Users on Twitter couldn’t resist after Saturday’s historic launch from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, when live images beamed to Earth showed the Dragon crew capsule orbiting Earth’s curvature.

A Twitter user known as The Noggin wrote in a post that focused on the movement, saying the images were indisputable because they were “ completely live. ”

‘Hey #FlatEarth, we’ve just launched two Americans into space completely live, with tons of live images. It absolutely could not be fake. Suck it, flerfs, ‘the user tweeted, claiming to be a Marine Corps veteran, and tweets under the handle @USMCNoggin.

While others in turn discussed a good dose of ridicule, astronauts Bob Behnken (49) and Doug Hurley (53) arrived at the International Space Station on Sunday, joining the mission commander, Chris Cassidy.

It was the first time that SpaceX, the private space company founded by billionaire Elon Musk, launched a manned mission to space.

It wasn’t long before a Twitter user known as The Flat Earther popped up and confirmed the movement’s conviction by tweeting the question, “Why do you think Earth is a globe?”

“Because you see Photoshop images of it,” the user wrote under the handle @TheFlatEartherr.

“Have you ever tried to prove the world independently? If not, you have no evidence of a globe, “explains Flat Earth.

One of the most visible members of the ‘Mad’ movement Mike Hughes died earlier this year trying to prove that the world was flat on a homemade rocket that crashed after launch.
