Could You Really Dig From Lafayette Straight Through To China?

I’m going to China, that was the reason for many a hole that was dug in my parents back yard. I, like a lot of you probably think, in theory you could dig straight through to China. I guess if you had the right kind of drilling equipment you could dig a hole all the way through the center of the Earth. If you lived and Lafayette and dug such a hole would you actually come out in China?

The short answer is no. So if you don’t wind up in China where would you wind up? With the answer to that question is this, the Antipodes Map. You zoom in on your house on the top map and on the bottom map it will show you where you would come out on the other side of the planet. Here is a word of advice, if you’re going to actually attempt this, bring some scuba gear and be sure to ask your parents if it’s okay to dig in the backyard.
