Screen Shot 2017-02-17 at 12.03.48 PMPedal power isn’t the only interesting bit of news coming from the Deep South, as a team of scientists from NZ, Australia, and New Caledonia today published their data proving, they say, that the region of Zealandia is actually a single, intact piece of continental crust separate from Australia.  In sailing and sport, we’ve long called the region Oceania, but the new data makes it much more likely that Zealandia will indeed be recognized as Earth’s seventh continent (or 8th, if you count Europe and Asia separately like a plebe).

The argument ain’t new, but it’s the first time it’s been presented in such a compelling and formal way, and it may help to convince the only people empowered and qualified to decide how many continents there are…schoolchildren and the teachers who make up their mnemonic rhymes.
