They knew how big a sphere the earth was thanks to geometry, deep wells and the sun standing over head at noon. I'll leave it to others to explain how that worked.

I still maintain that this is a scam, that rocket with a man on board won't go 50 feet but there has to be a way to extract $ from the gullible.

Remember P.T. Barnum "There is a sucker born every minute"
It is a scam of sorts. He started a gofunme account or similar last year and couldn't raise the money. Then suddenly, he becomes a flat earther and gets some $150K in funds from Research Flat Earth. Can't see him ever getting into orbit, and if by some slim chance he does - I doubt he'll make it back.
