In this book — the first in trilogy — we try to understand tectonics; of why lands move over the Earth's surface and the consequences of these movements — be they volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, or mountain building. It is explained now for the first time. However, this subject, still in its infancy, had to bridged by three hypotheses; how did the solar system form, how did the Earth happen and, how and when did the Moon come about; all three critical in understanding ';tectonics'.
