(Newser) – A journey through the center of the Earth would spit you out on the other side—but where? A Google Maps-based website aims to answer that question. AntipodeMap.com allows you to pick a location and automatically see the spot on the opposite side of the globe, Mashable reports. Most of the continental US, for example, is opposite the Indian Ocean. San Francisco's antipodal point: just southeast of Madagascar. Find out your own geographic antipode here. (Or check out something even weirder that Google Earth spotted—in the Gobi Desert.)
