"’Planet Earth has an estimated age of 4,5 billion years,’ Jeremiah P. Ostricker, a Senior Research Scholar at Princeton University tells Popular Mechanics. ‘Homo Sapiens has been around for at most 450,000 years, that is 1/10,000 the age of the planet. And then, more recently, we spread over the whole globe in 1/100,000 of the age of the planet.’" Popular Mechanics
