DEEP in the South Pacific Ocean lies a graveyard of hundreds of fallen spacecraft. Point Nemo, Latin for "no one", is Earth's farthest zone from dry land, making it the ideal spot to crash defunct rockets and satellites.DEEP in the South Pacific Ocean lies a graveyard of hundreds of fallen spacecraft. Point Nemo, Latin for “no one”, is around 4,000 metres deep and further from land than any point on Ea…
