    I respect him for taking space exploration into his own hands and wanting to see something for himself,

    you can admire madness, but its still madness. Don Quixote was both noble and admirable, but he was still crazy as a shit house rat with rabies

    i'd like to be the city clerk when he goes to get his permit...."one permit to fire a spaceship from the local park please."
    "will you be achieving orbit?"
    "no, just want to go high enough to get some pictures of the earth being flat."...............

    And he says noone ever made it to orbit before, it's just actors.

    i don't know why people have to invent things to be concerned about. isn't there enough real things to worry any normal person?
    terrorism, global warming, pesticides killing bees, gang activity, diseases mutating so the medicines we have now are useless, people all over the globe killing other people because they don't like them..........isn't that enough to worry about? you really have to invent shit that doesn't exist to worry about, too?

    The only images of the earth NASA gives us are fake. Go to youtube and look at ISS and tell me it's not fake. None of you have proof of a Globe Earth it's just what you been indoctrinated with. A waste of flesh is a KOOL-AID drinker who believes what they are told to believe. Your television is for entertainment and propaganda not for education. It's always been that way.

    look at venus or mars with a telescope. do it for several days in a row. mark where it rises and sets each night. mark its path through the sky.
    there are two explainations for their movements. either we're on a sphere thats turning as the other planets are moving, or we're on a pretty much stationary object, and everything else in the solar system is on a corkscrew trajectory, twisting back and forth in its path through the sky....you tell me which makes more sense.

    Totally. I disrespect him for not climbing to a high enough point (air balloon, tower, whatever) to see the curvature of the earth and understand what that must mean.

    haha yes very true, he has a good business idea, he could perfect his craft and then bring flat earthers to the point to see for themselves,

    I watched some YouTube stuff and even at 80,000 it was hard to see unfortunately. I was hoping to find some high altitude balloon shots

    It depends on your location relative to sea-level...I've seen it from video atop a tower. From google: "It is possible to see the effect of the curvature of the earth from sea level (ships disappearing over the horizon). To actually see the curvature directly (ie to be able tosee the horizon as an arc, rather than a straight line) requires an altitude of over 50,000 feet."

    Wait backup. I am very interested in this new corkscrew theory. Sounds explainable. I’m going with stationary earth!

    Polaris the North Star never moves the stars in the dome rotate around it. Sailors used it for centuries for navigation.

    NASA conspiracy theories. They’re fun, too.

    People can’t figure out how to build a rocket, so therefore there are no astronauts, right?

    People can’t fathom a sphere, so the world must be flat, right?

    Idiots
