Put a flat earthier into space

A bath full of water is all that's needed to be fair but that's just the tip of the iceberg.

So you can measure the bath is perefectly flat with no curve, not even thousandths of a mm difference? Otherwise how do you know it is flat and level
Do you think Neil is mistaken?

Don't take this the wrong way but I'm going to bypass anything you say from this point on. Hopefully you won't be too distraught. ;)

Neil DeGraase Tyson (i am assuming that is who you are referring to as i cannot see the embedded item) says the earth is round, you cant pick and choose which bits of science you believe

Just throw a flat board in and place a digital spirit level on it for starters.
However you can also go and us a set of water level tubes over a larger distance. Or you can use a lake or even an iced lake/pond.

There's so much can be done and all of it shows level.
However, simple logic is all that's required to know it would never be level on a globe no matter how big the globe is said to be.

Aye he does say the Earth is an oblate spheroid. Pear shaped I think he mentioned.
However he also said you cannot see the curve of your globe ...well I'm sure you've seen the video.

So, make your mind up what you want to go with.
Is he lying or mistaken and you lot are the one's that are correct?

Or are you all mistaken on this and you can't see curvature because there isn't any. Maybe...eh?

Try it then but on a lake. Then come back and share your answers. That said the first bit is so incredibly wrong it doesnt bode well, that would tell you the board is level to a fairly coarse margin, nothing at all about the water underneath. You also have no clue about the level of accuracy needed.

The level of accuracy is plenty enough to understand that water does not conform to a globe. It''s as simple as that and no amount of experiments will show otherwise.
Only magical mysteries can make it do what we're told it does. Like fictional gravity but that doesn't even do a decent job.
I'm not worried about proving anything to you. You are welcome to prove it to yourself or don't. I'm easy on it.

That makes your argument baseless as he would argue as you went higher you would see the curvature.
No, it means I agree with what he said about the height he said.
If you said it I would also agree. Or anyone else.
The point being, many people adhere to what he says as truth but use the passenger flights as a proof of them seeing curvature, so I use their own idol against them. Simple really.
He is simply talking about what can be seen up to a specific altitude. You are taking his comments entirely out of context to reach a flawed conclusion
Nope. I'm taking his comments exactly how they should be taken.

What level of accuracy would you need to be able to measure to then?
