New Delhi:

In yet another post that started a debate between round-earthers and flat-earthers, an astronaut shared incredible view of the earth from space. Showing the ‘ever-changing skyline’ on the space station, Jessica Meir tweeted the photos, writing: “The first orientation may make more sense to you, but to me this is the ever-changing skyline on @Space_Station (photo 3). Perspective.

“The constant traffic of visiting vehicles makes for diverse vistas.”

While many social media were in awe over this incredible view of the blue earth, many flat-earthers argued that the image is a result of ‘fish eye lens’.

Wikipedia describes fisheye lens is an ultra wide-angle lens that produces strong visual distortion intended to create a wide panoramic or hemispherical image.

Insisting that the astronaut used fish eye lens, one flat-earther tweeted, "So from 400km above the earth you can view the whole round earth? Yeah very believable."

"Nice try with the fish eye, but it's flat."

A third wrote: "Yes. That's fish eye lens. Make earth looks like round. Actually, the earth is Flat!"
