Expanding earth possible on mars?

  1. Apr 19, 2014 #1
    In 1889 and 1909 Roberto Mantovani published a hypothesis of Earth expansion and continental drift. He assumed that a closed continent covered the entire surface of a smaller Earth. He believed thermal expansion led to volcanic activity, which broke the big continent into smaller continents. The Curiosity rover from NASA found solid water samples on mars. I'm just wondering if it's possible that mars might expand someday? Sorry if this might be a stupid question.:bugeye:

    I'm sorry, but this can't go anywhere good: nonsense from nonsense. Locked.
