Plate tectonics is super-cool

When I was a kid, I got this great book on Alfred Wegener, and  since then I've thought the story of the continental drift one of the most fascinating tales ever. Seriously, try telling the story to the kid next door. They'll love it.

And the story gets cooler. The article comes with a great animation of Gondwana splitting into pieces, which is just awesome.
