This is a neat site where you can explore various historical timelines. From the universe, to the earth to even the ancient Greeks. The website is a little tricky to figure out, but once you do, it's quite powerful.

ChronoZoom is an open source community project owned by the Outercurve Foundation and dedicated to visualizing the history of everything. ChronoZoom bridges the gap between the humanities and sciences using a notion of “Big History” to easily understand all this information. This project has been funded and supported by Microsoft Research Connections in collaboration with University California at Berkeley, Moscow State University and University of Washington Information School (iSchool), and The Center for Web and Data Science (WDS) departments.

500 km across, vesta is a rock that orbits around mars.
... What?

Where can I find the ancient Greeks?
Edit: Oh, got it. Hard to find without the links on the top.

History of science stops 1970 :D.
