They remove themselves from the bus which causes the bus to do nothing until those who remove themselves smash into the waiting external sponges which compresses them.
Man, got a lot of catching up to do with this thread. Still, the quote above is my kind of science!

Why don't you spend some time writing all this stuff down in a book instead of on here and get it published?
Pseudoscience is trendy. Reiki healing, antivaccing, and FE.

Could net a good amount, the book.

Well, and I do know this is not everybody, nor does it portray the whole of the US, but to me it is still awesomely stupid, and trve Americana:



Muskís deloreanesque monstrosity could make that activity a tad less prevalent if it propagates.

I can only imagine how much fun itíd be to cycle, and get hit by one of those good olí boys. Yee-haw, motherfuckers!

As of late, it would appear, the strongest evidence for FE has been:
i) The Sun is 10 kilometers away
ii) Elon Musk is in league with Satan
iii) Lack of understanding of fisheye lenses
iv) Vast seas of yoghurt and ghee
v) Qantas killing its passengers by the thousands

In my opinion those do not make RE tremble, but, as I have been lead to believe, the FE juggernaut canít be stopped; ítis the dawn of a new and better era.

Cybertruck is one of them, isnít it?

Actually, about the status of the production model: I've tried to look for information whether or not the one shown to us is "road legal" (I lack a better word)? Is it pedestrian safe in all markets what with all the safety regulations and such?
It has quite a bit of stuff to sort out before it's legal.  Mirrors for starters (not allowed just cameras), the headlights, the steering wheel and probably a ton of other stuff.

No friggen pickup truck is "pedestrian safe" - which is why pedestrian deaths in the US have been steadily rising for years.
Oh yeah, it is missing mirrors. Did not know of the steering wheel as Iíve only seen pics of the body.

And had no idea the pedestrian deaths have gone up. Then again I am quite shielded from excessive amount of pickups here. But it makes sense. Can imagine how a body will react to an F-150 attack.

Oh man, totallackey and wise are out of the loop.

Here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_exploration
https://www.nasa.gov/
https://www.esa.int/
https://global.jaxa.jp/
https://www.spacex.com/

You could start with those. And there is a lot more! A lot of cool stuff has happened since the first tentative steps.

Only in movies.
In real life, too. And quite many of them, actually.

No one ever told you?! :O

Okay.

Thinking it through...

Assume the earth is a sphere...

Asking the logical follow up question..."Why assume it is a sphere when the first thing I see (flatness) is clearly in front of my own two eyes?"

Dump the silly and stupid assumption!
And that is what most actually thought at first. Then they started investigating, and got wiser! It might have gotten too sciencey for some, true. Still, even those happily enjoy the fruits of othersí labour!

I did not know Musk has changed his name. News to me!

Yeah, I tried to look for the same information. But it is interesting. And Tunguska has always been a cool subject.

Yes, and it does not quite cut it.

15
I guess you could go further than the ISS to get a better picture. Moon, for example.

16
Yeah, well. As we know all the ancient peoples had eerie powers and science yet undreamed of. Or something.

But as said, all that only makes the case for RE stronger, in my opinion. No matter the Sun is, what, ten klicks away.

17
This whole thing has left me flabbergasted. I thought sceptimatic had some odd technical issue with the photo. But no, it was just another example of denial stemming from complete lack of even rudimentary knowledge of the subject matter. Somewhat shocked still.

Oh, and scepti! The 210˚ Laowa lens costs 199 dollars, and ones with 180˚ are less, I am pretty sure. Should be within the grasp of even a flat Earther. If you want to reproduce ISS shots.

18
It'd be really easy if we would just get it!

19
To me it seems you are not able to grasp (super) wide angle lenses.

https://www.opticallimits.com/m43/1062-laowa4f28fish

210į angle of view. He has the lens and camera on his belly, and we can see his legs and face.



The one most likely used in the photos is 180į, like has been mentioned here. You should have no problem after youíve wrapped your head around that.  As a comparison your eyes produce a binocular field of view of 114į.

21

I do not see much space around Earth there. It is pretty tightly framed. Cupola, a sliver of space, and Earth.

I really am at a loss as to what it is that bothers you so much. Could it be because you do not know much about the subject?

22
You can see the can quite well, canít you? True, it is technically a crap photo, but it quite clear one can see the inside of the can there.

And you could have admitted to not ever using a fisheye lens, maybe even a camera. Dutchy was like you it came to photography. No idea how any of it works, but dammit if it ainít all fake!

23
Ever used a fisheye lens? Take a few pics. Of some round fruit, for example. You can bring it pretty close before you see nothing else.

Sandokhan posts here, and on the other FE forum. I saw he posted something in scienceforums.net, but the thread was locked for obvious reasons.

25
Of course! And a cylinder is a cupola. And no matter the angle of view.

I guess it is best you post a YouTube video of something here.

The first pic shows the whole fruit and itís surroundings even though the angle of view is not especially large. The circular image is framed to show the cupola and Earth. Not sure what there is to misunderstand, yet you seemed to find a way. Kudos, I guess.

26
Had to destroy a perfectly good can of Coke. Hope you are happy.



Did you find a lens already?

Oh, and my lens and camera yield a horizontal angle of view of 94.5į compared to NASAís 132į (when comparing full frame fisheyes.) So not exactly comparable.

The setup from the front:



27
Might take a few as I do not have a cylinder handy. I will figure out something. Donít worry. You could source something as well as you have the burden of proof, Iíd say.

28
You could try it yourself, too. My crap lens is 8mm on a Micro Four Thirds sensor, the one they most likely use on the ISS is an 8mm as well, but on a full frame sensor. So it is a lot wider.

Buy or rent one of those, slap it on a FF Nikon body, get the table of your choice, and start shooting!

29


Granted, it is a not a large table, but the distance is less than a foot, too.

Also should be noted my lens does not take a full circle pic. So I cannot get as wide as the one shot from the ISS.

30
And the picture I took?
