The Earth is Flat and Not Spherical

mirror: From their position on the International Space Station, astronauts are treated to a unique view of our planet that most people will never have the chance to see.

The ISS orbits Earth at a height of around 250 miles, meaning the space station makes around 16 trips around Earth every single day.

Now, one NASA astronaut on board the ISS has snapped a stunning photo of our planet from the station’s Cupola, an observatory module.

Doug Hurley, who has been on the ISS for just over a month now, tweeted the beautiful photo, writing: “I never get tired of this view from the Cupola as our orbit transitions into night.”

Many amazed fans replied, expressing their delight at the beautiful photo.

One user replied: “I don’t think I could ever get tired of just the photo. So beautiful and breathtaking. Thank you for sharing. Stay safe and god speed.”

Another added: “Breathtaking and peaceful,” while one joked: “Must be nice to be anywhere but earth right now.”

However, it seems that many Flat Earthers weren’t convinced by Col Hurley’s photo.

One replied: “It looks flat from my angle!”

And another wrote: “Do NASA make you photoshop the earths curvature in before you send, or do they do it in post production? We all know it’s flat!”

While the Flat Earth conspiracy has garnered huge attention in recent years, humans have actually known that the Earth is round for more than 2,000 years.

NASA explained: “Today, scientists use geodesy, which is the science of measuring Earth’s shape, gravity and rotation.

“Geodesy provides accurate measurements that show Earth is round. With GPS and other satellites, scientists can measure Earth’s size and shape to within a centimeter.

“Pictures from space also show Earth is round like the moon.”
