Scientists now believe that at one point, several billion years ago, there was only one continent, which we call Pangea. Because of plate tectonics, which is the movement of the plates making up the crust of the Earth, that super continent has broken up, and parts of it are drifting erratically around the Earth. It is purely chance that so much continental crust is concentrated in one hemisphere.
