When Elon Musk's SpaceX launched its Falcon Heavy rocket earlier this week with a Tesla Roadster convertible onboard, it was one of the most talked about stories in the world of science. But for many of the world's self-styled flat-earthers, SpaceX's amazing feat might not have even happened, and might have been nothing more than a "good car ad" or a fake publicity stunt.
In a report that centered on SpaceX's Falcon Heavy launch and how flat-earth adherents responded to the event, the Miami Herald explained the scientific beliefs of these individuals, which counter the "resounding evidence" presented over the years to prove our planet is round. As noted, many flat-earthers see Earth as a "large, stationary disk surrounded by an ice wall," and cite observations, such as the inability to physically see evidence of Earth's curvature and the lack of convexity in liquid water, to back up such beliefs.

Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster was blasted off into space with a mission of taking its place in heavens where it will journey in an elliptical orbit between Earth and Mars.
Once that bright red car got up into space it turns out that "the final engine blast farther than expected," according to The Atlantic. This overshoot seemed to suggest the car's final destination was not in the intended asteroid belt between the Earth and Mars but between Mars and Jupiter.
