  • So this little clip from about 2:40 - 2:45 in the video had me laughing out loud as I watched it repeatedly.

  • Here's an earth curve simulator.



    Let's compare what the eye level would look like at ground level vs. what it would be at 120,000 feet, which is the altitude from which Baumgertner made the Red Bull jump.  Screenshots below are taken from the simulator above.



    Now let's compare the view from within Baumgertner's capsule when he was down on earth and then when he was up at 128,000 feet (my earlier screenshot was from 120,000 ... so giving him a bit of an edge here).


    We need a horizontal reference in your picture or it will not be evidence of how the horizon behaves relative to altitude of an observer. I'm afraid no such thing exists, and that the camera is actually angled down slightly.

    Here's an actual measurement.

    Okay, now I am going to show my "guilty pleasures."  The soundtrack sounds almost exactly from Sid Meier's (yes, I know, name gives him away) Civilization Beyond Earth strategy game.
    please pray for me

    I learned today that you can download such videos with youtube-dl (command-line utility for Linux).
    It's 54 MB. A very good summary of the Flat Earth position; I had to have it.

    Nice try, but it's the exact same camera in both shots, with both being shot from the same angle.  So, fail.

    You've already been thoroughly brainwashed and refused to look at the issue objectively, and your answers are becoming more and more pathetic with each post.  You're clinging in desperation, with white knuckles, to your brainwashing.
