I found this picture to be A) revealing and B) mind blowing. I mean... You just have to see it.

Man I would do anything to go to space.



Do you see how the mountain range is forming on the left side? Here you can clearly see the direction the land mass has been moving in. It looks like with time the continent will be much, much larger.

This picture seems to confirm continental drift. I however still do no believe in Pangea.

Nonetheless... This picture is amazing.

Does anyone have any other possible theories about why it's moving?

Is it a photograph or an artistic rendering?

N/M, found the answer...

Anton Balazh's Portfolio

Awesome work.

Continental drift is an obsolete paradigm, replaced by plate tectonics.

It is a very nice image though even though it is not an actual image. It is artwork from this guy:

Gorgeous, we've been blessed with a beautiful home. It's a molten world. Wonder what the plates moving would like with a different perspective of time. Probably very violent.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but this is an artistic CGI rendering, although he did use lots of real photographic data for it.

For real photos of Earth from the ISS, check out this page: eol.jsc.nasa.gov...
It gives a stream of the latest ISS photos, but you can also use the search function to find thousands more photos.

I especially like this one of the Mauna Kea volcano and the observatory: eol.jsc.nasa.gov...

And here are some colourful salt evaporation pans in Africa: eol.jsc.nasa.gov...

A volcanic island in the southern Indian Ocean: eol.jsc.nasa.gov...

Here's a link (geomaps.wr.usgs.gov...)

The diagram shows how different segments of the crust were formed from different geological times and then tilted, folded, fractured and dislocated:

geomaps.wr.usgs.gov...

All those sedimentary layers would once have been layered horizontally.

Here's a reconstruction of the density of the Earth's interior using the echoes from an Earthquake:

Real or not the pics are pretty cool...

I don't want a t-shirt. I want to go into space...

It can't be a real photograph (at least not a single photograph). The dead-giveaway is the fact that there is no weather. Not a single storm or even a cloud is visible over the entire South American continent. It is a magnificent image none-the-less.
