It is possible to fly from Perth (32Sdegrees, 115E degrees) to Tierra del Fuego (54S degrees, 65 W degrees) on the southern tip of South America by going directly over the south pole along a line of longitude. Calculate the great distance between Perth and Tierra del Fuego correct to the nearest kilometer
