How were The 7 Continents Formed?

There is undoubtedly something unusual about humans. Our species currently numbers around 7 billion, whereas there are fewer than 300,000 remaining of our nearest living relatives, the chimpanzees. We have expanded across the planet to inhabit nearly all the available habitats, and have even now taken up permanent residence off world.

Around 300 million years ago there was only one landmass on the earth known as supercontinent- Pangea and the ocean cover was called as Panthalasa. Then around 200 million years ago the supercontinet started separating. Some of the factors were:

  1. i) The convection current inside of the earth which let to movement of he tectonic plates beneath.
  2. ii) Tidal force of the Sun and the Moon.
  3. iii) Earth’s Gravitational force which exert centrifugal and centripetal forces on objects.

The Pangea first divide into two landmasses: Laurasia (northern landmass) and Gondwanaland (southern landmass). These two further divided and sub-divided gradually through millions of years to form the picturesque of the world as we witness it today.
