After rapper B.o.B. took to Twitter.com to inform his millions of followers that the earth is flat, prominent astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson weighed in by dropping science and facts on B.o.B.
“Earth’s curve indeed blocks 150 (not 170) ft of Manhattan. But most buildings in midtown are waaay taller than that,” Tyson tweeted. “Polaris is gone by 1.5 deg S. Latitude. You’ve never been south of Earth’s Equator, or if so, you’ve never looked up. Duude — to be clear: Being five centuries regressed in your reasoning doesn’t mean we all can’t still like your music.”
Not to be deterred, B.o.B. rushed to a studio after midnight to record a diss track featuring none other than Tyson himself speaking at a science conference.
Basically what Tyson says is the earth is not a perfectly round sphere — but we already know that. He said the earth is shaped more like a pear — which makes sense if we know the earth is not perfectly round.
