The Earth is not flat. It is an oblate spheroid. A flat earth model is too full of flaws to be true.
Cartographers an represent the spherical Earth on flat paper by making a projection, which is like casting shadows from the spherical world onto a flat piece of paper.
They thought that the Earth was flat and not spherical.
Spherical but also flat on the top and bottom
It was not discovered, it was assumed until proved otherwise.
Cuz it's flat, dummy
The ancient Greeks knew (most likely discovered too) the earth was not flat contrary to the popular myth that Columbus thought he would fall of the Earth if he sailed to far West. _______________________ We have no way of knowing which ancient civilizations realized that the Earth was spherical, but it was likely the Phoenicians, those sea-faring traders who roamed the Mediterranean and on to England and the Norse lands.
the shape of the earth is not flat. it has a spherical shape. its slightly flattened at the poles to give a nearly spherical shape hence; the earth's shape is better described as a geoid which means the earth's shape
No some people back in the 1800s said that the earth was flat
Because people have seen it from space and anyway if the Earth was flat all the water would fall of the edge so then we would not survive
If the spherical Earth as we know it suddenly became flat, it would stop rotating, and the Sun and cosmic radiation would eventually destroy it.
because it is has the true spherical shape of the earth and map is a flat representation of the earth
WHAT demonstrates that the Earth is spherical?!
They actually didn't. Flat Earth is a myth. The spherical Earth has been a scientifically established fact since long before Ptolemy.
The Earth is geoid THE EARTH IS SPHERICAL
He discovered that the earth was round not flat.
simply by curving the surface of the map to adjust it to the bend of the earth
No change in day or night, or any change in seasons, these occur because of Earth spherical property
the fact that the time of sunrise and sunset varies from place to place on the earth proves that the earth is not a flat disc. if the earth were flat all the places on the earth would have sunrise and sunset at the same time.
Yes earth is a spherical (round), thousands of years ago people did not know that planet earth was round, they just thought it was flat so if they went to far they would fall of the edge! but nowadays because of spacetravel etc, we have seen planet earth and they have noticed it was a spherical planet. So yes it is.
3000 years ago someone discovered the earth was round and before that they thought it was flat.
