About 250 million years ago all of the continents were joined in a single land mass called Pangea
. Then they broke up and drifted apart
to their present positions. Plate tectonic projections forecast that 250 million years from now, the continents will once again join up into a single land mass now dubbed Pangea Ultima
. JRR Tolkien couldn't have dreamt up a better Middle Earth.
