[EXPERIMENT] 50km weather balloon
« on: September 09, 2015, 09:58:19 AM »
I think a final experimental proof for the FE or the RE would be to send a weather balloon to 50km, and to examine if we notice a curvature compatible with the RE diameter, or no curvature at all, or even something else.

I don't have the money to send by myself this balloon, and, even if I do, FEers would say the video is a fake, but if the FEers launch their own weather balloon and publish here the video (no photo, only video, as photo can more easily be modified), we could get a final answer about the FE/RE question.

Well, it would be really hard, as the curvature would be really small, and you would need a lot of $$$ to find a lens that does not distort.

The curvature would not be so small. At only 30km, we already see that : https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/83/Picture_taken_at_aprox._100%2C000_feet_above_Oregon_by_Justin_Hamel_and_Chris_Thompson.jpg

I could very well be wrong, but that picture looks deceiving to me. It looks more curved then it actually is. I don't have any graphic programs, all I've got is paint. Using the ruler on the side, I drew red tic marks across the horizon. Or what I could guess was the horizon. You can see it only curves downwards near the right side of the picture. I would think if the Earth is really round, you would see more curvature then what we are seeing. In fact if the picture was tilted a little to the left, I'd doubt you would see hardly any curvature at all. Maybe someone with a better program could do a better job than me.

Possibly tilted slightly to the left some, yet if you pay close attention to your middle red dots, they are not aligned anyway(some lower then some higher in a row), but they dip down a bit further into the horizon line that the far left dots.

I placed the dots the best I could using MicroSoft Paint. That is the only graphical program I have.I'm hoping someone has a better program then me that could place a dotted line across the horizon. They could also rock the picture a little to the left to make it more level. If someone could do that, I believe you wouldn't see any curvature at all.

Man, those dots are nowhere close to being in line. Other than that, I guess it depends on how you look at it. The "peak" seems to be near the left side of the picture anyway.

The FE'ers would simply apply the "faked" label to any photographic evidence of curvature, just as they do now to all pictures from altitudse which show it, from balloons to spacecraft.
Anyway, the curvature can be seen from ground level - simply check the level of the horizon with a theodolite and you'll see it's lower than the 180 degrees it would be at on a flat earth.

Just take a straight edge or a ruler across the center of the red dots and you will see they aren't too far off. That to me proves the Earth ain't no globe. You would have to be a moron to think it was.

If the red dors are placed in a straight line, that proves that there is a curvature since the horizon obviously does not follow them in a straight line, but curves away especially on the right side.

I believe we can all agree that if the Earth was a globe, It would have more curvature than is shown in this picture. None of the REers say the Earth is a perfect globe. I'm sure that little downward slope on the right side is just probably a little indent that would straighten out to a nice flat surface if more of the Earth was shown.

I don't agree with that. The picture is not taken very far from earth's surface, only 30 km away (compare to being 6401km away from earth's center).

Hi Yendor

I've used a suitable program to straighten the picture so that the positions of where the horizon line meets the lefthand and righthand edges of the picture are exactly level. And then, as you can see, I've placed a straight line across the picture.

You mentioned in a previous post, that if the picture was made level, then hardly any curvature would be noticeable at all?  This is a strange thing to say, as levelling the picture does not change the amount of curvature shown in the picture.

As you can observe for yourself, the curvature is obvious for all to see.

Thanks so much, for submitting this picture, which is a very nice example of the earth's curvature.

What lens was on the camera? Was there condensation on the lens .  If you compared differant stills from footage filmed as a balloon rises to 115 thousand ft. You get fluctuations,  as the camara can not be kept completely horizontal . On its journey upward.  Your claim that one photo proves a curvature, is laughable. Lets see the other stills for comparison.

The FE'ers would simply apply the "faked" label to any photographic evidence of curvature, just as they do now to all pictures from altitudse which show it, from balloons to spacecraft.
Anyway, the curvature can be seen from ground level - simply check the level of the horizon with a theodolite and you'll see it's lower than the 180 degrees it would be at on a flat earth.

Just take a straight edge or a ruler across the center of the red dots and you will see they aren't too far off. That to me proves the Earth ain't no globe. You would have to be a moron to think it was.


Hi Yendor

I've used a suitable program to straighten the picture so that the positions of where the horizon line meets the lefthand and righthand edges of the picture are exactly level. And then, as you can see, I've placed a straight line across the picture.

You mentioned in a previous post, that if the picture was made level, then hardly any curvature would be noticeable at all?  This is a strange thing to say, as levelling the picture does not change the amount of curvature shown in the picture.

As you can observe for yourself, the curvature is obvious for all to see.

Thanks so much, for submitting this picture, which is a very nice example of the earth's curvature.





Chtwrone,
I only posted the picture, xaexae is the one who provided the link to it. I hate to be the one to tell you this, but I believe you rotated the picture a little too much. The line shows that the picture is actually a little too high no on the right side now opposed to being too low on the right side before. I think you should rotate the picture so it is a little lower on the right and it will look much better. After you do that, I believe it will show the Earth nearly perfectly flat, as we all know it actually is. Thanks for all you effort though.

Wouldn't that be cheating? Looks like curvature to me, Even though the camera might have been tilted vertically when the picture was taken? Maybe I'm wrong but it kinda looks curved to me.
If it's flat, that would be very interesting for science

No sircool, if you line the light blue horizon or whatever it is, up with your thin black line, then the truth will be if you can see a hump in the middle of the blue horizon. I believe you will see some, but not enough to claim the Earth is round. At 100,000 ft. I believe you should see a pretty big hump in the middle of the line.

I'm I the only FEer on here that sees no hump? Would a FEer please draw a line on the picture in the correct location for me? This guy is driving me more nuts than I already am.
