The device capable of burrowing straigh through Earth? I know few
guys who'll pay BIG BUCKS for such thing - where are selleing it?
And if you are not selling then the only way to go to the antipode is
along the Earth surface - so yes, 40'000km (give or take) is shortest path

The distance between antipodes is half that - 20000km ALONG THE EARTH SURFACE. It would be ~12000km thru the center of the Earth.
