Newly released data from a European satellite has revealed the tectonic underworld below the frozen southernmost continent. Researchers have created incredible 3-D maps of Antarctica’s tectonic underworld and found that the ice has been concealing the remains of an ancient supercontinent’s spectacular destruction. It is well known to scientists that the exact geological makeup of Antarctica’s innermost land, located in East Antarctica, is yet to be discovered. What else awaits discovery in this mysterious continent?
