Can You Correctly Answer Elon Musk's Favorite Job Interview Question?

A Musk-Answer Question

If nerves somehow don't completely destroy you before sitting down for a job interview with Elon Musk, here's how to handle the rest of the experience. While speaking at the World Government Summit in Dubai in February 2017, Musk gave some insight on how to nail an interview with him. Spoiler: It's not easy.
"Tell me the story of your life and the decisions that you made along the way and why you made them, and also tell me about some of the most difficult problems you worked on and how you solved them," Musk said, adding that the question is "very important." Yeah, you heard the man, tell him. Your. Life. Story. But really, what were you expecting?

Here's the Interview Question

According to Elon Musk's biography written by Ashlee Vance, the tech mogul has — or at one point had — one particular interview question he'd ask every candidate. Unlike the daunting story about your life's journey, this one is almost a riddle. Here goes:
You're standing on the surface of Earth. You walk one mile south, one mile west, and one mile north. You end up exactly where you started. Where are you?
Scroll down to see if Elon would hire you, er, if you got the correct answer. Hint: There are two correct answers to this tricky riddle.
