Whether or not you're a part of the Flat Earth fan club, these funny memes about the absurdity the Flat Earth theory are sure to make you giggle. Checkmate, atheists.
Sometimes it feels a bit like beating a dead horse with all of this flat-earther trolling, but it's just too easy. Why are there so many people in this world who refuse to believe in science? We'll probably never fully know. So anyway, please enjoy these ridiculous flat-earther memes that favor science!
When you start thinking about your life in the grand scheme of things, nothing truly matters because we're all just tiny specks of dust existing on a stupid little rock that's floating in circles around a slightly bigger rock that happens to be on fire. Anyway, ignore that existential bit and enjoy some fascinating nerdy facts about space!
Though downgraded to dwarf planet status, Pluto has been on the comeback trail of late. Many issues arose with the reclassification in 2006, including that only 424 of the 9000 members of the international organization in charge of making such decisions voted. In addition, immediately after the resolution, hundreds of planetary scientists petitioned against the changed classification. The problem began when the body changed the definition of what constitutes a planet, and due to Pluto lacking several of these features, it was demoted.
A recent mission to Pluto by NASA called New Horizons, recently gave us our closest and clearest look of Pluto and the surrounding planetary bodies in its area and orbit.
If you've been in the dark (ha, get it?) about the news lately, then you may have missed the announcement yesterday that the first-ever images of a black hole were captured - a feat that many scientists believed was impossible until recently.
While this news is obviously interesting AF to nearly anyone with eyes, memers seem to care more about the fact that the image itself is a little more blurry than they'd like. That, and the fact that the cloudy pic has been making for some pretty great (and very stupid) dank memes.
An excited Elon Musk tweeted about how he's ready to occupy Mars, but the biggest problem was that what we're looking at in said tweet is actually a blood moon. I mean, that'd be dope too. But Twitter was ready to call him out for his funny little fail, and here we are.
A recent study published online revealed that something is chilling about 186 miles beneath the surface of the Moon. The Twitter account for the "Destiny" video game had a point to make when CNN tweeted about it, and the thread that ensued was full of gems.
Do we think this could be the start of something far more extraterrestrial than we ever thought possible? We should just leave that shit on the moon buried and alone.
...And no, it's not Pluto (RIP). Researchers have found evidence that there may very well be a ninth planet, aptly named "Planet Nine" or "Planet X," in our solar system that's about the size of Neptune.
The catch? No one has been able to find it. Yes, you read that correctly. This hypothetical planet is so far away that it takes between 10,000 and 20,000 earth-years for it to complete a full rotation around the sun.
Sadly, no scientist has been able to concretely prove the existence of such planet; they've simply predicted its existence based off of the similarly peculiar orbits of several objects in the Kuiper belt.
Still, we're going to hold onto hope that Planet Nine exists because that's just straight-up cool as hell.
If there was ever any compelling evidence that the moon landings never happened, then this is it, folks. You heard it here. No human ever landed on the moon and this guy proved it with a cornucopia of evidence.
