Neil deGrasse Tyson is a very popular astrophysicist, author, and science communicator and now he has something he’d like the flat-Earthers to see.
As a matter of fact, it’s something that they’ll never see, nor anyone else, at least not in this real world.
More recently, theories about the Earth being flat are everywhere. There is even a Modern Flat-Earthers’ society which consist of individuals who promote the idea that the Earth is flat rather than an oblate spheroid. Although these groups date from the middle of the 20th century, in recent times their theories are supported by celebrities and things are just getting out of control.
Neil deGrasse Tyson posted this image on his twitter account that has made the rounds online over the years.
The picture shows a lunar eclipse, or the Earth casting a rectangular shadow across its surface from the left, which he captions “A Lunar Eclipse flat-Earthers have never seen”.
In the 21st century, while living in a world with advanced technology and scientifically proven facts, somehow there are still people who believe this theory to be true.
The photo pokes fun at those, including celebrities such as B.o.B. or Freddie Flintoff, who reportedly believe that the Earth is not spherical-shaped.
