Hello everyone, I am back with another thread, and this time I am back with an idea for a collection.

So far, I have 3 topics/areas that I collect, and was wondering, if it would be possible to build a collection that describes the general history of everything, in chronological order.

To figure out if this is possible, I wanted to ask: Do you have any stamps that depict any of the following things? and if so, please do share.

- The Big Bang
- Galaxy Formation
- The Milky Way
- Planet Formation
- Star Formation
- The Planets
- The Sun
- Earth
- The Primordial Soup
- Simple Prehistoric Bacteria
- Prehistoric Plants
- Dinosaurs
- Cave Men (homo sapien, homo erectus, etc)
- Fire
- Agriculture
- etc...

Thanks for any answers!

A broad area to collect, might be hard to focus... but you could have lots of fun in the presentation... I like it!

OK now need to go and see what I can come up with....

The planets should be easy enough, certainly dinosaurs, and the earth. I know that stamps have been issued which depict galaxies, though I don't know about galaxy formation.

One particular set I have always admired is the set issued by Mexico on the 1940'sdepictin astronomical objects including galaxies. If I recall, there are commems and air mails. Considering the printing options available at the time, I find them quite remarkable.

The first item on your list (Big Bang Theory) would certainly have to include this stamp:
