Degrees of separation

February 27, 2004

My spouse and I have academic posts at, respectively, the Universite de Bretagne Sud in Vannes, France, and the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand ("Please don go breaking my heart", February 13).

This amounts to a great-circle separation of 174.5 degrees, which is very near to the maximum possible 180 degrees.

Is this a record?
