...at least and still be on earth.
I figured out today that Toronto is at latitude 43 42 00 N and longitude 079 25 00 W. Therefore, it's antipode (the very opposite point on the globe) is at 43 42 S and 100 36 E. That location is approximately 1600 km south-west of Perth, Australia in the middle of the Indian ocean.
It'll be a bit difficult for me to get there, given that there is no regular bus service that serves the middle of the Indian Ocean. Maybe some day I'll hire a boat (or, perhaps, Brandon will buy that boat and take me with him).
Anyone else every find out where the exact opposite point on the globe to their home? Anyone ever thought of going, or been?
P.S. Want to find out the antipode to your city? First, if you don't already know, find the where you are on the earth here: Long and Lat for major cities.
Next, calculate your antipode. Your latitude will be the same, just with the opposite direction (North instead of South). Longitude will be your longitude minus 180. (mine was 79, subtract 180 and you get -101). Drop the minus and switch the direction (for me, switching from W to E), and there you are. (That was confusing, I know).
Finally, go to Mapquest and see where your antipode is. Note that when entering for latitude, enter minus values for south, and when entering for longitude, enter minus values for W.
