Planetary Plumber's Crack

Also from BBCnews (yeah, I know, 3rd one, sue me), the birth of what could be a new ocean in Africa:

The largest tear in the Earth's crust seen in decades, if not centuries, could carve out a new ocean in Africa, according to satellite data.

Geologists say a crack that opened up last year may eventually reach the Red Sea, isolating much of Ethiopia and Eritrea from the rest of Africa.

Something tells me it'd take more than a big bucket of spackle to fix that crack.
