Ever wondered where you’d end up by digging straight through the Earth from your backyard?

Now you can find out with an interactive map on antipodesmap.com. Unlike childhood notions, the Earth’s round shape means you won’t end up in a predictable location. For example, people in the USA might pop out in China, while those in the UK could find themselves in Australia.

The map lets you select any point globally, and on the opposite side, a person’s head appears, revealing the exact antipodal point. It’s a much more convenient way to explore what’s on the opposite side of the Earth than grabbing a jackhammer. Give it a try and see where you’d emerge!
