Flat Earth Theory: Elon Musk has his say
There Earth is a globe. There are photos, there are videos. American, Russian, Chinese, Italian, etc. astronauts saw it with their own eyes. Yet there are people, scattered around the web, who question all this evidence, claiming it is nothing more than false theories disclosed by governments. Which has led some people to believe that the Earth may even be flat.
Now: that’s what they say and what they believe. It is very difficult to distinguish an Internet troll from a true “conspiratorial” – let us pass the term fantasy – or from a poor skeptic at the mercy of confusion.
The point is that this new wave of flat earth conspirators – which had died out in the past – has brought out a number of characters that some find even ridiculous. A few days ago we were talking about the man who wants to launch himself by means of a homemade rocket, produced by himself, to prove that the planet is actually flat. He raised the funds to make this happen. And, with a satellite, the famous Flat Earth Society – which was restored in 2004 – intends to “oppose dogmatic theoretical hypotheses”.
In this context, Elon Musk, promoter of the new aerospace era, creator of giant batteries, elevated tunnels, car manufacturer, decided to have his say via Twitter: “Why is there no Flat Mars Society?” He wrote.
Why is there no Flat Mars Society !?

It was a rhetorical question, we suppose. But today the Society of the Flat Earth ruled:
“Hi, Elon. Thanks for the question. Unlike Earth, Mars has been observed to be round. We hope you have a great day! ”.
That said, it is pointed out that society believes that Mars is a spherical planet (we assume that anyone observing it with a telescope from home). But does this mean that the Earth is the only flat planet in the Universe known?
