NEW YORK: A rapper from the United States has launched campaign drives to observe that Earth is flat.
The rapper B.o.B, whose name is Bobby Ray Simmons Jr., wishes to $200,000 (£150,000) on a funding website.
The celebrity has also started to call himself “Flat Earth Bob”.
He managed to raise a little more than $650.
He said, “I’m starting this GoFundMe because I would like to send one, if not multiple satellites, as far into space as I can, or into orbit as I can, to find the curve,”.
“I’m looking for the curve,” he added.
The curve, which the singer is referring to is a repitive theme in Flat Earthers’ conspiracy theories in which theorists believe that the curve of the Earth would be more visible to the eye.
Some of those who have donated to the campaign have expressed their support.
“When/if you do make sure you let me know,” one person who donated $20 wrote. “I’ve been trying to tell folks that there is no curve, therefore the Earth is not a globe”.
