42 minutes to fall through the earth

Assuming no friction, it would take 42 minutes to fall through the earth. Upon reaching the other side, you would slow to a stop, and then fall back through the same hole, reaching the other side 42 minutes later. Yup, 42 minutes. 42.

I submit 42 at being another devine number
