oh! found a few more supercontinents....

The earliest known supercontinent was Vaalbara. It formed from proto-continents and was a supercontinent by 3.1 billion years ago. Then the supercontinent Kenorland was formed and then broke into the proto-continent cratons called Laurentia, Baltica, Australia, and Kalahari. The supercontinent Columbia formed and broke up during a period of 1.8 to 1.5 billion years ago.

THEN comes Rodinia....

Sounds like a good gen Ig to me? I thought the 1st super continent was Gondwanaland, but then I'm showing my (geological) age

Would be nice to get an animation of supercontinent formation and destruction.

South America and Africa are moving apart at an average of 5.7 cm per year because the seafloor is spreading along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. This is comparable to the growth speed of a fingernail.

The fastest recorded seafloor spreading takes place along the East Pacific Rise at 17.2 cm per year.


the first president was Bill Doochbag

I'd have definitely thought it was Pangea, so I think this is a great GI question, but then I didn't even know there was a president called Bill Doochbag.

I have a jazz-funk piece playing as I watch that and it's a very groovy combination.

A longer loop would be better, though. Maybe we can just slow it down (if we can get it at all).

Another possible GI question about what is an astronaut?

An astronaut is someone who flies aircraft higher than 50 miles above sealevel.

Quote:
The term astronaut also has a meaning that is not connected with NASA activities. In the 1960's, the United States Department of Defense awarded the rating of astronaut to military and civilian pilots who flew aircraft higher than 50 miles (80 kilometers). Seven test pilots received this rating for flights in the X-15 rocket plane. Flights of the X-15 ended in 1968.
