Where do you end up if you dug a hole to the other side of the earth?

If you start in Albany,  you’d end up really wet, far off the coast of Australia.

Check out http://www.antipodemap.com/ to see where you’d end up from other places in the world.

Here’s how the Antipodes Map website explains it:

In geography, the antipodes of any place on Earth is its antipodal point; that is, the region on the Earth’s surface which is diametrically opposite to it. Two points which are antipodal to one another are connected by a straight line through the centre of the Earth.
