http://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/this-man-is-about-to-launch-himself-in-his-homemade-rocket-to-prove-the-earth-is-flat/ar-BBFt2Ir?li=AAnZ9Ug&OCID=HPDHP

While I admire this man's courage, AND his willingness to actually seek empirical evidence rather than simply listen to the scientifically illiterate nonsense provided by flat earthers on the internet, I find myself AMAZED that he hasn't realised that there are far easier, far less dangerous, and far less expensive ways of proving whether the Earth is flat or spherical.

Why doesn't he just hire an aircraft, head west, and keep on the same heading? He'll eventually fly over the airfield he took off from and he'll have his proof.

What an idiot.




Or, I imagine he can just climb a high enough surface and note that he can see more of the earth because he'll be looking "beneath the curve."
