How's your geology?
Pangea is the name of super continent that exicsted 100's of millions of years ago. All the landmasses of the earth were in one giant block, and with the shifting of the Eartrhs tectonic plates, we get the continents that we see today. Britian and Europe were once in the tropics. We know this by the vast qualitities of coal we all have. The remanents of ancient rain forrests.
Scientists have worked out, using exisiting data on continental drift, that in 250 million years time the continents will have lumped into one giant landmass again.
They have named it, of course, Pangea Ultima.
Britian looks awfully far north now! Brrrrrr!
