Flat Earthers generally contend that the planet is a flat disc hanging in space. The “Nothin’ on You” rapper, B.o.B, first expressed his support of the ‘flat Earth’ theory on Twitter in 2016, drawing the support of many – and the ire of others in the likes of Neil DeGrasse Tyson.
For many flat earthers, the linchpin argument is the human eye’s inability to see “the curve” of the planet. The new crowdfunding campaign is currently trending on host site, GoFundMe, with a fundraising goal of $1M. The effort has been named “ShowBobbyTheCurve” and hopes to investigate the curvature of the planet’s surface with satellites.
