Episode Summary

Colliding Continents
All of the Earth's landmasses were once clumped together, forming one giant "supercontinent" known as Pangea. Slowly, it was torn apart, broken up into the modern day continents. Those same forces are still at work beneath the planet's surface, moving the continents and constantly reshaping our planet as they collide, buckle, and rise up to form new mountain ranges. Looking ahead hundreds of millions of years, the Earth will look nothing like the one we know today, the continents having reshaped the surface completely.moreless
