### Can you drill through Earth?

First, let us state the obvious: You can’t drill a hole through the center of the Earth. To date, the deepest hole is the Kola Superdeep Borehole. Drilling started in the 1970s and finished some 20 years later when the team reached 40,230 feet (12,262 meters). That is about 7.5 miles, or just over 12 km.

### How far is it around the world at the equator in miles?

The distance around the Earth at the Equator, its circumference, is 40,075 kilometers (24,901 miles). The Earth’s diameter is also wider at the Equator, creating a phenomenon called an equatorial bulge.

What is distance north or south of the Earth’s equator?

The circle around the equator is zero and it goes up to 90 degrees north , that is the north pole and down to 90 degrees south, that is the south pole. The distance each degree covers is about 81 miles I think and that is going to be the same on a ball earth and a flat earth.
