Flat Earth Q&A / So I watched the SpaceX launch....
« on: June 15, 2016, 02:16:09 PM »
So I watched the SpaceX launch today and several thoughts crawled through the cobwebs. Flat earth would have us believe that those 2 companies that paid millions of dollars to build and launch their satellites into orbit are in on the hoax? They paid all that money to continue fooling all of us while they really built ground based communications that do the real work and not the fake boxes they had pretend launched into orbit? And SpaceX puts on these live webcasts to trick us into thinking they are putting things in orbit but are really using cgi to fake it?

I'm just really confused on the why.

Quote from: teh wiki
On the sinking ship, Rowbotham describes a mechanism by which the hull is hidden by the angular limits of perception - the ship will appear to intersect with the vanishing point and become lost to human perception as the hull's increasingly shallow path creates a tangent on which the hull is so close to the surface of the ocean that the two are indistinguishable. The ship's hull gets so close to the surface of the water as it recedes that they appear to merge together. Where bodies get so close together that they appear to merge is called the Vanishing Point. The Vanishing Point is created when the perspective lines are angled less than one minute of a degree. Hence, this effectively places the vanishing point a finite distance away from the observer.

I'd buy human perception for a boat. However a telescope can overcome what of mere human eyes can see. it enhances things far away so that above quote is quite irrelevant to what I posted.

Flat Earth Debate / telescope and a helicopter

Helicopter goes out 6 miles and has to be 20 something feet off the surface for the person with the telescope to see them from the shore.
What's the flat earth explanation for this?

The show was real. I watched it as well. Helicopter had to be 24 feet in the air to be seen 6 miles away.
