Flat Earther Challenges Internet, Offers $100K To Anyone Who Can Prove The Earth Is Round

“If you can do it, $100,000 to the winner.”

As if flat Earth believers aren’t ridiculous enough, one of them recently challenged the internet and offered a huge amount of money to anyone who can prove that our planet is indeed round. In a YouTube post, someone who goes by username Flat Out Hero offered $100,000 to whoever meets the challenge.

Sounds like an easy thing to do, right? Well it definitely is and as we learn below, someone immediately rose up to it and now he’s asking the Flat Earther for the prize money.

In the video description, Flat Out Hero wrote:

“Check it out. Here’s the challenge: Using flight charts, y’know, the only navigational maps that pilots can use to navigate, the only ones that can actually get them to where they’re going. Yeah, flight charts.”

He then explained the challenge in detail on the video and added:

“Map that out, using the only navigational maps that we know. We can’t use a globe to navigate, but we know that we can use flight charts to navigate. So, map that flight round. If you can do it, $100,000 to the winner.”

It didn’t take long before someone posted a response, proving that the Flat Earther was indeed wrong.

User Wolfie6020 uploaded a 2-minute video entitled ‘This Flat Earther owes me $100,000 – I completed his challenge – pay up buddy’ mapping out a flight chart journey which pilots use for navigation.

He wrote:

“So Mr Flat Out Hero, your challenge has been answered. The requirements, as you stated them, have been satisfied. It is now your turn to honor your challenge and pay me the $100,000 dollars.”

According to Wolfie6020, he will donate half of the prize money to a children’s hospital and use the remaining fr his own.

“Let’s see if you’re a man of your word,” he added.

Earth is Sucking More Water In Its Interior Than Previously Thought, Scientists Discover

We’re talking about TRILLIONS of tons of water here.

In a research recently published in the Nature journal, we learn that our planet has been swallowing trillions of tons of water into its interior because of tectonic plates collision beneath the ocean. The researchers collected information about the rumblings over a year’s period and they were able to collect 19 passive seismographs across the Mariana Trench.

Additionally, they likewise gathered data “from seven island-based seismographs,” the Daily Mail reported, which allowed them to have “a more detailed picture of how the Pacific plate bends into the trench, revealing new insight on how the rocks hold onto water deep beneath the surface.”

Scientists Want To Dim The Sun To Stop Global Warming

The shocking proposal suggests spraying sun-dimming chemicals into the Earth’s atmosphere.

It looks like scientists are willing to try anything to stop climate change. A new idea suggests dimming the sun to deal with global warming. This means spraying chemicals into the Earth's atmosphere to block out UV rays. The process could significantly cut down on global warming. However, it might pose a completely new danger to future generations.

The idea has been proposed by researchers from Harvard and Yale in an effort to combat climate change. The technique known as stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI) requires spraying large amounts of sulfate particles into the Earth's lower stratosphere. The chemicals would be injected into altitudes as high as 12 miles.

Scientists believe that the technique can effectively cut the effects of climate change in half.

First Image From The Surface Of Mars Revealed After NASA’s InSight Successfully Landed

Wow.

It has been a long curiosity as to what Mars actually looks like. Images of the planet from afar have been shared to the public multiple times, but nobody really knows what the surface of the Red Planet really looks like until now.

NASA has successfully landed a probe on the surface of Mars. After a nearly seven-month journey and gripping landing sequence, NASA’s InSight lander has already returned its first image of the Martian surface.
