We once thought the Earth was flat—and we were wrong. We once thought Earth was one giant supercontinent on only one occasion—and we were wrong then, too, as proven by Ohio Univ. professor R. Damian Nance and his colleague Prof. Thomas Worsley. When Nance and Worsley proposed their theory of a supercontinent cycle—a series of supercontinents forming, breaking up and reforming over time—in 1982 the scientific community scoffed at the idea.
On April 1, 2014, Peter Littlewood took the helm at Argonne National Laboratory, being selected to serve as the national lab’s 13th director.
