We all may, at some point in time, want to go away from all. If it needs to be worked someday, a point is there, farthest from the mainland of the Earth. Some people call it an invisible land. We are talking about Point Nemo, the remotest place on Earth, having nothing around it except water, at least within a thousand miles. This is actually an abstract spot, with coordinates 123°23.6′W 48°52.6′S, approximately 2,688 kilometers from Ducie Island. Where is Point Nemo? As Point Nemo is one of the places that are most talked about, many people are searching on the internet on where is Point Nemo and how to reach there, among several other questions. Ducie Island is the closest land on Earth from Point Nemo, and the distance is 2,688 kilometers. Apart from Ducie Island on the 2,688 kilometers north, Point Nemo has Motu Nui in the northeast and Maher Island in the south in the same distance. Ducie is a part of Pitcairn Island, and Maher is an Antarctic Island. Ducie Island is a rocky stretch of two kilometers long with no habitants. If one is to head to the most remote place on Earth, it is better to choose Ducie Island. Point Nemo is one of the poles of inaccessibility. In the northern region, such a pole exists on an Arctic island near 626 miles from Canada. In the southern region, the same kind of pole is located almost 900 kilometers from the Soviet Union. How did the spot get its name? Have you read ‘Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea by Jules Verne or shown the film? If yes, then you must remember the character ‘Captain Nemo.’ In the novel, he is antisocial and roams the oceans in a submarine called the Nautilus to avoid people’s company. Nemo is a Latin word meaning no man, and the point has been named after Captain Nemo. Isolated places always attract filmmakers and literary persons. American author H P Lovecraft also chose a South Pacific oceanic island wholly isolated from the human land. Recently, virtual band Gorillaz created an album on marine conversation based on an isolated abstract location like Point Nemo. How old is Point Nemo Technically the location did not exist before 1992, meaning the human world has known its existence for only thirty years. Interestingly, Hrvoje Lukatela, the survey engineer from Croatia, who is mainly behind finding the remotest place on Earth, didn’t go there, not even anywhere closer to Point Nemo. He figured it out using computer technology. Relying on the formula of three equidistant coordination lands, Lukatela calculated where is Nemo Point. Life on Point Nemo A mysterious sound was heard near the Point Nemo Pacific Ocean in the 1990s. According to the researchers, the sound was the loudest one to be heard underwater. After scientists of NOAA worked a lot on it, they discovered the sound of a vast iceberg cracking and fracturing. There could be very little sea life here as there is almost no food anywhere nearby. Researchers have found small crabs and bacteria somewhere around Nemo Point. Importance of the abstract location for the space industry The Most remote place on Earth is now being used as a spot for space junk. Satellites, spaceships, and other space vehicles do not re-enter the Earth as they are destroyed by heat. Scientists need a safe area for those space debris to be dumped where there would be no risk of human life damage. NASA started using Point Nemo for this purpose, and since then, almost three hundred junk pieces have been dumped there, as per reports. The space debris dumped in the Point Nemo Pacific Ocean also includes Skylab, the space station launched by NASA for the first time, and Mir, the Russian space station. Conclusion Point Nemo does not have human life on it. But sadly, pollution has reached the area humans have not been through yet. Micro-plastic particles were found in the seawater near the spot in 2018. However, as the mysteries and myths evolve, researchers keep studying the farthest abstract location on Earth to know more about it.
