"(Re)Inventing the Flat Earth"
Dr. Peter Sobol, Historian of Science
With evidence all around us that the earth is round, why do some people continue to insist that the earth is flat? Dr. Sobol will examine the history of our understanding of the earth's shape, and look at what motivates the few persistent believers in a flat earth.
