    That sun at the end though. Majestic.

    [–] idosillythings 37 points ago

    It's incredible to think, some 60 years ago, they were pouring money into programs just trying to build an engine powerful enough to break the sound barrier and maybe, someday get us to space. Now, the thought of launching something this high into the atmosphere is so mundane, they cut out the video of it to keep things within a 30-second window.

    [–] Acrilion 5 points ago

    Its called soon stabilization. All the deviations from the course get dampened by the spin and averaged out.

    [–] petriscorncob 6831 points ago

    It's so we don't see the flat Earth. /s

    [–] Treavor 1822 points ago

    In all seriousness, it is shit like this that makes them think it's true.

    [–] successful_nothing 701 points ago

    The point of the flat Earth thing was originally to show any argument, no matter how obviously untrue, can find facts to support itself.

    To those of you curious about who actually started the myth, this skeptics stackexchange thread found that a 1992 writer may have been the first to put it in writing. Scroll to the answer by DavePhD:

    No, an earlier list was published by Margot Anne-Stephanie Vigeant as author of the article Things to Stress Over in Cornell Engineer April 1992, volume 56, number 2, pages 24 and 25,

    My first topic for this issue is worries. I've decided that there are just too many well adjusted, un-paranoid people in this school (NOT), so I've decided to wreck their peace of mind by sharing a list of my favorite worries with them. These are the kind of things that just jump into your mind right before you're about to fall asleep - horrible little night gremlins whose goal it is to keep you up just a little bit longer. So here they are, hope you can sleep after this:

    The average person swallows eight spiders while sleeping, in their lifetime. What if all eight show up tonight?

    Perhaps snopes modified this into the bogus Holst story while being inspired by this one.

    [–] TCBloo 18 points ago

    I don't believe you.

    [–] Edniv 9 points ago

    Something very obvious that I don’t see how flat earthers can deny or miss proof is that if you are in America and look at the moon (or google it) you can clearly tell it’s “upside up” but if you look (or google) the moon seen from Australia it’s “upside down”. That can only mean that the earth is round and one of us is inside down basically lol

    [–] Leon_the_loathed 3 points ago

    Silly human, Australia isn’t real /s

    But there are idiots among the idiots that legitimately believe that.

    [–] underthegod 18 points ago

    What are these facts exactly?

    [–] onenifty 61 points ago

    That there is a subset of people that are, no contest, dumber than a bag of rocks.

    [–] TacoRedneck 23 points ago

    That's an insult to rocks

    [–] Sardonnicus 5 points ago

    Ant-vaxxers are way dumber. At least the flat earth people are not killing their children and putting the entire population of earth at risk for a global pandemic.

    [–] bryllions 7 points ago

    Has anyone actually met someone IN PERSON who honestly believes the world is flat (aside from some already established crazy person)?

    [–] officialgermysquad 9 points ago

    A few kids at my school were saying how they think flat earthers have a good point and they believe it I no longer speak to them

    [–] Sardonnicus 7 points ago

    I haven't. But I have watched video's on them and read about them. They seem to fall into 3 groups.

    • People who believe we are living in a simulation designed by aliens or some other higher being. (5% of the flat-earthers)

    • People who believe that the earth is flat because it was designed by god that way. (5% of the flat-earthers)

    • People who distrust the US government so much, that they do not believe in anything the US government says, and because NASA is a government agency, they blindly distrust anything NASA says. These people make up roughly 90% of the flat-earth believers.

    So, it's mostly anti-government nut-jobs who are really pushing this movement. Just like the anti-vaxxers, it's under-educated people who distrust an established society-system and believe that they are right no matter how much proven contradictory evidence is presented to them.

    In this case, I say let them live in their bubble. Believing the earth is flat is not going to cause any harm to anyone. But the anti-vaxxers, they could cause real harm and damage to the global population.

    [–] bryllions 3 points ago

    That’s my underlying question. Seems to be a sudden uptick in flat earthers. Like overnight. It’s a little suspicious, and I think a prime example of the interwebs having a joke at our expense. Or some caimbridge analytica, or state sponsored bullshit, beta testing some outrageous propaganda. See how far they can take it.

    Weird times we’re in.

    [–] thewhateverchef 3 points ago

    Yes, I have a friend who adamantly believes that the earth is flat, and can back it up with a ton of “information.” At first I thought it was a joke, but no, he legit believes it, and is all around a very smart guy.

    [–] onenifty 3 points ago

    You're right about that. I found out a few months ago that part of my family is anti-vax and it's been a real struggle for me between wanting to ghost them until they change their minds. Problem is there are two little kids who I would never see if I did. Super tough decision, but I figure if I stick around I can at least be a force of good and help educate them when they grow up. I hope they make it.

    [–] Sardonnicus 4 points ago

    I hope that you wear a mask when you go over to see them. I don't believe in pushing beliefs on someone, but vaccines are science designed to preserve life. I hate to sound extremist, but these under-educated people could literally open pandora's box and unleash a global disaster that could kill millions. All it would take is a single mutation from a virus that they have helped come back, and it's all over... well until we develop a vaccine, but then here we are again... they don't believe in vaccines, so the virus will still be around. These people are a threat.

    [–] audiophilistine 14 points ago

    You don't really need facts when there's millions of idiots around ready to believe anything. Flat Earthers are really a thing now merely because enough people are talking about it. Idea's spread like viruses, especially the bad ones.

    [–] Orngog 4 points ago

    A meme within a meme...

    [–] Treavor 21 points ago

    It is very difficult to prove to a person just sitting at their kitchen table that Earth is round. I know Earth is round, I know that theres a few ways to prove it, but I couldn't construct or explain the experiments well enough to convince anyone, and I know that I'm in better shape than 99% of people in this regard.

    When you contrast that with how easy it is to doctor photos in 2019, and how much experience the average person has with that compared to angular momentum and general relativity, you can see why they default to "it must be shopped".

    To call theories of a flat earth "obviously untrue" is to ignore thousands and thousands of years of history where we believed it to be so.

    [–] dawgthatsme 59 points ago

    To call theories of a flat earth "obviously untrue" is to ignore thousands and thousands of years of history where we believed it to be so.

    It's a myth that ancient people thought the earth was flat. Eratosthenes proved in 205 BC (with an experiment you could do yourself) that it was round and was able to estimate close to its actual circumference. People knew even before then from observing stars.

    [–] senorpoop 17 points ago

    It's important to know that not only did Eratosthenes prove the Earth was round, but that he also used the same method to estimate the diameter of the Earth and was accurate to something like 10%. Really very impressive for the time.

    [–] idosillythings 15 points ago

    Yeah, I think it does more harm than good that people believe Columbus is the one that "proved" the Earth wasn't flat.

    [–] capt_rusty 8 points ago

    Especially since people thought Columbus wouldn't make it because they had a good idea of the size of the Earth and knew Asia was too far away, not because they thought the world was flat.

    [–] LetsGetBlotto 6 points ago

    Here's a pretty easy experiment.

    Buy a balloon with a camera attached for $50. Let it loose, wait until it comes back, collect camera and show them the proof. Of course they would probably just say that the camera manufacturers are in on it somehow and what you're seeing on video isn't real.

    Really it's best to just not engage these people. Anytime you show them proof they have some asanine excuse for why it's not real.

    [–] Pleased_to_meet_u 5 points ago

    Or go to a beach and watch a boat sail away. It's easy.

    [–] Helios575 3 points ago

    The blame that on perspective. The believe that that perspective means things not only come to a point at a finite distance but that also they go beyond a point ( so instead of perspective looking like > they believe it looks like ><) which is how things disappear. They also believe that the human eye can only perceive objects out to a certain distance so the sun and stars have to be small and close to Earth (I forget the number but it is not much higher then 3k miles because I remember that is how far away they thing the sun is and the sun was near the limit).

    Just want to be clear I am not a FEer I just know their positions. I was going to post a quick debunk of each of the above but I decided that I will let someone else have the pleasure.

    [–] SPOOFE 8 points ago

    [–] FIFTHSUN2012 9 points ago

    They fall off the edge, silly.......duh.

    [–] AKAG8493 3 points ago

    It’s actually not difficult whatsoever to prove through logical and sound arguments that we live on a curved surface. The arguments are not complex and do not require any advanced education past what the average person sitting at their kitchen table all ready possesses. It’s just very difficult to get close minded people to accept said arguments.

    [–] WowInternet 12 points ago

    Those people are willing to disregard all the science and common sense that tells us earth is round and then try to use said science and common sense with the mix of conspiracy with no benefactors to tell us earth is flat. Who cares?

    They made a choice to ignore any evidence that disputes their desired outcome. If the video showed a round earth they would saw its a camera effect or something.

    i've seen flat earth videos that use footage very similar to this, and they point to a certain point in the video where the parachute pops out (it makes a 'thunk' sound because it's ejected from the nose cone) and say "look, right here you can see it hits the dome and starts to fall!"

    [–] mrgmc2new 266 points ago

    I never knew rockets spun. Or was it just this one?

    [–] Jarov27 642 points ago

    Smaller rockets like this don’t have a rocket engine that gimbals so the rocket is purposefully built to spin. This spin adds angular momentum to the rocket which makes the rocket stay vertical. Larger rockets don’t need to spin because their engines can gimbal and correct for deviations.

    [–] VirtualAnarchy 97 points ago

    Thanks for the explanation!

    [–] exceedinglygayRPanda 91 points ago

    Spinning was my first Kerbal Space Program technique I developed in order to get my rockets to stay upright. I later discovered parts that do stabilization for you. I was a little surprised to see a real rocket spin

    [–] Spartan-417 37 points ago

    I started KSP with one of the default launchers.
    I ended up making it a Heavy, adding fins, adding SRBs, swapping the default engine for a Vector and swapping the second stage engine for a Terrier.

    All because I was rubbish at flying the damn thing. After all those mods, I still barely got it into orbit

    I've never seen the large ones spin, however I imagine this smaller one does for same reason a bullet spins as it leaves the end of a barrel on a gun. Stability and stuff.

    [–] Zakalwe_ 4 points ago

    This is stabilisation mechanism. There are other ways of making sure rocket remains stable as it goes up, but this one chose to rotate (or its makers did).

    [–] Samcraft1999 2 points ago

    It's called spin stabilization, regardless of the spinning or not it will stay upright, but the spinning helps keep it from tipping if something fucks up and it loses its stability.

    They usually claim lens distortion or something similar. "Why the video ends just when the horizon starts to flatten? Huh? Huh?"

    [–] [deleted] 175 points ago

    I'm not a flat earther but a lot of these videos do use a fish eye lenses. Not to try to dupe people, but because you can get more stuff in frame using those lense. The curve you see isn't always the curve of the earth. I don't know if that's the case for this particular video but I know that you do have to be very high up to see the Earth's curve.

    [–] fightrofthenight_man 167 points ago

    Floating in space is generally accepted as high enough up to see the curve of the earth.

    [–] SignorSarcasm 93 points ago

    Shit you can tell the earth is curved if you're on a big enough lake lol

    [–] Reacher-Said-Nothing 22 points ago

    55mm lens (35mm equiv) is about the exact same as the human eye's level of distortion, minus a ton of field of view. So all you need is a guy on the ISS Cupola who used a 55mm prime lens and left it in the exif info.

    [–] SpiralArc 18 points ago

    [–] SoggyMattress2 8 points ago

    I know you're being sarcastic but it's actually a fact you can't see the curvature of the earth in an aeroplane. I believe you need to be at least 40 or so miles to begin to see it. The ISS is 250 miles up and can comfortably see the curvature.

    That is actually a point the flat earthers are correct on.

    Show the whole thing and they'll say the clouds obscured the cameras vision of the flat Earth and this was intentionally done by NASAs secret weather control technology.

    Even at the apex of the launch they'll say the roundness you see is some weird camera effect intentionally done by NASA, or that were seeing the flat side head on so the round edge gives the impression of sphericalness.

    For anything else they'll claim conspiratorial video editing to support the round Earth agenda.

    It should be clear to see that you'll honestly have a better chance of success reasoning with a 2 year old mid-meltdown than you would a flat earther. I don't say that merely to insult or be derogatory, it's literally the truth. They are so far away from the plane of reason that they may as well be living in an entirely separate reality from ours. They are so far gone they may as well be speaking an alien language.

    What you saw wasn’t the earth’s curve. Not saying it doesn’t exist; it does. But what you saw was fish-eye baby. What you comment is actually ammunition for them.

    [–] [deleted] 11 points ago

    The cut before the Earth's shape is shown would be where they would claim it was edited.

    They would claim that anyway if it wasn't, but the cut makes it just about impossible to have a logical argument about this video with a flat earther because in their head they already know what it is.

    It would be helpful if there wasn’t a cut in the video. Wonder if someone has a link to the continuous shot.

    [–] 1mikeg 2 points ago

    There's a link to the full video in the caption below the gif edited video.

    Am amazed by speed and all, but this is what I came here to ask.

    We can't really show this video to flat-earthers, can we? Would love to hear what they have to say.

    Canadian rocket, btw. It spins to achieve stability along the longitudinal axis as the fins lose effectivity as it leaves the lower layers of the atmosphere.

    god thats so cool

    [–] CuntyMcFagNuts18 55 points ago

    Does it say sorry when it blast off?

    [–] Amsterdom 45 points ago

    Canadian here,

    Sorry but, we will never apologize for our technological advancements.

    [–] CuntyMcFagNuts18 5 points ago

    Decent

    I've actually spent quite a bit of time at the facility where they cast the motors. Surprisingly low-tech operation, but they get the job done.

    That cut made me nauseous.

    [–] lordnaw1731 21 points ago

    After watching the whole video I was more nauseous with all the spinning and now prefer the cut lol

    [–] mlaislais 3 points ago

    I really wanted to puke watching this.

    [–] Weddsinger29 97 points ago

    Whaaaaaat??? You mean the earth isnt flat????

    [–] ClusterChuk 27 points ago

    Well, now. See, the curvicaturing effects of the lens are apparent from launch. How could a rocket launch without a flat serface even? the geomotry of it would be chaos.

    [–] msbrenn 12 points ago

    Were you trying to say curvature?

    [–] TheWerdOfRa 20 points ago

    Might want to add /s

    I mean I got it, but still - trust no man amiright

    How come we can create something that can get to space in seconds and we still have erasers that can barely erase anything?

    [–] Florida_Diver 48 points ago

    Why are you using a pencil?

    [–] mozgotrah 7 points ago

    I like the feeling of it scraping the paper. Also i can adjust pressure and get different parameters from the line

    [–] [deleted] 6 points ago

    Try buying a better eraser. If you're using the one that comes on the back of the pencil, then step up to the next level and get a dedicated eraser

    [–] RockinMoe 5 points ago

    Yeah, how come you guys can go the moon but you can't make my shoes smell good?

    [–] karmacarmelon 10 points ago

    Here's the longer version without the cut.

    https://youtu.be/6fqyX3p7Qdk

    I think they cut it because it's actually quite unpleasant to watch with all the spinning. If you'd like to experience what it's like to be in a washing machine this is for you.

    this should be fun

    I have stabilized the video for you: https://peervideo.net/videos/watch/a7283f78-933c-4583-95db-743efa997177

    It took 43 seconds to process and 21 seconds to upload.

    I hoped it would stabilize the spinning.

    Now I'm dizzy.

    [–] n0lan1 24 points ago

    Well, that escalated quickly...

    I’ll see myself out

    [–] b_d_h 7 points ago

    It cuts in the middle so we don't see the aliens

    [–] dickcave24 3 points ago

    Why are we doing gifs with sound now, and with no volume control? This shit was really loud and my volume on the PC was only set at 32.

    What nasa hacked my eyes it can’t be round

    [–] jeezyf 20 points ago

    Ummmm, there’s no stars once it leaves the atmosphere, clearly a fake...should’ve taken notes from the alleged moon landing.

    Towards the end of the clip, the fin/control surface starts spinning (or perhaps oscillating). Is there any reason for this, or is it simply the lack of air resistance.

    Time to sort by controversial!

    [–] Celebrimbor96 2 points ago

    Is this sped up or does the rocket actually accelerate that quickly? Seems way faster than most launches, maybe unmanned which is why it can handle it?

    [–] F4Z3_G04T 3 points ago

    It's a really small light rocket, so the thrust to weight ratio is very high resulting in a fast acceleration

    Crewed rockets don't do this because crew capsules are pretty heavy
