Astronomy Science ~ science teaches, the Earth is shaped like a ball. Although not perfectly round, there is pressure along the axis from pole to pole so that there is a bulge around the equator.

But, what if the science is wrong, and it turns out that the Earth is flat like a plate? Will there be any difference to us? And is it true that people can fall from the rim? That said, a number of sailors in the past, including the crew of Columbus exploration, they sailed too far and fear of falling from the edge of the Earth.

Instead, Ancient Greek mathematicians have proven that the earth is round, not flat. Pythagoras in the 6th century BC, the originator of the initial idea. "If the Earth is not round but flat like a plate ... with appropriate density and thickness, living in the middle of it feels very normal (as we perceive it today)," said Michael Stevens, in serial Vsauce on YouTube.

Life will be centered in the middle of the Earth. "However, if you move to the edge, the Earth's gravity on the disc is not symmetrical, skew, encourage stronger." The video also shows what would happen if someone ran toward the edge of the Earth. It was like climbing the stairs are extremely steep.

Maybe not to cause death, but he must have been very tired and plagued by fears bounced backwards - into the center of the human planet. Stevens also refer to someone not likely to fall from the disk of the Earth. Thanks to the force of gravity! He added that the end of the world is flat. Close to the sky, so people who were there seemed to fly by plane.

As this is the situation if the earth is flat
Although it sounds ridiculous, a number of people who are members of the Flat Earth Society really sure human planet is flat shape. This is so excuse them when walking on it, the surface of this planet looks or looks and feels flat. Hence they dismissed all the evidence that shows the Earth is round, like the photographs of Earth from space.

According to them, it was nothing more than a conspiracy engineered advocates that the Earth is round regulated by the US space agency (NASA) and other government agencies. A high-level conspiracy. Photographs of the Earth, they say, processed using photoshop. GPS equipment was engineered. The goal, they have not concluded, but suspected financial motives.

One leading theory they call the Earth similar like a disc, the Arctic Circle is located in its center, and the Antarctic, a wall of ice as high as 150 feet or 45.7 meters, is located in the suburbs. They claim, NASA employs a number of people to maintain strict walls of ice, preventing anyone climb and fall of the Earth disc.

While the Earth's day and night cycle is described as follows: the sun and the moon is round-shaped object 51 kilometers in diameter, rotating at an altitude of 4,828 kilometers above the flat earth. Such as spotlights, bulbs illuminating the sky was a different part of the planet within 24 hours. Proponents of this theory also believe there is an invisible object named "antimoon" is responsible obscure form of the Moon, becomes crescent example.

Furthermore, for them, the Earth's gravitational none other than an illusion. Gravity, according to them, does not speed things down, but the disc earth who accelerate the movement of 9.8 meters per second squared, driven by a force called "dark energy".

While, what lies beneath the Earth disc is not yet known, those who believe the earth was flat, the basic assumed the Earth formed from rocks. This way of thinking group of Flat Earth Society's way of thinking "Zetetic Method", an alternative scientific method developed in the 19th century.

"Basically, this method emphasizes on reconciliation between empiricism and and rationalism, and make logical conclusions based on empirical data," said deputy chairman of the Flat Earth Society, Michael Wilmore Irish on science websites, Life's Little Mysteries. Details that they might silly and like a joke, but the supporters really think of it as a model of astronomy that makes more sense than can be found in textbooks. In short, they are not making a joke.
