Flat Earthers will sail to Antarctica to find the planet's 'edge'

A report from the Guardian points out the irony in flat Earth believers hopping on a ship for a trip to Antarctica: ships navigate the seas with systems that rely on a round Earth. It's said to be 164 feet tall, and thousands of feet thick - I couldn't make this shit up if I tried. Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul, who has been in trouble before for trivialising suicide and making flippant remarks about homosexuality, has now announced he has converted to the Flat Earth cause. It's not like you just go there, and you can just peek over it.

This means that the Sun, Moon, and stars are all packed in this dome. He explains that the heavenly bodies are all contained inside the high dome. "So there's no way to actually fall off of the Earth".

The group intends to locate the ice wall they believe marks the edge of the planet.

"All we have to do to shut this debate down once and for all is get the distance of the coast of Antarctica", Jay Decasby, a prominent Flat-Earther, told Forbes.

Global Positioning System relies on a network of dozens of satellites orbiting thousands of miles above Earth; signals from the satellites beam down to the receiver inside of a Global Positioning System device, and at least three satellites are required to pinpoint a precise position because of Earth's curvature, Keijer explained.

He said: "I have sailed two million miles, give or take". Here are the potential problems flat earthers may encounter.

"The USSR and U.S. were obsessed with beating each other into space to the point that each faked their accomplishments in an attempt to keep pace". Paul also spent time during the Flat Earth International Conference filming for his upcoming documentary The Flat Earth: to the Edge and Back.

The expedition is hoping to reach the "end of the world". "On a flat earth, it would be over 60K". The idea was first raised in ancient cultures, including the Romans, until the classical period.

But in diagrams shared on the FES website, the planet appears as a pancake-like disk with the North Pole smack in the center and an edge "surrounded on all sides by an ice wall that holds the oceans back". Others claim it has a downward orbit.

Still, one has to wonder why a conspiracy club like the Flat Earth Society hasn't just ponied up the money to prove its theory all along.
