How would be living on a flat EARTH?
Long long ago our ancestors used to believe that the Earth is flat and there's no end to it. But, then they discovered that the Earth is round. It was the Greeks who first discovered it. And after coming to this modern age we know the actual shape of the Earth. We know that earth is round but, the Earth is approximately spherical, but there is a slight flattening towards the poles. It looks like an oblate spheroid: flattened like an orange. The question may have appeared in your mind that who was it exactly that discovered Earth is round and when was it. Well, I have something for you from a website named StarChild.
Who figured out the Earth is round?
But, while we are living in this modern age, humans have put their footsteps on the surface of the moon, we are also preparing to go and live on another planet (Mars), we have hundreds or maybe thousands of satellites always watching over the Earth and all that scientific proofs that Earth is round. There are still some people who believe that Earth is a flat surface. I believe everyone has their own reason to believe something and I respect it. But, isn't it obvious that how the earth is? They have their own logic about it and we have our own. And in this post, I'll discuss it. That how our life would be if we were living on a flat Earth? Good or Weird?
I was also interested in this topic and I was searching on the internet about it and then I found this amazing website named LIVESCIENCCE. And they presented some pretty good points about it. I'm adding them below directly from the website.
1. Say goodbye to gravity (at least as we know it)
2. It would certainly clear the atmosphere
3. Cloudy with a chance of sideways rain
4. We would all get lost
5. Some journeys would take forever
6. No more auroras and we'd all be roasted
7. We'd all have to share the same night sky
8. Hurricanes would be a thing of the past
I've only used the titles/main topics here from the website. But, some of them may be still not clear to you and for that, you can visit the website from where I myself learned about the facts. This website also provides a lot of other scientifical information and they can be a help to you.
I'll meet you again in a new post with something more interesting and informative.
