In 2002, Steve Fosset became the first person to fly around the world in a hot air balloon. Where did he start and land?

in the United States
in Australia

Fossett chose a southern hemisphere route to take advantage of prevailing easterly winds and the lack of mountain ranges. His path after leaving Australia was straight across the South Pacific, past Easter Islands, and over the southern tip of South America.
