Has anyone ever traveled around the earth going either north or south?

I know scientifically the earth is round like a sphere but Since I was a kid I have always looked at a map and thought it was flat. Even when I look at one today, I can't help but think, "Well what's on the other side?".

This may sound like a dumb question to some people but I am being very serious and am just thinking outside of the box.

As I think about it, I don't know if anyone ever has or not.... ☺

But most communications satellites are in polar (or near polar) orbits, and there are lots of flights which follow 'great circle' routes that are over the North Pole from LA and Hawaii to Europe.

You need to spend a few bucks and buy a globe (on a stand) for your desk ☺
