Science

+ - When Continental Drift was considered Pseudoscience ->

Submitted by Lasrick
Lasrick (2629253) writes "Love this article in Smithsonian by Richard Conniff. One of my geology professors was in grad school when the theories for plate tectonics, seafloor spreading, etc., were introduced; he remembered how most of his professors denounced them as ridiculous. This article chronicles the introduction of continental drift theory, starting a century ago with Alfred Wegener.
A nice read."
