Unexpected Assumption in NASA Documents: Flat Earth?
The Oblate Spheroid Assumption
For most, the assumption is that the earth is spherical (or an oblate spheroid) that spins around like a top. This assumption is taught in all schools and universities and is accepted almost universally in all nations.
The earth is a spinning oblate spheroid rotating around the sun in the empty vacuum of space.
The Non-Rotating, Flat Earth Assumption
Something funny happens when it comes to real-world calculations. In order for any accurate study of flight and aircraft models, the assumption must be that the craft is flying above a "flat, non-rotating earth". These are their words, not mine.
If this assumption is not consistent with reality, why wouldn't they assume a spherical (oblate spheroid) rotating earth? The math should work with a spherical assumption... right?
Why assume a non-rotating flat earth? It is perhaps because the math doesn't work on a globe? It should work, right? The globe (oblate spheroid) is consistent with the reality we are presented with. The reality of the world that most have accepted.
From the NASA Website
There is a seriously inconvenient assumption made when it comes to mathematical calculations concerning airplanes, rockets and ballistics. In order to accurately calculate their trajectory or movement, they have to assume a flat, non-rotating earth.
They assume this. Most people would never accept this as an assumption. Why would NASA assume this of all organizations?
No Need To Explain this Assumption?
The multiple data analysts felt no need to explain or defend their "ridiculous" assumption. Why?
These documents can be found on the NASA website:
If the non-rotating flat earth assumption is not consistent with reality, shouldn't these documents be destroyed and replaced with new calculations using a rotating spherical (oblate spheroid) earth assumption? Why does NASA seem to be fine with an assumed non-rotating flat earth?
Should we change the math? Or maybe there is a better option: Perhaps we should re-evaluate our assumptions, so we can be consistent with mathmatical reality.
Something to consider.
Bless the Most High!
Teach Your Children Liberty from Sin
We encourage parents to teach their children principles of Godliness, beginning with the Word and an understanding who God is and what His Son has done to form a relationship with us.
No one can lay a foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, or straw, his workmanship will be evident, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will prove the quality of each man’s work. 1 Corinthians 3:11-13
Teach Your children Liberty from Tyranny
Second to this is the principle of self-determination and freedom, lest we loose the ability to teach our children the first principle in future generations. Our children read the Tuttle Twin books, specifically to learn libertarian principles, which most people learn later in life. These books are useful for our family, and yours, to teach children concepts that seem complicated, but are made simple in these books. I am an affiliate for Libertas Publishing, your purchase will help our family grow financially.
