The World Upside Down ... or is it?

We all grew up knowing that when we think of the world, that north is up. Is it really?

In space there is no up or down so when we think of our own earth, north could be up, or north could be down.

Here is a view of a map of the earth showing what the world would look like if south were up. I found it quite interesting.
