Proving we live on a Globe using only paper, scissors and glue to build an Equinox Sundial. I show in an interactive animation how such a Sundial works everywhere on the Globe and give you the blueprints to build your own Equinox Sundial. Thanks to Wolfie6020 who made a video introducing this page.

In the coordinate system of the sun, the moon tracks a weird path, sometimes speeding up, sometimes slowing down. At the nearer side to the sun the moon gets attracted more by the sun than at the further side. The sun is much bigger than the earth and its attracting force is bigger than that of the earth. So why is it that the moon does not left earth's orbit and crash into the sun? I give the detailed explanation in this article, which includes an interactive simulation.

This calculator can be used to compute the effective gravitational acceleration, the pure gravitational acceleration and the centrifugal acceleration for any point on the Reference Ellipsoid of the earth for both surface and at altitude according to the model WGS84.

Use this calculator to calculate and visualize what we can see of a target of a certain size and distance from any observer altitude, taking refraction into account. You can compare the results between flat earth and globe earth. Many more values are calculated and you can customize and store the settings.

The Cavendish experiment can be used to show that mass attracts mass according to Newton's law of universal gravitation. Creating such an experiment is very challenging because the gravitational forces involved are tiny, about in the nano Newton range. This simulation can be used to plan an experiment and to verify whether the outcome is likely the result of gravity or other influences. The math involved is explained and the source code of the simulation is available.

Special Relativity was originally based on two postulates: the Principle of Relativity and the constancy of the speed of light. In this article I explain an attempt to drop the light postulate from Special Relativity. I show that the speed of light is a general speed limit. The value for this speed limit is a consequence of how we define length and time units.

This App is my Contribution to the Search and Rescue Contest of Wolfie6020. The App computes a Search Pattern from given Locations of an Airport Base and a Most Probable Position (MPP) of a search target, given some Airplane and Mission Parameters.

**Note: This App may not be used for real Search and Rescue Operations. It is for demonstration purposes only!**

There is a famous formula that Flat Earthers frequently use to calculate the curvature of the Globe Earth. This formula is an approximation. Here I derive the exact formulas and the approximation 8" per miles squared and compare the results in a Calcularor Form.

Here is an interactive Flat Earth Model that can explain Sunrise, Sunset, Moonrise, Moonset, Moon Phases, Moon's apparent rotation, Sun's position on Equinox, Seasons, Solar and Lunar Eclipses, Star Trails, 24 hours Day/Night at the Northpole and Antarctica, Celestial Poles, why people south of the equator can see the same Stars rotate clockwise around a singe celestial pole at the same time at different continents. But the Model still has some unsolvable flaws.

This page shows scenes computed with a Globe Model and a Flat-Earth Model of the Earth and compares them with corresponding Real Images of the same scene to see, which Model-Predictions match Reality.

For us living beings on the surface of the earth, the earth looks flat. For this reason the so-called Flat-Earther (FE) claim that the earth is a flat plane rather than a globe.

With the help of a simulation, I show, up to what altitudes the earth appears flat, although it actually has a spherical shape. Using some animations, you can learn how to recognize the curvature of the earth, or in what circumstances it appears flat. The simulation can also simulate refraction. I prove by means of photos, how the simulation depicts reality, by superimposing the simulation results onto photos.

To comprehend how curvature on a globe is expected to look like, we have to comprehend how perspective distortions look on a Globe. In this article you can play with an App showing a grid of a Globe Model to see how it is distorted by perspective especially when viewing from low altitudes.

For the first time in 50 years, a technical trick is used to create true color images of the entire earth with the help of the new weather satellite Himawari 8 (Japan) and combine them into video sequences. The pictures and video sequences are freely available. Here, a sequence of original shots and a video in true colors can be viewed and I explain how the true color images are computed from the original data.

According to geodetic measurments the shape of the earth is not exactly a sphere, but slightly bulged at the equator - oblate spheroid. In this article I show, that this small deviation from a perfect sphere can be measured on high resolution satellite images.

This App lets you create a Flight Plan based on the Flat Earth Model.

**Note: This Flight Plans must not be used in real flights, because the plans produced by this App are not accurate, because the earth is not flat but a globe.**
