Continental Drift and You

Source: dinopictures.org

I found this really interesting interactive map designed by paleontologist Ian Webster while perusing the internet. It shows you where a selected location was at any point in time, all the way back to 750 million years ago. Why is this cool? The continents are constantly drifting around over time, so you can track where you’re currently living through time as the continents we know today were formed! My hometown of Cheshire, Connecticut seems like it was underwater for a couple of million years, around ~500 million years ago. Freaky to think about.
