I'm sure all of you in here are able to calculate antipode coords,
but here i found a neat map to visualize them immidiately:
It's german, but i think self-explanatory
That is pretty neat. I had no idea what an antipode was, much less how to calculate one.
If anyone else doesn't know what antipode is and is up for a short mental challenge, instead of doing a search for antipod, follow Martin's link and see if you can figure it out in under 60 seconds - and no, you don't need to read German.
Cool find Martin, thanks.
You'll find some interresting facts, for instance, the antipode of the center of Australia is right in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
Seems Australia acts like a counterweight. ; )
Wikipedia lists one in english (plain and simple):
