Pangea Ultima: The Next Supercontinent
Earth is on autopilot. It has the potential to support life for over a billion years longer.
Eventually, continental drift will assemble another supercontinent called Pangea Ultima. The universe’s age is 13.7 billion years ago.
Stars will continue to form for another 100 trillion years. We talk about terraforming Mars. But we can’t even take care of our own. In a game of cat and mouse, the clock is ticking.
Just like 99% of species that ever existed, we’re not extinction proof. Earth will be fine. But we won’t.
