TV Learn how our continents got formed

Discovery Science presents a new series – Voyage of the Continents . The series explores the science of tectonics and how it has shaped and dominated human history.

Over billions of years, our planet has never stopped changing shape. Massive tectonic forces have sculpted and re-sculpted our world in a never-ending journey. Incredible collisions have created entire continents and these tectonic forces are still at work.

The five-part series presents the interaction of geology and life. Tectonics frames our landscapes, changes our climates, dries up our oceans, and can destroy life.

Discover how huge tectonic events created a world of strange shapes and vivid colours. Voyage of the Continents starts February 19, and airs every Tuesday at 8 p.m. on Discovery Science.
