It is unclear whether rapper B.o.B. actually believes the earth is flat or if he’s just on a marketing kick, but the famous rapper who has taken to calling himself “Flat earth Bob” has started a GoFundMe campaign, asking for donations so that he can buy satellites to prove humans have been tricked into believing they live on a sphere.
The headline of the GoFundMe page features a description of B.o.B.’s goal, in which he writes: “I’d like to send one, if not multiple satellites, as far into space, or as far into orbit as I can to find the curve … I’m looking for the curve.”
While Einstein’s general relativity theory seemed to have taken the question of the earth’s curve to the bank almost a century ago, “Flat Earth Bob” remains unconvinced. Flat-earthers believe this so-called curve would be far more visible to the naked eye if it existed. They also ask, ‘Why is the horizon a straight line?’
B.o.B./Flat Earth Bob needs evidence on his side, which, hopefully, the satellites will provide. He was recently eviscerated by physicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson on Twitter for his suspicions. He doesn’t exactly have and intelligence trust backing him up either, as top fellow flat-earthers include celebrities Tila Tequila and Sherri Smith.

While a preponderance of evidence suggests the earth is indeed round, the efforts of people like B.o.B. reinforce mankind’s admirable search for ever higher standards of proof.
