This is part of the natural cycle, scientists say, where the tectonic plates merge into the supercontinent, which breaks down again.
The last time that happened, the supercontinent known as & # 39; Pangea & # 39; formed about 310 million years ago before breaking it around 180 million years ago.

The future continent could have several forms: Novopangea, Pangea Ultima, Aurica and Amasia.
In the Amasia scenario, for example, the collision could see North and South America gather – the Arctic Ocean disappears as Asia joins America, all of which is caused by Earth's "tectonic plates" it moves.
Researchers say they believe Novopangaea is most likely.
Researchers say: "If we assume that today's conditions continue to exist, so that the Atlantic continues to open, and that the Dark Ocean closes, we have a scenario where the next supercontinent is formed in the antipodes of Pangea.
America would collide with Antarctica in the north, and then in the already collided Africa – Eurasia.
The Superkontinent who would then form it was called Novopange or Novopangaea.
