The European Space Agency (ESA) collects satellite data and says the ice in Antarctica makes it possible to conceal the remains of a lost continent.
The research, published in Nature Scientific Reports, uses data collected by GOCE (Gravity Field and Ocean Circulation Explorer), a satellite that has been in existence for four years and aims to measure the earth's gravity attraction.
The satellite circled the earth from March 2009 to November 2013.

Researchers continue to investigate data from the GOCE mission. This is the team from Kiel University in Germany and the British Antarctic Survey finds a bit under the ice in Antarctica.
They then combined data from GOCE with seismological data to create a 3D map of the Antarctic crust.
Using gravitational gradients, they can see the Earth's crust during the Antarctica.
Beaches on earth are interconnected
They found cracks in the earthquake around Antarctica that resemble cracks in the earth's crust in other parts of the world. This shows that in the past, beaches on earth were connected to each other.
It is estimated that the earthquakes in antiquity – are interconnected with each other, and are part of the super Pangea continent, according to the Digital Trends report.
In eastern Antarctica data shows similarities with the Earth's crust there with earthquakes in Australia and India, indicating that this region once was interconnected.
On the other hand, West Antarctica has a thinner earth crust without a palace, which means it is connected to other parts.

This discovery is not only interesting for geologists, it is also interesting for people who are curious about earth's history.
Previously, the continent of the earth seemed to merge into one, namely Pangea. 160 million years ago, Pangea began to share and form the continent that we know today.
