Buzz Aldrin, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Scott Kelly and Terry Virts are trolling singer B.o.B. on twitter
Singer B.o.B has started a GoFundMe to prove that Earth is actually flat. The US rapper is crowd-funding the launch of satellites to see if he can get some evidence to the contrary. His intention is to discover if Earth is a disc or anything else, but not spherical.
“I’m starting this GoFundMe because I would like to send one, if not multiple satellites, as far into space as I can, or into orbit as I can, to find the curve. I’m looking for the curve,” he added.

Bobby Ray Simmons, Jr.(on his real name) received quick answers from personalities which support the opposite. First one was Neil deGrasse Tyson, making refference of artist’s photo from above:
@bobatl Earth's curve indeed blocks 150 (not 170) ft of Manhattan. But most buildings in midtown are waaay taller than that.

The astronaut Scott Kelly responded ironically:

And others did it also:

I did too. It's called an orbit: the curved path of a celestial object around a star, planet, or moon. https://t.co/h8GQJadfxD

After all, the rapper replied in his way:
All he needs is a small investment of $200,000 dollars and a launch approval to see his dream come true. Too bad he earned just ~$300 by now…
Despite of photos, news and studies from space, flat earth society has over 100,000 followers on Twitter and Facebook and it’s still growing.
