A new sea in making ?

A crack in the land of Ethiopia about 20 feet wide was opened in 2005. Some geo scientists believed that it would spawn a new ocean. However, the view was controversial. The new studies says that the process which is creating the rift is similar to what happens in the bottom of the oceans. It can create a new sea in the future. The red sea was created with the same kind of rift activity.
