Is the earth a floating hot tub?
Possibly, at least according to the Convex Earth theory as rendered above.
More than 2,000 years ago, the ancient Greeks proved the Earth was round.
Could they — and NASA — be wrong?
Turns out our planet is actually convex — at least according to seven years of new scientific research documented in Convex Earth: The Documentary, released online today by Brazil’s Dakila Research and Zigurats Technology Center.
You can also watch the feature-length film below. Although publicly sharable via YouTube, the producers stipulate that we “deactivate” the “monetization” (which we couldn’t find) and note the following as the source: “Terra convexa is an independent research of Dákila Researches www.dakila.com.br and Centro Tecnológico Zigurats ctzbrasil.com.br originally published in www.terraconvexa.com.br and convexearth.org.” Done!
Dictionary.com defines “convex” as “having a surface that is curved or rounded outward.”
So what exactly is the difference between a round earth and a convex earth? Judging by the image atop this story, quite a lot!
Actually, the Dákila scientists say the earth is convex in land areas and flat in watery areas.
Which brings us to the proponents of Flat Earth, Concave Earth and Hollow Globe theories, about which space flight entrepreneur Elon Musk is hedging his bets.
Tired of all this debate about the shape of the Earth? Maybe a whole new continent is more believable! We haven’t had time to watch the whole documentary ourselves, but Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira, founder of Dakila Pesquisas, said it also reveals “the discovery of a new continent sealed off by a great wall of ice. New knowledge will also be demonstrated concerning the sun, the moon and the constellations.”
