Science is the Process of Elimination, through Experimentation
After sharing the many 'glitches' from the recent SpaceX event (especially the clip showing a mouse aboard Elon's rocket), a long-time acquaintance (and NASA groupie) suggested that I was "denying the science" (that the Earth is a spinning ball hurling through infinite space). I reminded him that "science" is the process of eliminating theories by conducting experiments, in the hope of drawing the most logical conclusion. I then suggested to this fellow (who has a background in photography and video editing) that he conduct a simple experiment himself, with his high-powered zoom lens.
The experiment below, which anyone can do, eliminates the theory that the Earth is 'shaped' 288 feet at 20 miles.
