Do you ever think: “gee, I wonder where I’d end up if I just dug straight through to the other side of the world”?
Like everything else these days, there’s a map on the internet that will tell you the exact answer. The interactive Antipodes Map uses coordinates to pinpoint your exact location—on both ends of the world.
“The antipodes of any place on the Earth is the point on the Earth’s surface which is diametrically opposite to it. Two points that are antipodal to each other are connected by a straight line running through the centre of the Earth.”
At the top of the site you can type in any city in the world, click search, and instantly see where you’d pop out.
Contrary to popular belief that you’d “end up somewhere in China,” if you dug a hole from NYC you’d come out deep off the coast of Australia in the Indian Ocean.
You know, assuming you’d survive middle earth…
