Today I want to check if the flat earth model I have till now presented is ok. Especially in the case of a solar eclipse.
The model to keep in mind is that of a flat earth pond on which you should visualize the trajectory of the sun. This is a cone having the following geometrical data:
|Radius of the orbit
|Height of the orbit
Hello, guys! As you remember, we started just reasoning about parallax and magical squares. Our goal was to define the trajectory of the sun, the moon, and the planets. We were also curious about their relative distances and their orbit radiuses. Read more
Few figures in the history of technology are more controversial than Wernher von Braun, the card-carrying Nazi scientist who built, by the exploitation of thousands of slave laborers from concentration camps, the world’s first ballistic missile. Working for NASA he became a leader in the American space program, building the rocket that carried Apollo 11 up to the moon. Read more
There are still great truths to say, if we had both the courage to state them and the good disposition to accept them. Freeman Dyson
Mainstream science today is not headed the same direction of the flat earth. You could suppose a sort of secret conjuration took form in the course of the years, contrived with the aim to cover the evidence. Probably just a handful of influential men, endowed with certain personal charisma, were sufficient to build a framework that can no more be put under discussion. Scientific freedom remains an illusion. Scientists have to stay inside the limits of the established rules and only the braves are daring to challenge that implicit command.
We could say that the annual parallax of a star is the angle defined by the sun, the star and the Earth. (considering the star perpendicular to the line that unites the Sun and the Earth).
