Researchers have found part of Canada’s continental shield in Australia. The 1.7 billion-year-old bedrock, found near Georgetown in Australia’s Queensland state, doesn’t look like Australian rock. Instead, the sandstone – rippled by an ancient, shallow sea – looks a lot like sedimentary rock from the Yukon or Alaska. The conclusion: at some point, northeastern Australia was connected to North America. At some point it broke off and eventually, about 100 million years later, collided with what would become Australia.
The discovery backs a long-standing theory about a supercontinent called Nuna, which is likely predated the best-known and most recent supercontinent, Pangea, by more than a billion years. In fact, Nuna is just one of several suspected supercontinents to have formed and dissolved over the Earth’s four-billion-year history.
