background stars, i.e. exactly 360°) but I used the solar/synodic day instead as I feel that's more natural (rotation with respect to the Sun, i.e. sunrise to sunrise, about 361°).
