Can you prove that the Earth isn't a hollow sphere?

Mouthwash , your behavior is strange.  You make this thread under the pretext of seeing if the community can present a proof that the Earth is not hollow, or that we're inside of that hollow.  I interpret it as being posted as a fun intellectual exercise.  You also ask if the arguments given on som...

Can you prove that the Earth isn't a hollow sphere?

10491 Ah, he could easily be standing on the ground. The rig looks to be 50-100 feet high. It isn't. You can see in this picture that the height of the deck above the water is only 10-15 feet. The photographer is higher than this. And it does have a yellow barrier around it. "I edited my earli...

The railings are not opaque, so this makes no sense.

I edited my post to respond to your confusion regarding the lasers, fyi.

Then why can't you see onto the deck of the barge, which you would be able to if it were not rotated? Keep in mind, the rotation will be slight, not obvious, because Earth is huge.

I dunno. Because they have railings? Seems ambiguous.

Can you prove that the Earth isn't a hollow sphere?

10390 But what if it is hollow at the very end, or halfway? Maybe few thousand kilometers bellow the surface. Look at the image that Watsisname posted of the observed propagation of seismic waves through the Earth, as measured from a variety of different seismometers all over the world. You can obs...

Qr Bbpost Dude, the actual arguments are on the website itself! I'm just summarizing what they say. You have to look at the links.

Okay, I have question for you. Do you believe in hollow Earth?

No.

Can you prove that the Earth isn't a hollow sphere?

Can you prove that the Earth isn't a hollow sphere? Yes, easily, using data collected by our own forum members.  I'll use two examples. 1)   The p ropagation of seismic waves. On the old forum , midtskogen showed a recording of an earthquake which took place in New Zealand, from his station in Norw...

Can you prove that the Earth isn't a hollow sphere?

Exactly what you would expect if you lived on the outside of a sphere. If you lived on the inside, it would seem to curve upwards. What? Why would it? Besides all of this, if you observe ships moving away from you over the horizon, you notice that their highest parts disappear last, and that when t...

In fact, Eratosthenes already proved over 2200 years ago that the earth is a globe and that we live on the outer surface.

How does he do that? I'm no great shakes at physics, but it seems like he just proved that the Earth is round.

When you jump you are moving with the Earth, even as you go into the air. Thus it does not move. 

Yes... that is something I know quite well. Can you please make a better effort to read before responding?

Can you prove that the Earth isn't a hollow sphere?

I found this website today, run by an interesting fellow called 'Wild Heretic.' It seems really intricate and comprehensive, so I thought it would be interesting to post here. Wild Heretic believes that we live on the inside of a hollow sphere, lit by a half-light half-dark Sun at its center (he cla...

You're right. it should 164.5 years, not 18.5

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

You're wrong, moons of moons are not theoretically possible. Even for lightweight planet and very far moon, like our Earth's Moon, its satellite could exist just few years. I've seen moons nearly 7 AU away from their planets in SE... but they were admittedly pretty small (largest was 4% the mass of...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

1. On planet RS 0-9-88682392-286-2-2-37-44 4, it looks as though the aurora on the ice caps is below the ground. You can see it perfectly despite the intervening terrain, though. 2. Sun glitter still seems to appear even when the sun is blocked from view. Since the brightness of a star changes when ...

General questions about SpaceEngine

Are there any plans to improve known planets? The surfaces of mapped-out worlds like Titan and Earth are absolutely abysmal compared to the procedural terrain. I landed on the shores of Ligeia Mare and my first thought was that the terrain failed to mesh, but no, that is just how it is. Also, will t...
