    Actually, what would be cool is if someone started a kickstarter campaign to raise funds to do this experiment, to travel around Antarctica. I doubt they'd get government approval to do it, but then the question could be raised "why not?"

    I'm wondering why someone would need government approval?

    I don't have three hours... what's being debunked? The flat earth theory, or the theory that debunks it?

    ^ I listened to maybe 1/2 hour of it yesterday. Jist is anti-flat earther, it's a psyop to discredit truthers broad brush... my first guess too, as I said above. But there was an Irish (?) participant who seemed to be conflicted. I turned it off before I got a better bead on him. I don't expect to return to it, not enough interest.

    Because you'll get blown out of the water by one of their patrols if you don't!
    If you get approval (if it's even possible $$$), you will only see what THEY WANT you to see and go to only the places THEY WANT you to go anyways so why ask?

    I don't know how you would get there except as part of a scientific expedition. I think Australia sends down a big crew each "summer" and leaves a skeleton crew during the winter. Not sure what they keep doing down there.
    The temperature in Antarctica has reached −89 °C (−129 °F). There are no permanent human residents, but anywhere from 1,000 to 5,000 people reside throughout the year at the research stations scattered across the continent.
    Antarctica is a de facto condominium, governed by parties to the Antarctic Treaty System that have consulting status. Twelve countries signed the Antarctic Treaty in 1959, and thirty-eight have signed it since then. The treaty prohibits military activities and mineral mining, prohibits nuclear explosions and nuclear waste disposal, supports scientific research, and protects the continent's ecozone. Ongoing experiments are conducted by more than 4,000 scientists from many nations.
    Travel is largely by small or medium ship, focusing on specific scenic locations with accessible concentrations of iconic wildlife. A total of 37,506 tourists visited during the 2006–07 Austral summer with nearly all of them coming from commercial ships. The number was predicted to increase to over 80,000 by 2010

    Anytime I'm in doubt I go outside and give it a little shake.

    I got through 41 minutes. I'm done. Bad flow to the discussion.

    Is Dr. Astro the Dr. Astro from GLP?

    They start off talking about parallax. This is the Flat Earther's take. The ship they show in the debunker vid does not zoom in on the ship.
