    7 Ways to Prove the Earth Is Round (Without Launching a Satellite)

    "
    Proving Earth is round
    Rapper B.o.B wants to crowdfund his own satellite and launch it into space to find out, once and for all, whether the Earth is flat or round. As a flat-Earth conspiracy theorist, the Georgia-based musician is betting on flat, but his $1 million call for cash on GoFundMe has raised only about $2,000 in its first five days, the first $1,000 pledged by B.o.B himself."

    This is so weird I can't help thinking it is some sort of Spinal Tap type joke. I mean, the whole thing about a satellite is that it goes round and gets back to where it started. What does he think is going happen to his satellite? One too many spliffs, perhaps?

    Huey Dewey and Louie are confused, as I am also. What equipment will be carried by this satellite which has not already been sent into space?

    Obviously cameras are going to be useless since there are already millions of photos showing a round Earth

    Although it just occurred to me this genius will be involved in picking the mission of the satellite and his idea of the type of equipment needed to prove a flat Earth

    I am guessing he will be able to pick the orbit he requires. My suggestion would be for the satellite to do a few laps over the ice wall at the edge and beam live to all TV networks for free

    How will the orbit planning team keep a straight face when he ask "Can you fly under the Earth so we can get a look at what's there please?"?

    I look forward to seeing the elephants and the Giant Star Turtle, the Great A' Tuin, for real

    It will be even more spectacular than the first moon landing considering we never went to the Moon

    Sad Terry Pratchett not here for this historic moment

    I'd love to hear more about his theory and why it would work. I'll try to keep this thread updated. Sadly, GoFundMe has become GoBleepYourTheory and frozen the account until he can provide a rational basis for his plans.

    I would imagine that he, like probably a lot of the other Earth-bound laypeople, would be more convinced by seeing his own experiment in-action, than by just taking the word of someone else. He would be less skeptical that the results could be faked or massaged before being released.

    If he's a flat-Earther, this would be pretty difficult to do without contradicting himself even before the sat ever left the ground.

    It may be an urban myth, but I think I've heard that the Flat Earth Society claims to have members all around the globe.
