If the earth is pear shaped like Neil degrade says it is, is that proof we have only faked pictures of Earth?

  • Do your research.

    Neil Degrasse Tyson suggested the the Earth is -ever, ever, ever so slightly- "Pear-Shaped".
    The Earth forms the shape of a geoid. Pear-shaped is a relative term in this context.
    The shape of the Earth depends on sea levels.
    We live on an imperfect pear oblate spheroid.
    It's hardly noticeable at all. It's all based on the measurements, not how it looks from far away. The Earth is very obviously an oblate spheroid, the pear part is discrete.

  • I do believe this is a loaded question

    I also have no idea who this "kook" is, but you are saying "suppose" meaning "hypothetical, the earth really is pear shaped," at which point it would be yes, we have all been fooled by the government into thinking we are on a globe! HA! TAKE THAT WORLD! But seriously, why would NASA want us to believe that? What purpose does it serve? Whoever started this opinion needs t spend less time watching TV.

  • I have no idea who that kook is, but he's wrong.

    The earth is not pear shaped. The hundreds of photographs we have of earth show that it's round. Now, we know that it's not a perfect sphere thanks to NASA's satellites and astronauts who have shown and recorded that it's a very rough sphere because of the seas and mountains. They've also recorded that Earth bulges near the equator because of the gravitational mass, which alone should disprove the pear shaped theory.
