Question: Are the familiar with the theory that the earth is flat?
earth, flat, theory
Asked by qionex to Leah-Nani, Andrew, Hina, Ian, Kathryn, Xu on 12 Jun 2018. This question was also asked by Shmoome666.
answered on 12 Jun 2018:
Yes, and I think it’s generous to call it a “theory”. I would call that a “fallacy”, a “lie” or just plain wrong.

People assumed this a long time ago, luckily we have pictures from space now to show the beautiful curvature of the Earth.

What Leah-Nani said. I couldn’t put it in such a nice way.
This is a video taken by one of our spacecraft shortly after launch; The Earth look pretty round from up there.
Ian commented on 13 Jun 2018:
The earth is flat, and when you send satellites up into space they just hang there cos there’s no gravity in space. 🙂 (Not)
Andrew commented on 13 Jun 2018:
Here’s a video from one of our satellites that was launch hot (the camera’s on); the Earth is clearly round
Has a UFO ever come to Earth?
If NASA faked the Moon landing, how can we trust them that the Earth is round? NASA also lied about the size of Africa.
if the earth is represented as a sphere why is it proven to be flat ????
