Latest Pangaea Stories
Break-up of the supercontinent Gondwana about 130 Million years ago could have lead to a completely different shape of the African and South American continent with an ocean south of today's Sahara desert, as geoscientists from the University of Sydney and the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences have shown through the use of sophisticated plate tectonic and three-dimensional numerical modelling.
Pangea, a single supercontinent, dominated the Earth during the Permian era with animal and plant life dispersed broadly across the land. This disbursement is documented by identical fossil species found on multiple modern continents.
The activation of a passive plate boundary in the Atlantic Ocean could ultimately result in continental Europe moving closer to the US, according to new research appearing in the journal Geology.
A team of experts from Brazil and Japan say they have discovered their version of Atlantis, or at least an ancient piece of granite that was part of a continent that disappeared nearly a hundred million years ago when Africa and South America separated.

Researchers are discovering strong evidence that parts of what are now Texas and Antarctica were connected.
More than 200 million years ago, mammals and reptiles lived in their own separate worlds on the supercontinent Pangaea, despite little geographical incentive to do so.
