Brian Cox just shut down a Flat Earther live on radio

Brian Cox et al. posing for the camera

Flat Earthers aye? We just can't help but admire their blind commitment to something which is blatantly not true.
On multiple occasions, the conspiracy theory has been to be a complete fallacy, but they will keep on fighting to prove the planet is flat until the bitter end.
One person who has attempted to disprove the flat Earth theory on more than one occasion is everyone's favourite northern professor of particle physics Brian Cox.
His latest crusade against the flat Earthers comes courtesy of an interview with BBC Radio One presenter Greg James.
While taking part in a segment called 'Shouldn't Be News', Cox was asked about his opinions on the rapper B.o.B, who is an outspoken supporter of the flat Earth belief.
Last year, the rapper declared his intentions to raise money for the construction of a rocket that he would send into the atmosphere to take photos of the flat earth. 

When Cox was asked about B.o.B's ambitious experiment he rather bluntly replied:

A ‘flat-Earther’ is a person who thinks the Earth is flat, and that is not right.
It's a sphere.

However, he did have some admiration for B.o.B as at least he was trying to prove his theory right and not just watching videos on YouTube or reading Reddit threads.
Cox added:

To his credit – again, I’m not going to defend what he thinks. It's totally wrong – that’s the heart of science.
If you want to prove something to yourself and you should do, that’s a good instinct, then that’s what you do.
You get your money, build a rocket, go off into space and then you will find it’s spherical.
He has wasted all his money but he will have learnt something.

At the time of writing, B.o.B's GoFundMe campaign for his rocket experiment has raised just $6,893 in seven months.

  • A meteorite that fell to Earth in October 2008 contained scores of small diamonds.
  • The diamonds and impurities found inside them suggest the rock came from inside a planet.
  • Scientists think the planet was destroyed 4.5 billion years ago and was the size of Mercury or even Mars.
  • Asteroid TC 3, as it's called, may be the first pristine chunk of a "lost" planet ever recovered on Earth.


After a 4.5-billion-year journey through space, a car-size rock fell to Earth on October 7, 2008. The stony meteorite, called asteroid 2008 TC 3, plunged through the atmosphere, exploded, and rained its pieces over the Nubian Desert in Africa.

Meteorite hunters recovered about 50 fragments, which researchers later named the "Almahata Sitta" collection after a nearby train station in Sudan.

But while many stony meteorites hail from Mars, these were peculiar: They contained a bunch of tiny diamonds.

Scientists now think those gems and the impurities found inside them could only come from the heart of a Mercury-to-Mars-size planet. This means the rock that fell to Earth nearly a decade ago was part of a "lost" planet formed — and completely destroyed— at the dawn of the solar system.

Good stuff.

Brilliant images Doone. I often wonder why the planets form a disk around a star and not a ball

Wonderful collection of images of young solar systems

Yes, it was all over the news, & a baby explosion 9 months later.

Comment by Stephen on April 13, 2018 at 8:40pm

Do you remember it?

Comment by Mrs.B on April 13, 2018 at 7:10pm

That was just after we moved here.

The Day The Sun Brought Darkness

About 30 years ago, on March 13, 1989, the whole province of Quebec, Canada, suffered a blackout that by now has reached legendary proportions among astronomers and electrical engineers. Still, what made it reach this status wasn’t its proportions, but the fact that it was caused by the sun, or a solar storm to be more exact.

Three days earlier, astronomers noticed a powerful explosion on the sun, and just a few minutes after that, the Sun’s magnetic forces had already released a cloud of gas worth more than a billion tons. The cloud headed straight for Earth’s direction and at about 1.000.000 miles/hour, it went straight for us. It even jammed some radio frequencies, which most of Europe thought was the work of Russians, but they soon found out the true cause.
