Elon Musk’s SpaceX launch on Tuesday, Feb. 6th from Cape Canaveral, FL has been blowing people’s minds ever since the Falcon Heavy lifted off into space.
It’s also been blowing Flat Earther’s theories out of the water.
Why is there no Flat Mars Society!?

Musk has had a long-standing feud with the society, which believes the Earth in not a sphere and is, in fact, a flat surface.
They claim that all of the images that have been transmitted for decades are all just a hoax by NASA and the government and everything you’ve seen of Earth from satellite pictures has been Photoshopped.
Hi Elon, thanks for the question. Unlike the Earth, Mars has been observed to be round.
We hope you have a fantastic day!

They were really proud of themselves for their answer to Musk’s Twitter query except that they forgot one tiny detail: The Earth has been observed to be round.
Aside from the millions of photos that have been taken since the 60’s, there are eyewitness accounts from astronauts who hail from all over the world – not just (from what they call) the “propaganda machine” known as NASA.

Musk, along with thousands of other people, have tweeted and RTed the live streaming video of the red Tesla Roadster that is oribiting the solar system as you read this, and has shown the Earth continuously from the backseat of the car.
That’s still not enough to change the Flat Earthers’ minds, apparently.
