The 8th Continent

Recommended Posts

Scientists are sure they've identified the missing 8th continent, which they call Zealandia. While 94 percent is underwater, with just a few islands, such as New Zealand above the water.

It's been mapped in great detail. It got it's continent status in 2017.

I must be psychic

Scroll down:

The term "submerged continent" is most often heard in association with the legendary lands of Atlantis or Mu. Atlantis and Mu never really existed, but there are a couple of real submerged continents around the world. Both are in the Southern Hemisphere. The submerged continents go by the names of Zealandia and the Kerguelen Plateau.
