Why did Gondwana break up?

In January 2012, marine geophysicists from Kiel started an expedition to the most remote island in the world. Although the island Tristan da Cunha plays a key role in the general understanding of plate tectonics, how it came into existence is still controversial. With the research vessel MARIA S. MERIAN marine scientists from Kiel (Germany) want to gain new data from the region to answer some of the open questions. See press release attached.
