Mauritius to be smashed between Africa and India in 200 million years, claims AI simulation



All continents are continuously moving, driven by tectonic plates beneath us that are slowly but surely in transit one from destination to another. In about 200 million years from now, India will smash into Somalia and Madagascar – with Mauritius caught in the middle, a new study suggests.

Based on simulations that predict tectonic plate movements in the distant future, scientists ascertained that the Arabian Sea would cease to exist in 200 million years. India’s western coastline would be replaced by Somalian mountains.

India’s financial capital would be then situated at the foot of the so-called “Somalaya Mountains” that would run replace the entire coastal line.

Mauritius would reportedly be smashed in the middle between Madagascar and Kolkata.

The research team noted that Seychelles and Mauritius islands will all be pushed up. They will no longer exist as islands but become part of the Somalaya Mountains.

Sri Lanka as we know it today could also smash into Mauritius.

The research paper was published in the American Journal of Science by Utrecht University geologist Professor Douwe van  Hinsbergen.

A similar process gave birth to continents as we understand them today from the former supercontinent of Pangea that broke away over millions of years of movement to give rise to all mountain ranges and coastal regions that exist today.
