The world is full of people who believe Earth is flat and, among the supporters of this idea, there are celebrities as well. One of them is the rapper B.o.B, who has even started a quest to find the edge of the world. Therefore, he decided to start a crowdfunding campaign to help him build a satellite, and launch his own space exploration experiments.
B.o.B wants to show everyone Earth is flat
Even if science successfully proved the shape of our planet is a sphere, plenty of people entertain the idea that this is a conspiracy, so they claim Earth is flat. Rapper B.o.B wants to prove the entire world wrong, and has just started a mission to find the Earth’s curve. However, he cannot do this on his own, so he asked for help.
Such a complex exploration mission requires a huge amount of money, so B.o.B launched a GoFundMe campaign, where he hopes to raise enough funds to sponsor several space missions. With the funds, he wants to build several satellites, use drones, weather balloons and, by all means, spot the edge of the world.
The rapper won’t let go of his beliefs
The first monetary goal of his campaign was $200,000. However, he reconsidered the sum, as he thought this wouldn’t be enough for all experiments he wanted to undertake. Therefore, the new goal is $1 million. So far, he managed to raise $3,026, with the first $1,000 given by himself. Most of those who donated did so because they found the cause ridiculous. However, there were also some people who actually believe Earth is flat.
B.o.B revealed his support for flat-Earthers a year ago and, since then, many people made fun of him and his beliefs everywhere on social media. Even the popular astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson tried to explain him why he was wrong, but the rapper won’t let go of his convictions.
even ten thousand years of deception always ends with an awakening.
