The asthenosphere in not broken up into seven very large continental and ocean sized plates. It is the lithosphere that is broken down in this manner.The asthenosphere is the molten part of the mantle just below the lithosphere. It is molten and magma originates here. The lithosphere is the part of the earth broken into seven major plates with other minor ones. The lithosphere is made up of the crust and part of the upper mantle. The asthenosphere is kept molten by heat from within the earth and radioactivity. Older, colder and denser lithospheric plates sinks into the asthenosphere during subduction processes.
