Africa's New Ocean
(Via Metafilter) Anyone writing a story set in Africa of 10 million years in the future (and really, who isn't?) will want to take into account Africa's new ocean. Fortunately for me, my space opera is set only twelve thousand years in the future, so it would probably be merely Africa's new pond by then (if we hadn't already dismantled the Earth to rebuild it in a more interesting shape...).
