This Dynamic Earth: The Story of Plate Tectonics
In the early 1960s, the emergence of the theory of plate tectonics started a revolution in the earth sciences. Since then, scientists have verified and refined this theory, and now have a much better understanding of how our planet has been shaped by plate-tectonic processes. We now know that, directly or indirectly, plate tectonics influences nearly all geologic processes, past and present. Indeed, the notion that the entire Earth's surface is continually shifting has profoundly changed the way

The car consists of the car body, two rotating front wheels, and two rotating rear wheels. The incline angle (in radians) can be changed via a textbox and the rocketâ€™s thrust can be changed via a slider. In addition the car can be dragged to its initial position. A
