I know this sounds like babby's first science question or some flat earther shit, but I honestly want to know the answer to this since I noticed that every game that tries to do a curvature planet always ends up allowing the player to see said curvature from the ground surface. So...

Is the reason why we cannot see the Earth's curvature from ground level due to the immense size of the planet?

Is this why in games such as the Minecraft clone "Minetest" you could pretty much see such a curvature due to the world in the software being immensely small?

Have you ever been somewhere really flat, like the sea, and things eventually just disappear into the horizon? That's the curvature of the Earth. It's the same reason why you can see further by being higher; more of the Earth's curvature falls in your field of view.

I mean, how come you don't literally see the horizon curve? But I never been to some place really flat so I don't think I could say I witnessed that.

I would really like to make Minecraft look like Earth, but we don't see the world like this exactly so I am wondering if this is due to the size of the sphere and if I wanted to simulate Earth curvature if the sphere has to be larger.

Very interesting video.
You're right. We're not tall enough.
From the ISS though, at about 250 miles up, the curvature shows clearly. That's still not high enough to see more than a limited part of a hemisphere.

I checked that the image in a NASA photo and not CGI.

Yeah, a lot of games will give you a planet that's much smaller than a real planet would be, for gameplay reasons. Something like Planetary Annihilation has pretty small planets that you can easily see the curvature of, even from ground level.

Try Space Engine if you want some software that generates actual planet-sized planets, and then you can see the effect yourself. Pick one, fly toward it and descend to the surface, you will see how the horizon becomes flatter and flatter as you lose altitude. Eventually, the curvature is totally unnoticeable due to the size of the planet and your proximity to it.

If you want Minecraft to look like Earth it needs to be the size of Earth. That would require a radius of 6,371 kilometers, or 6,371,000 blocks.

Yes, a Minecraft world would need to be smaller to have the size of the Earth. With Earth-sized curvature, a flat sea that went to the horizon would require a draw distance of 294 chunks.

And even further up, it's very obvious. The altitude here is about 360km. The real ISS orbit floats around this altitude, which is why it's easy for them to see the curve of the Earth and record images/video of it. (In fact the Earth's curve would be even more noticeable at this altitude than this, because it's smaller than our virtual planet here)

Gravity varies as the inverse square of the distance to the center of the planet.
The Earth is about 4000 miles in radius.
An airliner at 30,000 feet is therefore about 6 miles further from the center.
(4000/4006)^ 2 = 0.997
You've lost 3/10ths of one percent of your weight. If you weigh 150 lbs, the loss is about 7 ounces.
Even at orbital heights, the loss is trivial. Astronauts are weightless because they AND their vehicle are falling together. Because of their horizontal speed, the Earth curves away just as fast as they descend. They never hit but fall permanently 'around' the Earth.

Get a hold of a globe. They're easy to come by. I have one that's .305m in diameter (about a foot).

The Earth is 12,756,000m in diameter. So my globe is scaled at about 1:41,822,951.

That means if I'm at the top of the 828 meter Burj Khalifa, that building would jut out of my globe .00002 m or 0.02 mm = a fiftieth of a millimeter, something like a flake of silt. The texture of the globe material would obstruct any view of curvature.

How about in an airplane at 12,000 m? I'd be .00029 m or .29 mm = one third of a millimeter above the globe - something like a grain of salt. *Maybe* I could see a bit of curve, but I doubt it.

The ISS orbits at about 395,000 m. That would put it about .00944 m or 9.44 mm above my globe, about the length of a coffee bean. Yes, you should be able to see curvature from there (protip - they do).

So that planets in the game are small, or the view is exaggerated. Remember: it's a game. They need to keep your interest, so interesting things need to happen quickly. That's all.

Or play Kerbal Space Program. That's relatively realistic.

Draw a circle or a curve on a piece of paper. Then look at the paper from edge on, even though you can see the entire circle, its appearance approaches a straight line the closer to edge on you get. But as you back away and get above the circle, the curvature becomes clearly defined. Because you are so close to the surface, and the horizon curves away from you equally, and incredibly gradually, in all directions, the curvature resembles a flat line. You have to get further away to see the Earth's curvature, or find a planet with tighter curvature.

On smaller bodies, local terrain will almost always obscure the curvature.

Can this be done on a globe (I mean a literal globe)?

I thank you for this information. My answer was addressed above since I really wanted to know why I could always see a curvature in video game worlds even if the planet is large (see: Universim) and then it hit me that the size of the planet is the most logical reason for why we on the surface of Earth cannot see the curvature whenever we walk down the sidewalk.

It was because video game planets are much more smaller than Earth.

So I had my question and suspicion confirmed regardless of how babbyish it was.

Would the units in Universim see their world flat though? I would assume so because they are so small while the camera always remains at a distance. Is this correct?

youtube.com/watch?v=R2sSyDBuV_k

I really want to play this game, but I am kind of a retard when it comes to constructing or engineering things like this in games.

Gigastrength
Gigastrength

The planet in that video still looks relatively small in comparison to the size of the units. They would probably see plenty of curvature.

It can't really be feasibly done on a literal globe. If your globe was 1 meter in diameter, then mount everest would be roughly .66mm in height. About 2/3 of a mm, on a globe larger than most I have ever seen. A person compared to your average globe would be absolutely tiny.

The only video game that managed to accurately capture the size of the Earth would be Space Engineers?

Do you have to know a lot about space vessels in order to start out or is this less overwhelming unlike Kerbal Space Program?

Fried_Sushi
Fried_Sushi

Space engineers has some pretty small planets too.. Large for the game for sure, but still small relative to Earth. The space travel in space engineers is far less realistic than kerbal space program, so you don't need to know a whole lot about actual physics to be able to move around in space engineers. You don't have to balance thrust, or worry about center of mass, etc.

Elite: Dangerous has some pretty large landable bodies.. It has actual sized planets, etc, but you can only bring your ship close to or land on the smaller ones.. These are still far bigger than I have seen in most other space games though. Once you get on a little rover driving at 10 m/s even the smallest landable moons seem astronomically huge. Elite: Dangerous also has some gas giants and stars that are true-to-life huge but you fly around so fast in your ship you can't really grasp how big they really are.

Boy_vs_Girl
Boy_vs_Girl

Space Engineers isn't in the slightest realistic. The game someone has been showing in here, Space Engine, is a different game.

Kerbal Space Program has a simple patched-conics model of orbital mechanics, smaller but denser worlds, and simple rocket engines that use magic fuel that doesn't evaporate. There are, however, mods for KSP that add n-body gravity, the actual solar system in full scale and realistic engines and fuels.

semi on-topic:
I've written a program to generate a spherical game world by subdividing an icosahedron
Each vertex contains a vector of data - let's just say it's 1-length and represents temperature
I want to do something like a convolution with this mesh - so if I set the "kernel" up to be the equivalent of a Gaussian blur, I could initially have one "hot" vertex & the rest "cold", then run it a bunch of times and watch the temperature even out over time
I'm too much of a brainlet to implement this though :( I can do a quick-and-dirty blur by looking at the neighbour vertices in the mesh but this is unsatisfactory - no guarantee that the edges are the same length
I feel like the "kernel" should be three dimensional with the dimensions representing rotations around three axes
Obviously it won't line up perfectly like an actual convolution on a matrix, so some interpolation will be required, but that's not too hard
Has anyone done this? Do I need to learn quaternions?

The accepted curve is 8(miles squared)
or
8in.(distance in miles^2)

Which means to take the square root of the distance traveled in miles and then multiply that figure by eight inches.

So for example, if you traveled one mile, the formula would look something like this;

8(1×1) = 8 Inches of total curvature

And for the first ten miles traveled of curvature in inches…

8(1×1) = 8 Inches of total curvature
8(2×2) = 32 Inches of total curvature
8(3×3) = 72 Inches of total curvature
8(4×4) = 128 Inches of total curvature
8(5×5) = 200 Inches of total curvature
8(6×6) = 288 Inches of total curvature
8(7×7) = 392 Inches of total curvature
8(8×8) = 512 Inches of total curvature
8(9×9) = 648 Inches of total curvature
8(10×10) = 800 Inches of total curvature

I wonder what you call a "real pic," given your ilk's propensity to label all imagery that goes against your trolling as fake. But I'll bite for now.

Satellites move very fast, are typically not very bright, and are very tiny. So you need a largish telescope to image the beasties, and you need orbital elements that can be programmed into your telescope's guidance system to track them for the duration of the exposure. That's pretty specialized and expensive equipment, given most amateur astronomer want to see stars, and professional want to get grants. Protip: grants are not awarded to people who take ground-based images of satellites to satisfy the obstinate cravings of lunatics.

Not to say it doesn't happen. There are two common instances: the inadvertent streak of an interloping satellite photobombing an otherwise wonderful astrophoto that took hours to set up, and the ISS, which is very bright indeed. So bright, it is easily visible to the naked eye from any brightly-lit city's downtown. Tracking is still needed, but it's a common target because the results are easier than with a much dimmer object.

Now, you *could* Google or DuckDuckGo or Yahoo search for such images, but I'm quite sure you have no interest in actually seeing 'real' images, you just want to get a (You). So here you go, and have a good wank at being acknowledged.

your absolute and monumental retardation is monolithic. it's a sheer fucking cliff with no footholds at all. not even the wisest man on the planet could deduce the manner in which you have come to your profoundly ignorant, misconceived ideas of things. you do not use any kind of reasoning that even vaguely resembles that of a normal person. such as with the whole satelite baloon thing from a while back. it seems first off that you were unable to grasp the concept of an orbit, which then led to you concluding that because the US government inflated a sphere in space, WHILE in orbit (and since by technicality it could be called a balloon) that therefore it must have been floating instead of orbiting, and thus all satellites are balloons. even in the face of direct examples that disprove the fundamental thesis of what you believe, you find some vague reason that they might "feel" wrong and thus proceed to convince yourself that the example is invalid. i actually feel extremely bad for you. it's like reasoning at all is nearly impossible for you. what's worse is that you will avoid having to confront your idiocy by calling me a shill, perhaps thinking to yourself "the fact that he's so dismissive and calling me an idiot means that i'm right!". no, you're just extremely stupid. What i'm about to say is not hyperbole: you are literally the stupidest person i have ever seen in my entire life, bar people so retarded that they cannot speak. the extent of your stupidity goes far beyond anything i have ever witnessed before, or will likely ever witness in the future. please just accept that you are hilariously wrong, as a person who cannot smell would just accept that he stinks.

Spacecraft generally spend days approaching and matching velocity with the ISS - the actual docking is done at fractions of a meter per second.

Sure kid. Where's the amateur footage of that fantasy taking place?

Too slow, and don't travel on fixed paths.

Weather balloons are what you'd call a geostationary satellite. However, things like GPS and satellite TV can be done via land based communication networks. You never see satellite dishes on houses pointed straight up do you?

Yes, it is due to the size of the planet. The curvature is there, but it is overwhelmed by the surface features. People don't think of just how big the earth is compared to how much of it they can see at any one time when on the surface. It is only through indirect observation that the Greeks figured out the earth was a huge sphere 2500 years ago, and not till high altitude air and space travel that we got high enough to actually override the surface irregularity and see it for real.

that is a fisheye brother, notice how even the rope is distorted? its always fisheye. correction software for these lenses shows flat always, there is no observable curvature. that is the caveat these days. every new "space" image is another attempt at indoctrination. even astronauts are passing the hot potato, no one wants to be the one to say it.

there is no photo of earth from space. composites are not photos.

25,000miles (circumference of earth)/360 = 69.4miles per arc degree.

tell me when you see this? vanishing point is what we perceive as the horizon but with telescopes and cameras like the P900, people have shown that we can see further than our perceived vanishing point (with the right atmospheric conditions). where there should be a curve obstructing your view.

Fisheye corrects at...
What makes you think that? You can't dismiss images as fisheye when the increase curvature and accept them when the reduce it. If you want to make claims about the effect of distortion you actually have to justify them.

The fact that people are KNOWINGLY using fisheye lens
There's nothing wrong with using fisheye lenses. They're a useful tool for taking very wide images, such as photographing the Earth from low altitudes.

If the earth has the correct curvature we're told, why give flat earthers any ammo by using a fisheye lens or cgi replica AT ALL??

Without knowing the field of view of the camera, there's no way to know how much curvature we should expect to see.

There's no way to use a wide-angle lens without creating some distortion. The distortion usually isn't an issue.

The globe matches the dimensions of Australia nearly perfectly. If I'm going to chart a flight around the world, it would be utterly insane of me to use your shitty flat earth map. A globe map is the only kind of map where you can get the accuracy required to chart a flight across the world.

Look at your shitty map again. In order to fly from cape south africa to sydney australia, you'd have to fly over FUCKING INDIA. In real life they don't fly anywhere close to India. They fly in a straight line over the ocean. If you're on that flight, you won't even see land for 3/4s of it.

Just out of curiosity, not the person arguing with you. What material would you use to tether a balloon that's high up enough to be supposedly a substitute for a satellite? What material is light enough to be lifted by a sheer difference in density like what lifts a balloon over that kind of distance, without even counting the equipment it's carrying with it, while still possessing enough tensile strength to not break supporting its own weight? I'm talking gps here, not terrestrial ground communication relays. Shit that works way away from civilization. Is there just secretly a network of relatively low altitude balloons that give the earth nearly total gps coverage, spread out every 50 miles or so and anchored to the ground? How is this more believable than an orbiting network of satellites that only need to be thrown up there once and then only need small speed corrections from there to account for what miniscule drag is up there since orbiting is basically falling in a circle? Are there balloons anchored above the oceans? Help me understand this shit.

It really isn't possible to argue successfully with a flat-Earther for three reasons:
1) They are not interested in the truth (virtually all are juvenile-level trolling, but some are delusional or choose to accept an oddly literal interpretation of some select Bible passages).
2) They make stuff up as they go along, keeping the stuff that sticks.
3) Most importantly, they don't offer any proof that requires a flat Earth paradigm to explain. There is literally no theory to argue.

The whole movement nefariously places the onus on you to prove the round Earth. Their singular tactic is to disavow any science or proofs put forward. If you use information that is readily available (and they could have looked up), you're called a 'shill' and your argument is dismissed without reason. Through proliferate offerings of demonstrably flawed posits, they "win" by eroding your patience. It is simply impossible to keep up with having to explain the fallacies in the barrage of assaults on even elementary principles of geometry, math, science, and logic. Trolls will respond with insults and offer no further explanations relevant to the argument, with the conventional goal of inciting responses and collecting "(You)s" while chuckling in self satisfaction from their solitary confines.

Arguing is akin to painting over mud - you just end up with a dirty brush.

I really don't get this "the earth look flat" thing.

I stand on just a hill, about 350 meters high, with unobstructed views overlooking the ocean, complete water from one edge of my vision to the other, and it looks obviously curved to me. Granted it is a very slight curve, but curved none the less.

I can get people might question my own visual judgement of the horison, but I live near a port. I can watch ships sail out and with a good pair of binoculars, see them slowly disappear over the horizon, still seeing their upper structures while their lower structures are clearly beneath the horizon. This could not happen if the Earth was flat. It would be impossible!

I bet you tried your cellphone and it didn't work because it uses A-GPS.
If you at least used an app that showed you the satellite positions your phone was receiving data from you would have seen you were picking up satellites but your phone just couldn't resolve the position.
It's also possible if you waited longer it would have worked, as without A-GPS your device has to receive the almanacs from the satellites and this takes a few minutes.

Actually, most geostationary satellites (which would be the ones dishes are pointed at because they don't move in the sky) are on equatorial orbits.

However, I think you are making a mistaken assumption of how the dishes work. That thing on the arm is the receiver and the incoming transmissions are shaped towards it by the dish. Seeing it is usually mounted on an angle pointing towards center of the dish that means what the dish is pointing at is at an upwards angle away from the center of the dish.

Celestial phenomenons are observable on a first hand basis.

Take the Moon, for instance. From Moon rise to Moon set its size does not change in any significant perceivable way as it rises from the horizon, reaches peak and then sinks below the horizon.
This is an impossible observation for a small, near object moving toward and away from the observer. There is a reason why the "proof" videos they use are only of the Sun, it's so bright it washes out the sensor until its reducing light at sunset reveals the true disk of the sun.

How can rockets hit the dome if the Sun and Moon are inside the dome and more than 3000 km away from the flat Earth?

The rockets would have to go past the Sun.

they're outside the dome!
But the stars are on the dome. That would mean the stars would pass in front of the Moon, and that doesn't happen.

The same material that they use to hold up blimps. These are big weather balloons we're talking about, here's a video of NASA launching one: youtube.com/watch?v=s2zFoQ5MfOc

Here's a video of a satellite crashing in Brazil - what's that on the end of it? youtube.com/watch?v=VHBxxnuXTJ4

There aren't balloons all over the place, particularly over the oceans and that's why GPS doesn't work for planes over the Atlantic ocean. It's much, much easier (and cheaper) to launch a balloon rather than a rocket into "space" where it has to orbit perfectly with the rotation of the earth to remain geostationary, or if it's orbiting must withstand the extreme temperatures and avoid space debris etc.It's complete fantasy that started out in sci-fi.

Except they don't. There's no buoys out that far, and even if they were there's no way to keep them in position enough to act as a GPS system. You cant anchor in the mudsle of the ocean. You'd need some kind of remote positioning system to keep them in the right place (sound familiar?) and a mechanism to move under their own power.

No it doesn't.
And your video does nothing but (poorly) appeal to intuition. There's no actual calculation of how much retaliative motion would be needed to produce viable apparent motion. It's just a guy shouting a lot of numbers one after the other, without actually understand the subject.

That's a reflection. Reflections aren't the size of the thing thing they're reflecting - that's why you can see the Moon reflected in a puddle when the moon is much bigger than the puddle. Most people figure this kind of thing out at about the same time they learn how to read and write.

Sail
That reminds me, long distance sailing used to be dangerous and difficult as fuck because of the longtitude problem. Basically celestial navigation allowed for accurate determination of latitudinal position, but not longitudinal. In the end this was solved with the invention of the marine chronometer allowing accurate timekeeping at sea.

I guess in the flat Earth model this wouldn't have been a problem, but irl it was.

MSM is wrong on many things because it's manned by uninformed working Joe layman normies not so dissimilar as yourself.

Also it's a typical low-IQ brainlet trait to automatically assume some entity of authority is lying, when in reality a lot of times they're just simply uninformed or wrong.

At least I typically see it in lower intellect proles to knee-jerk assume a false statement being a lie instead of just being incorrect. Maybe your brain needed a little more development to grasp that mommy and daddy aren't liars, just only humans.

"Lisa" is standing on the North pole, so of course Polaris would be straight overhead, and it wouldn't matter what time of year or what time of any day. It could be on the equinoxes just as well.

Similarly, if you make a permanent equatorial mount for a telescope, you will design it such that the axis of rotation points directly at the the north celestial pole. This angle will be the same as your latitude.

Until you get to the equator and farther south. Then the north celestial pole is below the horizon, so you have to align with the south celestial pole, and the drive mechanism will turn the opposite direction.

Which wouldn't work on a flat Earth. Except at the north pole, the axis angle would not be your latitude's, because you are not creeping around a ball as you move south, but just farther away from a point in the sky,

Harmless_Venom

I have a perfect experiment for flattards. Some guy circumnavigates the globe in a plane at the equator. Some other guy in the same model of plane traces the "ice ring" (presumably its allowed to be within your range of vision. Presumably the second trip ought to take much longer. A 5 year old could come up with this.

I have often wondered just what a flatearther considers as proof.
They will often link videos to back up their claims, but when shown other videos that debunk those videos or show different results they call them fake.

What is the logic behind using one as evidence and calling another fake? Is it just confirmation bias? If I made an easily debunkable video claiming to support flat earth would they also defend it religiously.

That gives me an idea.

Virgin globalist "proofs" require: pseudo-science, brainwashing from an early age, arrogance, ad hominem, naivety, inability to think critically, CGI, emotional investment, nihilism/atheism/edginess

Chad flat earth proofs require: Natural science (practical experiments), logic, critical thinking, real photos and video, an understanding of how the eyes work (perspective), not afraid of being thought of as "crazy", intelligent design (not religious).
