The Earth Is Round. Here's a Coin To Help Prove It


After rapper B.o.B.'s Twitter outburst about the Earth being flat, science educators leapt to their feet to let him know where he went wrong. Even Neil DeGrasse Tyson jumped into the fray to help him out, only to find himself sampled in a new song about the Earth's "obvious flatness."

In the aftermath, the BBC and Popular Science both gave great quick summaries about how we know that the Earth is round, presumably shaking their heads in sorrow the entire time.

Ultimately, though, Flat Earthers are most convinced by one thing: their own eyes. In their minds, when they look at the Earth, they see a flat surface. Why believe a bunch of scientists instead of trusting your own eyes? The answer, of course, is that we are too close to Earth to see that curvature. If you don't believe me, look at a gosh darn coin.

Now, let's close in on its edge, where it is undoubtedly round.
