Did you know
that thousands of years ago, before we thought that we lived on a flat
plate-like Earth, where one could fall off of the edge, people believed the
Earth was sphere-shaped? Even though there are countless images of our planet,
and numerous videos which have been recorded from space, there are still some
who argue the Earth is in fact flat.
around the globe still CONTINUE to debate whether or not our planet is Flat.
According to many, there is a supermassive, highly sophisticated conspiracy
going on which has been put in place from preventing us from finding out that
Earth is flat. In fact, those who believe the Earth is flat are convinced that
most videos from NASA are in fact, the product of CGI and that there aren’t any
videos that show the exact shape of the Earth.
most beautiful images of our planet was taken on December 24, 1968, when the crew
of the Apollo 8 mission, snapped one of the most famous images of our planet
from space. Called “The Earthrise,” the image was taken by Astronaut William
Anders and shows what our planet looks like from space. Earthrise was the first
color image of our planet from space.
everyone is convinced that our planet is round. In fact, there are some who are
convinced that the images we get from NASA are nothing more than intricately
photoshopped images of Earth. This puts the ‘flat Earth theory’ as one of the
greatest conspiracy theories in the history of our planet.
those who believe the Earth is flat, a disc with the Arctic Circle in the
center with a wall of ice of 150 meters around the edge in Antarctica. Day and
night are explained as the sun, and the moon is spheres measuring 51 kilometers
and moving in a circular motion 4989 above the plane of the flat Earth. Like
spotlights, these celestial spheres illuminate different parts of the planet in
a cycle of 24 hours. In the flat earth, there is also an invisible “anti-Moon”
that obscures the moon during lunar eclipses.
more images and video emerge from space, the theory is having a rough time
keeping up with the evidence. This video recently filmed aboard the
international space station –which orbits our planet at the height of around
400 kilometers— shows us just how lucky we all are to live on Earth.
time you see Planet Earth from space, it’s stunning; when you’ve spent 534 days
in space—more than any other American—it still is! On his most recent trip the
International Space Station NASA astronaut Jeff Williams used an Ultra High
Definition video camera that he pointed at the planet 250 miles below; here he
shares some of those images, and talks about the beauty of the planet, the
variety of things to see, and the value of sharing that perspective with
everyone who can’t go to orbit in person.
