This is very interesting, but why didn't they show an upper view of where they think this "split" may happen?

The split has already been happening. That's what the rift valleys are all about.

How about filling the rift with fast drying concrete?  Works in the movies! :whistle:

The map at the top of the article linked below gives an impression of what the split-apart Africa will look like, some millions of years hence:

Living millions of years would be awesome to see these kind of phenomena evolving.

I agree with the frog, it sure would be neat to see the world in a few million years.

Where did you get this pic, Hammie?? I'm assuming this is also the effect of melting glaciers and such. Interestingly enough, comparing this pic to this , looks like South America will be connecting to Antarctica. 

Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe............... :w00t:  

 

Wait! Where's Connecticut on there?! 

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!! :cry:
