Drifting On The Pieces Of The Earth’s Cracked Shell

Drifting On The Pieces Of The Earth’s Cracked ShellWith the Einstein’s theory of relativity and Darwin’s theory of evolution, the theory of plate tectonics is considered as one of the massive scientific advances of our age. As per the sources, the structure and the behavior of our planet shows that the Earth’s outer shell has been broken into enormous pieces of puzzle, weak rock increasing from the core mantle, affecting the mountains, volcanoes and the earthquakes, ocean canyons and the air we breathe. By comparing Earth with Venus, its sister planet, they found that they are approximately of the similar size and composed of the same rocky material, but Venus does not have plate tectonics just like Earth.

Jun Korenaga, a geophysicist at Yale University, said that early in the 1960s, when people discovered about the idea of plate tectonics, they never thought about what it was like in the early ages. The link between the evolution of complex life and plate tectonics are being explored by the researchers. Aubrey Zerkle, a geochemist at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, said that the relationship between Earth’s surface biology and deep Earth’s processes has not been cleared in the past, but that is varying fast.

Robert Stern, a geoscientist at the University of Texas, Dallas, said that they are looking for another planet to take over in order to ignore the signs of plate tectonic movement. According to them, those are the places where there is a possibility of life being evolved beyond the worm stage or the single stage. Earth’s outer layer has been broken into eight or nine huge segments and 5–6 smaller ones, which is a mixture of comparatively thin, thick plates of ocean riding thicker is what is determined by the geologists. All this recycling and convective bubbling between mantle and crust, innovative destruction and reconstruction of parts, “tectonic” which is a Greek word for build, is Earth’s approach of following thermodynamics second law.
