The joint Nasa and SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carried astronauts from US soil to the International Space Station for the first time in nine years and for the whole time was being shown on YouTube. It was a pretty amazing moment and the first time a private space company took humans to space and just as a little aside, they showed an earth that, in a weird twist, was the shape of a ball.
Minutes into the launch, it was pretty clear to see what the people of Twitter were getting at as ‘FlatEarth’ began trending. You may have thought that this was people continuing to back their dangerously stupid hypothesis, but it was instead them being mocked by people with an element of sense.
The funniest thing about all of this is that some Flat Earthers were still trying to convince themselves that all of this was faked, as one of their Facebook groups really kicked into gear.
The best part is when some prick says that “they forgot to add Antarctica”. F**k off.
Why would anyone waste their time believing this stuff? Why does anyone think that this is something literally anyone would try to hide?
If the Earth was flat, I’m certain the governments of the world wouldn’t try to make us believe it was round for some reason. They would have no reason to. Nothing would change except globes would look more like plates.
Sick of it.
