Relics of 'lost continents' Hidden Under Antarctica
#1
So, it appears all those stories of ancient continents under the ice of Antarctica are true, as revealed by these satellite images.
Is this where some of our ancient ancestors lived, as told by many professional researchers and insiders?
Wonder what else will be revealed to us as more disclosure is released?

Quote:The European Space Agency (ESA) has uncovered relics of lost continents that have hidden under Antarctica for millions of years.
Satellite images reveal a timeline of the ancient landmasses buried a mile (1.6 km) beneath the icy continent.

Scientists said the snaps shed new light on Antarctica, the 'least understood continent on Earth'.
They used data from the long-dead Gravity field and Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE), which plummeted into Earth after it ran out of fuel in 2013.

While the satellite has been out of action for five years, scientists are still pouring over reams of data it collected on Earth's gravitational pull.

A team of scientists used GOCE readings to map out the movements of Earth's tectonic plates under Antarctica.
Their research allowed them to track hidden tectonic shifts over the last 200 million years, offering fresh insights into how Antarctica formed.

'These gravity images are revolutionising our ability to study the least understood continent on Earth: Antarctica,' said co-author Fausto Ferraccioli, Science Leader of Geology and Geophysics at the British Antarctic Survey.

'In East Antarctica, we see an exciting mosaic of geological features that reveal fundamental similarities and differences between the crust beneath Antarctica and other continents it was joined to until 160 million years ago.'

Scientists combined the GOCE readings with seismological data to create 3D maps of Earth's lithosphere.
The lithosphere is made up of the crust and the molten mantle beneath Earth's surface, and includes mountain ranges, ocean backs and rocky zones called cratons.

Cratons are the leftovers of ancient continents embedded in continents as we know them today.

The new readings shed light on the breakup of Gondwana, a long-gone 'supercontinent' that housed what is now Antarctica.
While the landmass split some 130 million years ago, the map shows that Antarctica and Australia remained linked as recently as 55 million years ago.

The study also revealed that West Antarctica has a thinner crust than East Antarctica, which has a 'family likeness to Australia and India'.

I'd like to think those are actual pictures.
