Many flat earthers claim all images of earth from space are fake. Of course, if the earth is flat, they MUST be fake. But that is about as far as their analysis goes. But one particular argument they make is based on incomplete information. Neil DeGrasse Tyson said that the earth is not perfectly spherical, but oblate, or fat in the middle. And not only that, but it is wider below the equator than above, which he described as pear-shaped. But, as flat earthers point out, all images of earth appear completely spherical. So which is it? Watch to find out. I also address the claim that satellites should be visible in photos of earth. Should they be? Flat earth debunked again.
