Stephen Hawking Timeline

Stephen Hawking timeline

Stephen Hawking, the world-renowned theoretical physicist and author who came to symbolize the triumph of mind over matter, died yesterday morning at his home in Cambridge. The scientist was considered a leading voice in physics and cosmology, not only due to his extensive work on the nature of the universe, but also for his efforts – and success – in popularizing science around the world. To honor one of the most brilliant minds of our times, we have created a timeline of Hawking’s life and work.

The Stephen Hawking Timeline illustrates important events and achievements in the life of the physicist, including some of his major publications. His renowned book, A Brief History of Time, was written to help “non-scientists” get a wider understanding of physics and our universe. As Hawking himself noted in the book’s acknowledgments, he had been warned that, for each equation included in the text, his readership would be halved. Therefore – with some difficulty - the author dropped all equations but one: E = mc2. When published in 1988, A Brief History of Time quickly rose to the top of bestseller lists and remained there for months.

Pink Floyd Timeline

Dr Seuss timeline

This Saturday marked two important events in the history of psychedelic rock band Pink Floyd. First of all, 51 years ago on March 10, the band launched their debut single, Arnold Layne, which peaked at number 20 in the UK despite having been banned by multiple radio stations. Moreover, according to Pink Floyd’s official website, March 10 (1973) is also the day the iconic album The Dark Side of the Moon was released, gaining the band their first No.1 chart placing and remaining on the chart for 741 consecutive weeks.

To wish Pink Floyd a happy anniversary for both occasions, let’s take a look back at their internationally-acclaimed work.

The Pink Floyd Timeline provides a chronological overview of the band’s major album releases, including studio and live albums as well as a few compilations. Although there seems to be some dispute regarding the exact release date of The Dark Side of the Moon, what is certain is that it was recorded at Abbey Road Studios, where the Beatles made most of their recordings. In fact, at the end of Eclipse, the final song on Pink Floyd’s best-selling album, a faintly audible orchestral section of the Beatles’ Ticket to Ride can be heard. It is believed that this was unintentional and that the Beatles song was playing in the background when Eclipse’s closing snippet was recorded.

Dr. Seuss Timeline

Dr Seuss timeline

Today marks the 114th birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as the beloved Dr. Seuss. Even decades after the publication of his first book, the whimsical writer and illustrator is still capturing the imagination of children – and adults – worldwide with his wacky themes, playful rhymes, and made-up words and creatures. To celebrate the man behind besties like the Grinch, the Sneetches, and the Lorax, let’s take a brief look at his life and work.

The Dr. Seuss Timeline illustrates some of the major events and achievements in the life of the author, as well as a few of his most popular books, such as The Cat in the Hat or Green Eggs and Ham. While many have heard the interesting stories behind his major works, how the penname “Dr. Seuss” was born might not be that common-knowledge.

It all started at Dartmouth, where Theodor (Ted) Geisel wrote for the university’s humor magazine and even rose to the rank of chief editor. That changed abruptly, though, when he was caught drinking gin in his dorm with a few friends. As punishment for violating Prohibition, Seuss was barred from writing for the magazine and stripped of his editorship too. To continue publishing, he hid behind a variety of pseudonyms, such as T. Seuss, D.G. Rosetti, or simply Seuss. Several other monikers appeared over the years, including the pompous “Dr. Theophrastus Seuss,” which the writer later shortened to the penname we know today.

Youtube History Timeline

Youtube History Timeline

Today, everyone’s go-to video-sharing site – and the source of endless procrastination for many of us - is celebrating its 13th birthday. Set up in 2005 by three former PayPal employees and originally intended as a dating service, YouTube has grown to be the second most visited website in the world after Google, now boasting over 15 billion visitors per month. To wish the giant video website a happy birthday, we have put together a timeline of memorable moments throughout its history.

The YouTube Timeline illustrates the site’s evolution since its inception to present day. The graphic runs through the company’s major achievements and feature releases, including a few interesting milestones such as the first video uploaded or the first known instance of Rickrolling.

Considering the type of broadcasts that are regularly going viral on YouTube, one might think the first video ever posted on the website must have been something insane. Well, it’s actually a very short clip of co-founder Jawed Karim standing near some elephants at the zoo and describing their “really, really long trunks.” The video is appropriately titled “Me at the Zoo” and has since been viewed more than 45 million times.

The Youtube chronology was created with Office Timeline, a flexible PowerPoint add-in that enables users to quickly generate timelines, Gantt charts and other similar visuals for business or academic presentations. To update the graphic or build new ones effortlessly, we recommend Office Timeline Plus Edition.

Facebook History Timeline

Facebook History Timeline

On February 4, 2004, Mark Zuckerberg launched a social website called “The Facebook” from his dorm room at Harvard. Soon, what started as a private network for college students became a worldwide phenomenon, everyone from teens to grandmothers using it to catch up with friends and get their news. As Facebook is turning 14 this Sunday, here’s a look back at some of the milestones that helped shape the social media behemoth we know today.

The Facebook History Timeline illustrates important events, achievements, and releases in the history of the social networking platform, from the day the service was launched to its 14-year anniversary.

Released in February 2009, the “Like” button is probably one of the simplest Facebook features, but it’s come to be the one that defines it. This makes it a little surprising that Zuckerberg kept giving it a thumbs down when the concept was proposed, determining the team to consider it a “cursed project.” The idea of an approval button first came to life in 2007 under the form of the “Awesome” button, but it took almost two years until it was finally launched, as the CEO was worried it will overshadow the Comment and Share features.

The Facebook chronology was built with Office Timeline, a fast and intuitive tool designed to help users create eye-catching Gantt charts and timelines effortlessly. The image is free to modify and share and can be edited or customized further with the Plus version of the plug-in.
