A large crack, stretching several kilometres, made a sudden appearance recently in south-western Kenya.

The tear, which continues to grow, caused part of the Nairobi-Narok highway to collapse and was accompanied by seismic activity in the area.
The Earth is an ever-changing planet, even though in some respects change might be almost unnoticeable to us. Plate tectonics is a good example of this. But every now and again something dramatic happens and leads to renewed questions about the African continent splitting in two.


multiple reports on this
proof again that Planet Earth is dynamic and changing

would be interesting to see how this played out. how long could they keep the parts bridged? how would this affect climate? would this be a tourist attraction?

Considering it's not supposed to happen for 50,000,000 years it's not something I worry about.

Looking at the picture it's not very wide, google cracks in the earth and they are everywhere. Scary though think if your house was on that said crack. Would insurance pick it up as it's an act of nature?

Why does CNN make a point at the start of the article to say that it's solely the views of the writers of said article? Is there something controversial about this?

Because some geologists attribute it to continental drift and others to erosion.

I thought about this. It made me wonder if the Grand Canyon will also create a divide.

It sure has a huge head start over this new crack in the Earth.

The Grand Canyon is due to erosion, not a rift valley.

I see. Yes, that is certainly scandalous!

I'm sure the two factions would gang fight if you locked them in a room together.
