Flat Earth balloon experiment

Darrell Foss  COQUILLE, OR

I am a Flat Earth researcher. And I want to prove to everyone that the Earth is flat. I will be doing several high altitude balloon launches at different times of day to get definite proof. At the salt flats. One proof will be that I hypothesize we would be able to see the sun when the sun is supposed to be 180 on the other side of the "Globe". Another proof would be to launch the balloon 2 hours before noon to show how close the sun really is because it should almost be at 90 degrees.  I have found some very excellent equipment I would like to send up such as a high-definition camera attached to a gimbal to cancel the rocking that causes lens distortion. I will also be putting a Raspberry pi computer with a sensor array to give us telemetry data and a GPS tracking device to find the unit. The sensor array is the Raspberry pi Sense hat.  NASA claims to have 2 of them on the ISS. I have had some comments here saying that I'm using GPS to find the unit after it descends proves the earth is a globe. GPS uses ground-based technology, the signal fails at a certain altitude.

Thank you all for your help. I am still working on the project. I have moved and had hard times. But I am going to do the launch. Thanks again. I will keep you all updated.

@Ric Clements
I will be doing 3 launches 1 at 10 am to see what the sky looks like at noon. We can see how far away the sun is. Another launch at night to see if we can see the sun at night when the sun is supposed to be 180 degrees on the other side of the "globe". And another launch not sure when, but I have an extra balloon. The launch will be near the Bonneville salt flats.

@Amanda Vollmer you obviously don't know my methodology or you wouldn't be saying that. You're just trying to stop an experiment.

You trolls knocking flat earth are soooooo weak... you cant do anything for yourselves you gotta talk about what this one guy did this one time and oh yeah you guys that think everyone else is dumb as you and cant tell the difference between cgi and and a photo look again....if you cant tell that doesn't mean we lack anything it means you're just a well hearded sheep.... The ground we walk on is so flat its ridiculous.... If you study this topic like some of these troll ass comments say you do than youd know how flat it is by now..... If you're trolling of flat earth videos and don't believe it you're a troll....simple..... People don't just care this much about indoctrinating with a comment..... If you've done any research at all then you know it is flat and no eclipses do not prove anything... Look up diamagnetism.... look up sonoluminesense ... The stars have never moved in the history of time all constellations are right where theve been the whole time... Polaris is right there its all right there.... Sailors have had the same stars to travel across the pizza planet ever since we got tired of swimming.... And cave men we were not.... But cave men we might become if we keep going to public schools.... Funny part is all the Leaders of the world all know what I just said all believe it, they don't even believe the shit they tell you.....but you do......with the internet and all these answers at a fingers touch and you still don't know..... The Matrix is beautiful isn't it.....

Question: why are you relying on GPS data, which only works if the earth is a globe? Also, if this experiment shows a globe earth, will you accept this and reject your flat earth hypothesis? If you answer yes to the latter, I will contribute $25 to this campaign.

I never read any article mentioning Eratosthenes being a freemason, and whether he was or wasn't doesn't matter, his calculations were accurate to a degree of 2%, which is both astounding and repeatedly demonstrable if you deny the calculations, what are the ones you've found to bolster your claims?

Actually, it's because people in the group thought that Antarctica is controlled by the government and anyone approaching it would be shot. I explained that that is simply a ridiculous notion and posted links to multiple scenic cruises and flyovers people can take. Then I was told it's impossible to cross it and I posted information to someone who not only crossed it but documented extensively. I wasn't trolling at all. Apparently any comments that don't fall in line with your narrative is enough to get me banned.

the fact eclipses are always round was the earliest evidence the moon and earth are round... but go ahead, waste your cash, ancient observation and modern science, trigonometry, as well as video and photographic evidence MUST be wrong as part of a cover up for the real thing

Make sure that you go higher than the typical ~33 km. I am doing the same experiment, but to prove the Earth is a globe. For this, we have designed a solid rocket booster to take us an additional 8-10km higher as soon as our balloon pops. Our balloon is designed to go 38km alone. Last flight, it actually went 39,8km, so we will be capturing video and images from about 48-50km in the end.

I would be happy to have a frank discussion. But the last time I tried that in your echo chamber group you booted ne from the group and blocked me. If you have the conviction of your beliefs you should be more than willing to put them up to scrutiny.

Where and when will you be launching? Legit question. You mention salt flats but not which salt flats. And the date/dates you'll be launching as well please.

The Lunar eclipse is not caused by the Earths shadow. A horizontal lunar eclipse is impossible on a globe, but they happen. How do you explain that? If you dont understand what that is, its when the sun and moon are both in the sky but the moon is still eclipsed. Technically there should be an eclipse every full moon.

Bro a GPS only works if the Earth is a globe yet you are using that to control your "experiment?" Should prolly just use the money to invest in a high school science class. Or like 4th grade science class even.

I feel it's important to keep in mind this recent physics and information about how we affect outcomes of our reality based on belief systems. Your experiment is not proving anything, just gathering more evidence. http://www.anu.edu.au/news/all-news/experiment-confirms-quantum-theory-weirdness https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_RwcGzGurc&feature=youtu.be&t=1h23m7s

You can then keep doing the same from increased distances to show that there's no curvature.

While you're there you should do some ground-based tests as well. Like have a camera 6 inches off the ground (Make sure to include the ruler), and a flashlight a mile away on the ground to prove that you can see it.
