The Star Trek Commander was named for him. Oh, the irony of it all!
“(The Earth) seemed a flat disc with an upturned edge.” ~ Dr. Auguste Piccard (1884 – 1962), Swiss physicist, inventor and explorer, on his return from his 1931 record-setting balloon flight of about 15.8 miles.
Piccard made a total of twenty-seven balloon flights, finally reaching a then-record altitude of 23 miles. Wikipedia oddly enough (sarcasm) does not mention his description of the shape of the Earth.
I watched a video on YouTube that went into the occult symbolism in Star Wars and Star Trek, and how those two popular series are first and foremost meant for ball-earth propaganda. And just to covertly laugh at us — the dumb sheeple — as they often do, the name they chose for the captain of the Enterprise in the Star Trek: The Next Generation was Captain Piccard.
They know full well that the Earth is a flat, motionless plane.
