THERE IS NO OTHER EXPLAINATION

If you're referring to Cook's voyages, then the actual explanation is he didn't just circumnavigate Antarctica. He made many detours mapping various islands, backtracking, and resupplying.

Note that each had many detours and also included travel to and from England.

But others have circumnavigated it. There are cruises that do so and a regular sailing race. None of those take as long as it should on the mythical flat Earth map.

Why do you lie? they only go through Dubai if you choose an airline with hubs in Dubai.
Just found a flight on South African Airways, flight 280 on Dec 9 from Johannesburg to Perth nonstop, 9 hours 25 minutes. Found another on Qantas from Johannesburg to Sydney, flight 64 also on Dec 9, 11 hours 45 minutes. So that makes you a liar on South Africa to Australia.

For South America to South Africa, looking at the same day, found nonstop from Sao Paulo to Johannesburg, Latam Airlines 8058, 8 hrs 45 minutes.

So no, through Dubai is NOT the shortest way.

Glad you mentioned that. I watched again and observed the northern African continent throughout the sequence which is fairly unobscured by cloud cover. It is very high in December and comes down much lower by April and therefore showing the seasons. No offense, but typical to flat earthers, not observing carefully.

Re: Prove or disprove FLAT EARTH
Proof
-----
1. Buy a digital scale and a 1 kg weigth.
2. Travel to the equator.
3. Put the weigth on the scale and calibrate it.
4. Travel to the north pole.
5. Put the weigth on the scale.
6. If we live on a globe, the scale should now show 997.44 gram

Derivation
----------
_eq = Equator
_np = North pole

Radius at equator:
r_eq = 6378.1 km = 6378100 m

Radius at north pole (latitude 75)
r_np = r_eq * cos(75 * PI / 180) = 1650773.75 m


Perimeter at equator:
P_eq = 2 * PI * r_eq = 40074784.21 m

Perimeter at north pole:
P_np = 2 * PI * r_np = 10372117.38 m


Velocity at equator:
v_eq = P_eq / 24 / 60 / 60 = 463.83 m/s

Velocity at north pole:
v_np = P_np / 24 / 60 / 60 = 120.05 m/s


Gravity at equator:
G_eq = 1/9.7805 = 0.10224 kp

Gravity at north pole:
G_np = 1/9.8322 = 0.10170 kp


Centrifugal force at equator:
f_eq = 1 * (v_eq * v_eq / r_eq) * G_eq = 0.0034487563922927815 kg

Centrifugal force at north pole:
f_np = 1 * (v_np * v_np / r_np) * G_np = 0.0008879103171608256 kg

Difference
f = (f_eq - f_np) * 1000 = 2.561 g

WHY ARE THERE NO AIRLINE FLIGHTS FROM SOUTH AMERICA

TO SOUTH AFRICA

OR FROM SOUTH AFRICA DIRECT TO AUSTRALIA

THEY ALL GO TO DUBAI

THAT'S BECAUSE THAT IS THE SHORTEST WAY
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77891168


Why do you lie? they only go through Dubai if you choose an airline with hubs in Dubai.
Just found a flight on South African Airways, flight 280 on Dec 9 from Johannesburg to Perth nonstop, 9 hours 25 minutes. Found another on Qantas from Johannesburg to Sydney, flight 64 also on Dec 9, 11 hours 45 minutes. So that makes you a liar on South Africa to Australia.

For South America to South Africa, looking at the same day, found nonstop from Sao Paulo to Johannesburg, Latam Airlines 8058, 8 hrs 45 minutes.

So no, through Dubai is NOT the shortest way.
