HInt: The universe is about 14 billion years old. To place something correctly on the calendar first find out how many years ago it occurred, then divide by 14 billion. That tells you the fraction of the universe’s existance from now back to the particular date. For instance, if something happened 10 billion years ago, it happened 10 billion/14 billion or .714 of the universe existance. On the one year calendar this event then occurred .714 yr back from the present (assuming December 31 is the present). Use 365 days per year to figure out how far back this would be in days, then count backwards from December 31.
