Scientists have discovered a mysterious Antarctic continent



  Ученые обнаружили под Антарктидой загадочные древние континенты

The European Space Agency announced the result. There were remnants of the continents for tens of millions of years under the Antarctic.

These facts become known after longer work for the European space satellite GOCE. He understood his data and his technological parameters that enable the creation of three-dimensional maps of the Earth's lithosphere (it consists of the crust and the molten mantle).

The remains of Gondwanas were discovered under the Antarctic.

Scientists said, "In the East Antarctic we have seen a 'mosaic' of geological features. The map showed the fundamental difference between the crust of the Antarctic and other continents. It is believed that Antarctica was part of another continent 1

60 million years ago. It was the supercontinent Gondwana that began to break down 130 million years ago. Between Australia and the Antarctic, the relationship remained 55 million years ago. The rocky zones are remnants of the Gondwana continent. They shed light on the structure of the modern continents of the world. East Antarctic on the composition of mountains such as India and Australia. We will examine more closely the interaction of the tectonic plates and the dynamics of the deep mantle.
