To day, I’ll show you video What If the African Continent Broke Apart?
You’ve seen politics and national borders change all the time, but have you ever witnessed a continent literally breaking apart?
Well, it’s possible, and it’s happening to Africa right now. In 2005, a 60-km-long stretch of the continent cracked open over a period of just ten days, and it hasn’t stopped expanding since. Eventually, the landmass will break right off, giving birth to a brand new ocean.
How soon will this happen? And what does it mean for the people of Africa?
