Do you have any empirical evidence to prove this outlandish claim?
How dare you have the audacity to demand my deposition. I've never even heard of you.

He did not orbit the earth; he was shot up into the air on top of a rocket. Good for him.

On April 12, 1961, a Russian cosmonaut named Yuri Gagarin made space history when he became the first human being to blast off into space, aboard a bell-shaped capsule known as Voystok 1.


April 12, 2011 - April 12, 1969 = 50 years.

I imagine, in much the same way that the moon orbits:

In 108 minutes, he circled the Earth, passing over the Pacific Ocean, the Straits of Magellan, the Atlantic and Africa before Voystok 1 reentered the Earth's atmosphere and landed near Engels, Russia.

Vongeo is a wanker, he wears a wanker hat; he always smells like urine and he thinks the Earth is flat.

No longer is this sentence is cut in half. Jekra!

I don't think so.

And I don't think you exist, but that is just plain wrong isn't it?
Isaac Newton anyone?

Oh entirely not so, I've tried my whole life to not exist. To transcend some defintion of what it is to be. Its quite bettering (though it does give you a false sense of being better than everyone else(and its quite crushing when you realise you can't do something like spell superiorty). In fact, my irregulatoin in existance makes me think in a lacking of others existance. This semi-deep construct of knowledge makes me beleive the earth is flat. Not to say I couldn't think it was round in my mindset. Ethos i think.

Why not?  I've not quoted anything that denies a FE... is it not possible that he could have gone high enough to get caught in the current of Universal Acceleration and orbited around the disk of the earth if his altitude was sufficiently high enough in a circular path above the flat surface?

Besides.  Horatio only asked for Empirical Evidence, and I've provided it.  It is up to you whether or not you choose to examine that evidence and determine its worth to you.

If the flat earth was rotating at one rotation per 108 min that would produce a measurable centrifugal force would it not?

Yes; which is not observed. Which is why no serious theorist proposes such a rotation.

Thus... He circled the earth rather than the earth circling him.  Hence, an orbit.
