Anyone know of a website/video that'd show the movement of tectonic plates throughout history? Or is that not like a thing we know yet?

Found a good tectonic plate animation! Seems legit, and it was linked in a PBS Eons video, so it's probably legit. youtube.com/watch?v=UwWWuttnti

(Also the Eons video, which was almost cooler: youtube.com/watch?v=KfYn9KVya- )

@Technowix Yeah I saw that, I just thought if there'd be any higher quality ones 😅

The idea of drifting continents is also relatively modern.

"All this evidence, both from the ocean floor and from the continental margins, made it clear around 1965 that continental drift was feasible and the theory of plate tectonics, which was defined in a series of papers between 1965 and 1967, was born"
