A man is on a special mission to prove the Flat-Earthers wrong by sending one into space.
- Marc Gauld, 37, is raising funds to send a Flat-Earther into space.
- The man’s goal is to raise £250,000 to give one member of the Flat Earth Society the chance to see with their own eyes that our planet is not flat.
- He has launched the campaign to prove the Flat-Earthers wrong and to “finally put this to rest”.
One day, Marc Gauld, 37, got so annoyed at his Flat-Earther friends that he decided to take things on another level. As per UNILAD, he launched a campaign to send a prominent Flat-Earther advocate into space to prove them all wrong about the shape of our planet.
According to Marc, who is also a keen sci-fi admirer, the claims that the Flat Earth Society makes are “totally disrespectful” to the scientific community. He shares that his plan was provoked by the “nonsense” his friends were trying to convince him of. In an interview with Daily Record, he explained:
“I have a couple of friends that are flat-earthers and it drives me crazy their total nonsense that they speak. They call astronauts actors who are paid to lie and that boils my blood because these are guys who barely hold down jobs and do nothing so to talk about astronauts like that I don’t know where they get off. I decided to give them the chance to put their money where their mouth is for once and the only way I could do it is by sending a high ranking flat-earther into space.”
The man is determined to raise £250,000($345,000) to get a flat-earther into space.
Marc apparently did his research right because this sum is the right amount he needs to send someone into space with Virgin Galactic. In the GoFundMe page he set up, the annoyed 37-year-old writes:
“This campaign is to prove to flat earthers once and for all that the earth is round! It currently takes £250000 to secure a seat on a Virgin Galactic flight to enter the earths orbit.”
The space enthusiast also states that if the Flat-Earthers are certain that the Earth is indeed flat, they should be the most supportive of his fundraiser. He adds:
“One lucky flat earther will be chosen for disappointing the rest of the flat earthers.
Please get onboard with this as it is in the name of science and it will finally disprove or prove the flat earth theory and we can finally put this to rest!”
