Very cool. Doing evolution with my class now. Maybe this'll make a good homework article.
That's where Cthulu lives.
Maybe a giant see monster took a bite off the Earth's crust. Maybe.
Maybe its the hellmouth...
EDIT: Sorry, I thought I was in the Fuzzy for 2 secs.
You saucy minx!
Maybe it's some heretofore unencountered geological process which would require a slight addition to or modification of the basic theories of plate tectonics and crustal formation.
But how likely is that?
What? You think you can just waltz right in with your facts and scientific hokus pocus theories? A certified scientician in a Burger King men's room told me that the Earth was gonna turn inside out, and that was the hole it was going to do that through. I believe that has a bit more credibility than your little hetero unencountered testonic crusts.
That's pretty cool, better than the meteor crater that lies off the Chesapeake Bay.
The earth is a popple?
Maybe the missing piece of crust is part of the moon...
[serious business]The missing crust is along the mid-Atlantic ridge, which is one of the primary spots on the planet for sea-floor formation. All the rock around it is relatively new, essentially spewed up from the furious hell that is the mantle. The moon is far older.[/ceryuss biznass]
So, if the moon was formed by a giant impact a long time ago, then of course it would be older than the now exposed rock that is churning up from the mid ocean ridge.
That's what i was thinking. Or maybe it's where the Livaithan lives, or giant squid, or people lost in the Bermuda triangle.
Stop making sense, you don't want to be part of the 1/6th of the thread that isn't acting like this is the Fuzzy World.
Uh Oh! Here comes Galactus!
Streck, Boardwise, will one of you please Yale this at the request of the thread author?
I heard there was a gigantic hole like that in the crust of Uranus, and other solar system planets. (I'm sorry, I think it's all the talk about planets, holes and crusts…)
No, but really, I'm curious to see further developments to see how this story unfolds. I love it when the immovable bases of modern science are shaken every now and then with new discoveries.
