Expanding Earth flash animation

Earth expansion has caused continental drift

This simple flash animation graphically shows how much the Earth has expanded from 200 million years ago to the present day. As the Earth expands, South America and Africa move away from each other in the southern hemisphere and North America moves away from Europe in the northern hemisphere. The Atlantic Ocean grows in size to fill the widening space in between the continents. This process is similar all around the world.
