Continental Drift is the theory created by Alfred Wegener in 1912, that all continents are on a plate that are constantly moving along the Earths asthenosphere. He was able to prove this theory with evidence of the super continent Pangaea and that all of the continents fit together like puzzle pieces. If this was not evidence enough in 1946, Harry Hess, a geologist discovered that the Pacific floor was shaped like a bunch of "flat topped mountains". In 1960 he then said that the movement of the continent was a result of seafloor spreading, the formation of a new land from the rising magma at the mid-ocean ridges.
