Flagged as blog spam. Entire post is literally three sentences long and links to a much better article from the journal Nature: http://www.nature.com/news/long-lost-continent-found-under-t...

See also other "lost" "continents": Zealandia [0] in the Pacific (near New Zealand, obviously), Sundaland [1] near the Malay islands, and the Kerguelen Plateau in the Indian west of Australia [2]. Interesting how these three are all very close to one another.

We need more of these tl;dr, circa(http://cir.ca/) style news content
