Images reveal a timeline of the ancient landmasses buried beneath Antarctica
They were taken by the long-dead Gravity field and Ocean Circulation Explorer
The ESA satellite collected data on Earth's gravitational pull
The European Space Agency (ESA) has uncovered relics of lost continents that have hidden under Antarctica for millions of years.
Satellite images reveal a timeline of the ancient landmasses buried a mile (1.6 km) beneath the icy continent.
Scientists said the snaps shed new light on Antarctica, the 'least understood continent on Earth'.
They used data from the long-dead Gravity field and Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE), which plummeted into Earth after it ran out of fuel in 2013.
While the satellite has been out of action for five years, scientists are still pouring over reams of data it collected on Earth's gravitational pull.
