Amateur Rocket Shows the Curvature of the Planet from 56 Miles Altitude

A team of amateur rocketeers show us what they did on their first test flight without any help from NASA. They built a two-stage amateur rocket which flew to 293,488 ft (55.6 mi/89.5 km). This rocket is called MESOS (short for mesosphere) because it is designed to fly there. The mesosphere is the third layer of Earth’s atmosphere situated between 31 and 53 miles (50-85 km) above the surface. The amazing part about this rocket is it reached this altitude on less than 41,000 N-s of total impulse (full O-class high power rocket motor)! Capable of carrying the equivalent of a 16 oz can of beer/energy drink as a payload, this rocket flew two GoPro Hero 9s cameras with modified rectilinear lenses. Both stages are recovered via parachutes and are reusable. This video covers the development and the launch of this record breaking rocket. I hope you enjoy it!

SpaceX launch clearly shows the curvature of the Earth

I recently have had discussion with a few people on the claim by some (Bible believing Christians included) that the Earth is geologically flat. This is referred to as the Flat Earth (FE) claim. Yeah, I know it is very bizarre. One people even asked if this is a real thing. It is unfortunately true. But several of it proponents are atheist anti-Christians. So it is strange that that there are Bible believing Christians believe their rambling nonsense.

One of the arguments is that no one has ever seen the curvature of the spherical earth.

FEers argue that nothing NASA has shown can be trusted. They say that NASA uses green screens, Photoshop and all sorts of tricks to hide the alleged fact that the earth is a disk and not a sphere.

This video shows Earth from space from SpaceX spacecraft used to launch a stack of 60 Starlink satellites. SpaceX is a private company with Elon Musk as CEO. The launch occurred on January 29 at 9:06 a.m. EST (USA), or 14:06 UTC. You can clearly see the curvature of the earth.

Besides I don’t think the SpaceX Starlink company would have spent millions of dollars to put their own constellation of satellites into space if this was all a giant hoax. They would feel pretty conned. Considering that they are launching their satellites it is quite ludicrous. Ultimately the SpaceX plans to launch a global network 1,584 satellites (in the first stage) to orbit at about 300 km altitude to provide worldwide internet services at high speed broadband.
