Antipodes, on the other side of the world

Every location on Earth has an antipode, that is, a location on the exact opposite side of the globe. Their longitudes differ by 180° and their latitudes are equally distant from the equator, but one is north and the other south. Dawn in one place is evening in the other. Summer in one place is winter in the other. Antipodes have little or no historical, geological or geographical relevance, but have nevertheless drawn curiosity since Plato, who first recorded the word as αντίποδες, "opposite" "the feet". Because only 29% of the planet is land, and most of it is in the northern hemisphere, antipodes which are both on land are rather the exception. Most people live opposite fish in the ocean. Australians, by sheer chance, find their antipodeans in the middle of the Atlantic.
