Flat Earthers Claim Tim Peake Didn't Go To Space On 'This Morning'

Three men have appeared on This Morning earlier today to claim the world is flat, Tim Peake never actually went to space, Neil deGrasse Tyson is an actor, and gravity doesn't exist...


Gary Heather, Darren Nesbit, and Martin Kenny are part of the group The Flat Earthers and they think that not only is the world flat, there is a conspiracy to cover it up.

In short, that's a whole cluster bomb of crazy to be unleashing that early in the day.


They made claims that Tim Peake actually filmed his trip to space in a Hollywood studio after Holly Willoughby said that interviewing the spaceman was one of the highlights of her career.

Holly told them: "One of the highlights of my career was interviewing Major Tim Peake up in space on the International Space Station.

"He brought in his beautiful book, you could see the curvature of the earth, you very clearly see it's a circle.


"So, are you telling me that this interview with him...I'm just talking to somebody who's just made that up or wasn't actually there?"

Of course, Holly is just a stupid globehead and doesn't know that OF COURSE he didn't.

Nesbit replied: "Yeah, he's not in outer space, no."

Holly quizzed them further: "He's not in outer space? Where is he then?"


Heather chimed in: "In a Hollywood studio type, maybe here. Maybe where we are now, [at the ITV studios]."

Nesbit continued: "Not necessarily in a Hollywood studio. If you look at people like Tim Peake and Neil Armstrong, they're all military guys. They're not scientists."

Now, that's just not true - not everyone who goes up to the International Space Station is an armed forces member. Philip Schofield pulled them up on that fact, saying: "No they're not. 230 individuals from 18 different countries have all visited the space station, they were not all military.


"Some of them were teachers. We've met some of them. Are all 230 people liars?"

They also requested a debate with scientists (or actors, depending on your beliefs) such as Brian Cox, deGrasse Tyson, and Bill Nye.

Heather said: "I'm gonna lay down the gauntlet to Brian Cox and I would love to have a few actors involved like Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye, we love actors, so if they could come along as well that would be great, and we'll debate them.

"We'll get our team around the world - some people would say around the globe but that's ridiculous - around the world and we'll debate them anywhere they choose."


You almost have to admire their balls - you'd have to be pretty dumb or pretty brave to take on some of the world's smartest guys in a debate about such utter nonsense.

Brian Cox actually sent a video into the show in which he said: "I'm lost for words. It's probably the most nonsensical suggestions that a thinking human being can possibly make. It is drivel."

Even Schofield gave his own opinion on their views, calling them 'bonkers'.

If Big Phil thinks they're wrong, that's good enough for me.
