Two men in New Zealand and Spain have created an "Earth sandwich" - by placing bread on precise points, either side of the planet, at the same time.

The man behind the sandwich, Etienne Naude from Auckland, told the BBC he wanted to make one for "years", but had struggled to find someone in Spain, on the other side of the globe.

He finally found someone after posting on the online message board, Reddit.

The men used longitude and latitude to make sure they were precisely opposite.

That meant there was around 12,724km (7,917 miles) of Earth packed between the slices - and some 20,000km between the men, for those forced to travel the conventional route.

Well, this is an unusal one... I bet the Earth sandwich didn't taste very good :lol: !

If you're wondering whether it's possible to do this from where you are, then I'd recommend this tool. Sadly, I can't do it from my home - and I expect that's true of quite a lot of the Earth's land :( .
That's interesting. :0 

It'd be cool to try this!

Yep. You may need to travel a fair bit, though, since your antipodal point is right in the middle of the Indian Ocean :P
