Destination: Point Nemo.

A point in the vast Southern Ocean, defined as the place furthest from land in the world with 2,688km apart in every direction. Named after Captain Nemo from the Jules Verne story, this is the place where the sailors are closer to the astronauts on the International Space Station than they are to any earthly inhabitation.

If anything, at least the crew got each other!
