Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains How to Prove The Earth is Round

Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains How to Prove The Earth is Round

Although talk of a flat Earth appeared to take off within the sports world (hello, Kyrie Irving), last year, sudden interest in the movement goes beyond 2017.

Since Neil deGrasse Tyson's big claim to fame is how he can break down astrophysics into laymen's terms, he's had to address the claim that Earth is flat on more than one occasion for the laymen who believe it. I'm asking anyone out there with a friend or colleague who's a flat-earther - show this to them, flood their messengers, spam their email inboxes, reverberate the facts in a verbal fashion until they don't want to be friends with you any more. excessive?

It's easy to see why Clark is skeptical that anyone actually still subscribes to the flat Earth theory in light of the logic presented by Tyson. While "we have a video from space - of a rotating spherical earth", the people who believe that the earth is flat do not believe it.

Bad news, flat-earthers. Neil deGrasse Tyson is here to prove once again the Earth is indeed round. He also said that some flat-Earthers believe the moon is round even though they think Earth is flat.

Jeff Hardy Arrested for DWI
Jeff allegedly struck about "105 feel of guardrail before the back end of the vehicle spun out 90 degrees". He was released a little over an hour later, with a 30-day revocation of his driver's license.

He added that spheres can seem to be distorted because of how fast they are rotating, but most of the bodies in the universe are spheres or close to being spherical in shape. Scientists generally believe that asteroids do not have enough gravity to draw their masses into the shape of a sphere.

The segment could easily stop there, but Tyson digs deeper into evidence of the Earth's roundness, including shadows it casts during lunar eclipses.

The shadow of earth at the moon is always round shaped and can be seen when the moon enters and leaves the eclipse.

The flat earth society is composed of people who promote the idea that the earth is flat.
