Timeline of Earth’s formation

For an upcoming paper I’m working on with my colleague Elisa Quintana I needed to make a illustrative diagram. I’ve never put a figure in a paper that isn’t a plot using data. I tried using a free trial of Omnigraffle. It seems to have come out reasonably well.


This is my first theory paper. After 70 or so observational papers I figured it was about time I tried something different. However, we are performing simulations so the data analysis is very similar to observational work – we model simulated results rather than observations.
