The Prime Meridian is the line that marks all points at Zero longitude. The

International Dateline roughly follows the meridian of 180° longitude. Since

those two lines mark different longitudes, the only place where they can meet

would be a place where all longitudes come together. Fortunately, there are

two of those on Earth . . . the north and south poles.

They meet at 90° north latitude and at 90° south latitude.
