We hear a lot about Near Earth Objects, and how much damage they could inflict
-- but most scenarios have impact zones between about 60N and 60S. Could a
major NEO (say 1km) land in the Circumpolar Current around Antarctica? Or maybe
in the North Atlantic between Iceland and England? So where will meteoroids NOT
impact this planet?
