OK JackBlack, you are assuming a RE. I completely misunderstood.

Well, then, this is still a worthwhile experiment. In FE, the balloon would be able to see beyond the "ice wall".

That depends on what FE model you ascribe to, and what magic that model uses for its horizon.
If they have some magic to make the horizon the same distance away as it would be for a RE, then you could expect to see basically the same result for both a RE and a FE.

Of course, there is no convincing those who adhere to tautologies, but it would bring us (them?) closer to seeing Antarctica as a continent with coastlines that recede on each side rather than fan out in a circle, and demonstrate the inability of seeing past the ice wall.

So how a about it FEs and FEttes, are you up for some crowdfunding?

That would put you in the same category as pedophile perverts like John Davis, NSS, robots like Stash, Shifter, and victimized kids like Alexey.
