Ok, that makes me curious.  If you were taken to space and saw a vast flat plane from LEO altitudes it seems that would be pretty clear evidence.
For sure, but that's the "we were both wrong" scenario. Considering the electromagnetic acceleration theory, a vast flat plane is not what I'd expect to visually perceive (though I'm sure many FE'ers would). If that were to happen, sure, case closed; but I personally consider this to be an unlikely outcome.

Would I still be willing to give it a go on the off chance? Yeah, why not? It's not like I'm afraid of blowing up in a tragic accident.

Good point, if UA is a thing there is no telling what you would see.

From what I can see there are a few that think that's the ideal outcome!

What can I say? I'm a charmer.

Hindsight says no to the starship.  That thing is like a firecracker.

Ah, as much as I hate to say it though, you only live once. I would totally do it if given the chance. I probably have more chance of dying from a skiing, kayaking or cycling accident anyway, at least if I died in a rocket explosion it would be something interesting to put on my grave/urn.
Tom is wrong most of the time. Hardly big news, don't you think?

I would send up the crazy Flat Earther (shown on youtube) that had the meltdown at Starbucks with a supposed NASA employee and got kicked out.

If Mad Mike were still alive, I would also send him up. He gave it a go with his steam-powered rocket and had more balls than anyone; to do what he did. Yes, call him crazy but he had passion and conviction.
