How do you best present history that spans billions of years? That was the challenge taken on by MSR recently with Chronozoom. The resulting site presents a multimedia timeline using DeepZoom through HTML5 to explore significant events across a variety of curated collections from the best professors and presenters around the world. I stopped by Rane Johnson's office at MSR to talk about her project, the challenges of DeepZooming 2 billion years per second in HTML, as well as some of the work she is doing to engage with students to get them excited about science and technology.
