It's a natural circle, scientists say, where the tectonic plates come together to be a supercontinent, and then break up again.
The last time it happened, it formed a supercontinent of the name & # 39; Pangea & # 39; about 310 million years ago, before cutting about 180 million years ago.

The future continent could take several shapes: Novopangea, Pangea Ultima, Aurica and Amasia.
In the Amasia scenario, for example, a collision would see North and South America joining together – and the Arctic Coast disappears as Asia joins America, which is being caused by the Earth's tectonic plates moving.
The researchers say they think Novopangaea is the most likely.
The researchers are writing, If we assume that today's conditions continue, so that the Atlantic continues to open and the Pacific continues to close, we have a situation where & # 39; r next supercontinent forms Pangea antipodies.
The Americas would confront with Antarctica in North Wales to the north, and then Africa-Eurasia has conflicted.
The supercontinent that would then form would have been named Novopangea, or Novopangaea.
