Mars Is Pangaea Original Article

“Mars has a diameter about as wide as the continent of Africa. Its overall size, or surface area, is about eight times less than Earth’s, but it has the same amount of dry land.”
jpl.nasa.gov

Mars
“The average thickness of the planet’s crust is about 50 km (31 mi), with a maximum thickness of 125 km (78 mi).”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mars

Earth
“The continental crust is typically from 30 km (20 mi) to 50 km (30 mi) thick and is mostly composed of slightly less dense rocks than those of the oceanic crust.”

“The Earth has probably always had some form of basaltic crust, but the age of the oldest oceanic crust today is only about 200 million years. In contrast, the bulk of the continental crust is much older.”
“The average age of the current Earth’s continental crust has been estimated to be about 2.0 billion years. Most crustal rocks formed before 2.5 billion years ago are located in cratons.”

It is well known “Pangaea” began to rift 200 million years ago. That is when Mars began to expand into becoming Earth, the first direct evidence of sea floor crust appearance.

Before 2.5 billion years ago was proto-earth stage #3 Ganymede: the largest satellite in the solar system.

  1. DUDE! You need a new source! You pick up sources which tell you that Mars is 8x smaller than Earth, pick up a book and learn how to use a telescope and measure the planet yourself, you’ll soon see that the diameter and the distance correlate towards a number that puts the planet ON PAR with Earth’s diameter.

    The only reason I know this is because I have seen the comparisons. VENUS is much smaller by comparison to Earth.

    • Wow so I apparently got the two mixed up…

      • I’d hope NASA is providing me with accurate data. Anyways it’s alright mix ups happen.. I’ve been studying the Solar System for years and can practically imagine it all in my head now. Still working on many of the small satellites and kuiper belt objects tho. Not sure what’s left for me to discover about these astronomical objects in our Solar System but I might be pleasantly surprised. For the most part I like studying terrestrial objects because their formations are easier to grasp especially with this system I’ve developed. Seriously all the evidence is laid out for me, the formation stages are tangible. I almost moved on to studying stars in our local neighborhood in order to figure out our sun’s formation but… had to stop for my own reasons. I think figuring out how Earth is made as well as 19 other astronomical objects is good enough. Even though the world hasn’t quite recognized yet, I’ve achieved a great feat and I’m already celebrating lol
