Yes, it's true. Some people among us believe that the Earth is flat despite all the evidence to the contrary, and they may be more numerous than you think. In 2020, the Flat Earth Society, a group of flat earthers, will go on a special cruise to discover what they think is the edge of the world.

"Beyond the ice wall is a topic of great interest to the Flat Earth Society," the group of "Flat Earthers" explains on their official website. Flat Earthers, who are convinced that our planet is a large disk and not a globe, were allegedly planning to sail to what they believe is an ice wall in Antarctica. They believe the ice wall is the edge of the world. What the Flat Earth Society qualifies as its "biggest, boldest, best adventure yet" is scheduled for next year, and believers around the globe are getting excited about their journey.

With this trip, the Flat Earth Society hopes to convince the world that the earth isn't round. But there may be a little obstacle standing in the way of their their ambitious trip! All existing navigation systems and nautical maps are based on the fact that our planet is spherical. "Nautical charts are designed with that in mind: that the Earth is round," Henk Keijer, a former cruise ship captain declared to The Guardian.

Details of the unusual expedition will surely be discussed during the 2019 Flat Earth International Conference which will take place next November in Dallas, USA. For those interested or simply intrigued by the Flat Earth Society, a livestream of the conference is available for around £30.

Contrary to previous reports, Flat Earth conspiracy theorist Robbie Davidson has denied that the cruise will travel all the way to Antarctica. Instead, he claims that the cruise will simply be a networking and socializing opportunity for Flat Earthers to mingle.
