Our global landscape, separated by oceans as we know it today, wasn't always so. Distinct continents are a more recent phenomenon, because way back when the Earth's landmass belonged to one big supercontinent called Pangaea (or Pangea). You might vaguely remember something about it from geography class, but, as a refresher, Pangaea broke up around 175 million years ago, in the Middle Jurassic period. What happened? Tectonic activity, i.e. the Earth's plates moving and shifting to form the world's oceans. But as our climate changes and plate movement picks up, could we be in danger of the reverse occurring, with the disappearance of the Atlantic Ocean a possibility?
