First Ever Photo From “Space” Shows Flat Earth
It is claimed from “official sources” that a “V-2 Missle” was launched from the New Mexico desert on October 24, 1946, and that it took this black-and-white photo below. Supposedly this photo was taken at an altitude of 65 miles.
This photo shows a completely flat horizon… no curvature whatsoever. Notice how they present the photo at an angle in order to give this sort of slight illusion of curvature. But if you hold up a straight edge to the horizon line in the photo, you will see that the horizon is a completely straight line.
Just in case you think this photo has been doctored by “conspiracy theorists,” click the following link to see the same photo presented on “Air and Space Magazine’s” website, which is run by the “Smithsonian,” which is obviously a controlled mainstream media outlet: First Photo From Space. Check out the “panorama” that they put together from a 1948 V-2 photo-shoot. They added some curvature to some of these photos to make sure that you know that the Earth is a globe.
I do believe that this photo is most likely real, and I do believe that they really could have been 65 miles up in the air. But this “missle” is not in “space” as they claim. It is in Earth’s atmosphere. So what they’re trying to accomplish two things in this fake article: convince you that there is such a thing as “no-atmosphere space,” and that the shape of the earth is a sphere (of course it’s supposedly “pear-shaped” now!).
Also, one more point I wanted to make… this photo was supposed snapped in 1946, but it is a whole photo, not a composite. And now here we are in 2016 — 70 years later — and NASA claims that the available technology in all of their various cameras and satellites only allows them to take small snapshots that they then have to piece together to form a whole, composite shot. I guess that the “technology” was better in 1946, and has regressed since then…
So about 343,200 feet up. Just about 10x the height the people who can’t let go of the ball say you must be to see the curve. Cool!
Good find here. Thanks!
truthfarmer, you need a reasonably wide field of view to see the curvature at all, maybe 60 degrees. Do you know the field of view for this photograph? From the notes on one of the images at http://www.airspacemag.com/space/the-first-photo-from-space-13721411/?no-ist the field of view is about 16 degrees, so you would expect the curvature to be minimal.
Good point about them putting the picture on an angle, so for those not watching,
they might buy into globe. But as you showed with a ruler, it is flat.
Is there any way this can be done again today? To go say 50 miles up,
is that very difficult to do this? I am unaware of the logistics of this.

If the Earth is flat, why is there an edge at all? Shouldn’t we see all the way to the “ice wall”? Or are we just seeing the illuminated part? If so, flat Earth theory says that is a circular region, so it SHOULD have a curved edge? What are you trying to say the photo DOES show?
Maybe I don’t understand….wouldn’t be the first time! But from 65 miles up,
you’d see a long way, much more than say 10 miles up, but
ALL the way?
What this picture showed was no curvature.
If it was 65 miles up in space on a globe of any kind, the picture should
show quite a lot of curvature and in fact just curve right out of the picture.
You’d take a picture and get it curving down at each side.
This did not happen, and should have if it was a globe, even
a pear shaped or oblate globe, and
shouldn’t they know? We had that perfect circle for a while,
so what happened anyway?
The point I am making is why on the flat Earth would there be a hard edge? The claim is that this image does not support a globe. That depends upon such things as the angle of view in the image: a short section of gentle curve would look “straight”. My point is that it doesn’t support any flat Earth model I’ve seen put forward. How does a flat Earth have an “edge” at all?
I agree, if the earth is a sort of flat circle then there WOULD be a curve. Having a straight edge does not make any sense at the moment to me.
