worlds 8th continent missing for 375 years was found what is Zealandia know
According to a BBC report, Zealandia has an area of 1.89 million square miles, making it a huge continent. It is about 6 times larger than Madagascar. The team of scientists says that in reality there are not 7 but 8 continents. And this new continent has broken all previous records. This is the smallest, thinnest and youngest world in the world.
If you are thinking of settling in Zealandia, then wait. In fact, 94 percent of the new continent is under water. According to the report, Andy Tulloch, a geologist at the New Zealand Crown Research Institute who was part of the discovery, has said that this is an example of how much time it takes to uncover something.
Scientist says that studying Zealandia has always been a difficult task. Most of the samples collected for this were obtained through drilling. The new map also reveals the geological features of the continent of Zealandia. The special thing is that once upon a time, Zealandia was originally a part of the continent of Gondwana.
It has not been said in the study whether the world's 8th continent will ever come out of water. If this happens even after hundreds of years, humans may find a new place to migrate. The new map of Zealandia has excited the scientific community for new studies in the future.
