    so smart he build a rocket... so dump to put his life at risk inside his tin can instead of installing a camera let the rocket fly wherever it goes and get the same results... no we don't need more people like him the earth is full of them.

    And you can do this too, as long as you are part of a BS psyop for daydreamers who only watch RUclip and think a holy book...with a kings stamp of approval... speaking in allegory, parable, and other symbolism translated from languages with meaning to Pish English. How you fell on a flat Earth, go figure.
    I mean look at all the flat things like.. You couldn't name one natural thing. For a reason. You should learn how the cones and rods receive the picture and how everything in this world works. what's connecting our eyeballs?oh wow that's spiraled just like in the nose, in the ears, our trachea, spinal column, veins, fingerprint, heart, also a ton of bones in the body, water as it falls and as it evaporates, the hydrological system , planets , stars, oh yeah the Earth etc etc etc I mean look it up yourself really, everything coming from nature and the way things grow. Why does all that stuff up in the sky spin like that, oh wait that's not part of Fe, just part of reality. Pretty pathetic when you say that the water is flat when water is in constant movement and never could be. So it's level though... On the surface... You can't accuse a flat earther of leaving the house to go underwater and see the same curves. Never heard of Rippetoe either huh? But again the dirt is flat? Or is it just the stacked up sand granules? The sad part is are being mocked the worst part is your content because you haven't learned how to think in order to find any answers for yourself. I guess you've never looked at a Flat Earth debunked video either, Surely. Well at least now you can think about water and think about sand or go learn about them from the start and don't forget nature because you come from it, not those walls that contain all that fart fume. Being mocked isn't Fun and if you think what I'm doing is mocking you it is no worse than what you are doing to yourself and the people who have to be around you. It is pathetic when your answers are, " you got to watch this 4 hour long video, on repeat, in my basement with the gas leak." Claims of Tesla or Viktor schauberger on your videos as well is a complete abomination and if you would ever read any of their work, Tesla's written news articles, speaking engagements, and patents. Schaubergers books and patents. Remember it's just NASA you are upset with. Without any knowledge of physics to pinpoint what exactly the problem is and how you're being robbed. As well as your friends that put their mark reitan the side of those Rockets that go into the ocean. You always get some truth mixed in with your poison and you guys are too heavy on the mixture of poison. Remember this was your original thought in the first place. Try learning what exactly is an just handed to you by a recommendation and autoplay on RUclip

These people dont want the truth. They want to believe in this nonsense. People that WANT to believe in something wont ever change their minds becasue their belief is based on how they identify themselves and being comfortable with their beliefs. So, people are afraid to get out of their comfort zone and afraid to believe in something that would make them lose their self identity and their self identity is all they have

    IF the earth IS flat, he prob'ly still could't tell even if he reached 60-70 thousand feet.
    For the sun to disappear over the horizon, even with a flat earth, would mean its not entirely flat, but more dome shaped.

    The funny thing is that he will never see it as a round ellipsoid as it is impossible. No matter how far you are from the Earth, you will always see it as a disk. Depending on the distance and the angle you can onlye see it more egg-shape like. That is the biggest irony of that experiment. Not that it might change anything, but the fact that even if it succeedded, it would still fail.

You will see the whole boat. But in the flat earth.... When it's a little bit further, you will see the whole boat but small. Behind the boat is a horizon.. How in the world would the word and thing "Horizon" should exist? Another fact that I prove the earth is a Sphere. Ask your friend to go to china.. then you chat and say on your friend "Is it night time on yours?" They might say yes.. Thats only i know.

    • Dielfon Elletab
      Dielfon Elletab Месяц назад

      Just by the way Joseph, it's really hard to get stuck in space because you'd need to be in orbit. It takes at least 9.3 km/s delta-v to reach orbit, or much, much less to reach a sub orbital trajectory (depending on how high up you want to get). Delta-V btw is basically a measure of how much energy you need in your spacecraft - or more strictly, how much of a change in velocity your rocket can achieve with your fuel and engines.
      It takes so much more delta-v to get to orbit because you not only need to go up at least 100kms (at the very least, your orbit wouldn't be stable due to small atmospheric effects), but also sideways really fast - basically you need to move more quickly sideways than you are falling down so you never hit the Earth.

    • Mephi
      Mephi 3 месяца назад

      Falt Earth'ers don't believe that he is a hero; instead, we believe he is a SHILL. Someone put out there to discredit those that believe in a flat earth. Weird how such a simple tactic can work so easily. You bought it, right? Or, can you think outside the box - using your own brain?
      We're told that those circular patterns of light around Polaris are caused by the rotation of the earth; a movement of *24,901 miles* in 24 hours. Meanwhile, in that same time span, the earth will have moved *1,584,000 miles* on it's purported journey around our sun; and an additional *15,840,000 miles* with our sun on its' purported journey through the galaxy. Not to mention all those stars are moving in their own courses and speeds too.
      How can these stars (photographed using time-lapse photography) *_ONLY SHOW_* trails of light as perfect circles around the north star? While these same images record absolutely no such apparent movement of the earth itself (through the solar system and galaxy)? A lateral movement that is *700 TIMES GREATER* than the simple rotation of the earth! How can they show just *_ROTATIONAL_* movement? Give this one 'minor issue' some real thought.
      It's almost like the earth (upon which that camera is located) actually isn't moving at all, and just the stars above us are. Therefore only one movement is captured. That is what these pictures prove.

      Dielfon Elletab Месяц назад

      +Scorer Scored You'll have to point me towards a link of scientists saying they've lost that technology, I haven't heard of that.
      In reality they've lost the funding to go to the moon. There's not much point of sending people to the moon any more for one off missions when Mars is the next big place to go. Longer scale moon base missions would be a good next step but there is simply not the funding for it.
      And by the way I'll just point out too that NASA still does go to the moon fairly regularly (just not sending people).
      For instance this year there was a NASA mission that passed close by the moon for a gravity assist. A few years ago there were a series of orbiters sent to the moon.
      There was even an impactor in 2009 - a vessel intentionally crashed into the surface to attempt to analyse the interior structure of the moon through the vibrations caused by the impact.
      And then of course there is China who just in 2013 had a soft landing rover reach the moon, and India who in recent years are getting more into the space game, as well as Japan and even (surprisingly enough) Luxembourg with a flyby mission.
      So in reality for the science being conducted at the moment humans are just too expensive to send to the moon and most of what they can do can be done by robotic missions (as well as plenty they cannot)

      A white man traveling in Uganda looks around and everyone he sees is black, does that prove he must be black too? Military troops crossing a field suddenly notice a sign that has "LAND MINES" written on it, does the fact that they haven't found a single one yet mean there are none? I've never been struck by lightning, so is it safe to keep playing golf in a lightning storm?
      Just because the moon appears to be a sphere doesn't mean stars are. All that it means is that the moon is. It doesn't _mean_ anything more then that.
      Now, you made a claim that "It has been proven by science that the Earth is round". Toward the bottom of this page I have included links to government, military and NASA .pdf documents where they use phrases like "flat, non-rotating earth" or "stationary atmosphere over a flat plain". Along with the below links I provide the page number (for your convenience) where the words can be found.
      So, you need to argue with these guys (.gov .mil .edu) because even their own documents and science is based upon a "flat non-rotating earth". Download the .pdf and do a search for those words. Then ask yourself: Why would these documents and scientists need to take into consideration what does not exist?
      Or, are they taking into account what they know to be reality, even if you've been told the opposite?
