Actually, no. No one has circumvented the earth north to south.



One guy like flew to the 'south pole', then turned around and flew back the way he came, and they counted that. lol, they mock you. Some British aristocrat/royal type iirc.

Why should I believe you, when you clearly don't think enough of your 'theory' to go get a piece of edge to show us?

I'm giving this round to Jerome as no one can come up with evidence for a flight over the South Pole.

Is there some reason why planes don't fly over it, that must be the quickest route for some flights surely? I know it's cold but it's bloody freezing at plane altitude anyway so i'm not having that excuse.

This is an interesting question, and there are three reasons why no commercial flight overflies Antarctica:

Geography

Due to the arrangement of the three populated southern continents, flying over Antarctica wouldn't actually be shorter for most routes. South America, Africa, and Australia form a rough triangle at the "bottom of the world" and the shortest leg between their largest airports misses most of Antarctica.

Still, there are a few routes where it would make sense. And the shortest route isn't always best, since one must also consider prevailing winds. I read that it would be favorable to fly Sydney to Buenos Aires (currently the most-southern flight) at 80 degrees south (over Antarctica) rather than 72 degrees (the great circle) due to winds.

ETOPS

ETOPS rules cover where twin-engine jets can fly. Antarctica is considered off-limits for twin-engine jets even though it's technically "land". This isn't a real roadblock since there are a good number of 4-engine jets that don't need to abide by ETOPS, but it limits the type of plane that theoretically could fly there and thus rules out all but the largest jets. So any flight over Antarctica would have to connect large-enough cities to fill a large four-engine jet. Bringing us back to the answer about geography...

Special Rules

The real reason no commercial flight over-flies Antarctica is that there are special aviation rules for flights that do. These rules were designed for sightseeing flights but apply to commercial flights as well. Planes flying below 72 degrees latitude need special survival equipment on board, and no commercial carrier would want to stock planes with all this stuff just to save a bit of fuel. It would limit the number of seats available (see ETOPS above) and would require special equipment and training. This could seriously screw up the airline's schedules.

So that's why no commercial flight over-flies Antarctica!

Not exactly the greatest answer in the world but there you go

An interesting proof of the global spherical proportions of the earth is the fact that sailing from Perth to Melbourne is shorter doing a curve around the bottom rather than a straight line.
In fact, all the geometry of the earth distances proves the curvature of the earth so clearly that the Greeks worked out the circumference of the globe by geometry.

But the people who have a bit of their cognitive faculties missing because of their bloated egos can't be convinced by this clear evidence.

Some of the evidence for the spherical globe. (apart from visually seeing it from planes and the space craft) is the measurement and movement of shadows.

If Einstein is right about the warpness of space from the weight of earth, could there be a warble in the space/time curvature that makes changes the length of shadows without the distance and placement of sun, moon etc, changing?

There's a giant hole at the south pole. It's a UFO base and any airplane that passes over is vaporized with a death ray. The vapor gets sucked down into the hole and the aliens get high off it.

Around the world east/west by sail record: 40 days, 23 hours, 30 minutes and 30 seconds.

Around the Antarctic by sail record: 102 days 00 hours 56 minutes 50secs.

Weird how going around the equator is faster...

The records presumably are made under ideal conditions, regardless:

So the common understanding of the shortest distance to circumvent the 'globe' east/west by boat (there is land in the way), is 21,600 nautical miles.

The antarctic coastline is 9,500 nautical miles. Of course a sail boat does not travel every nook and crevice of a coastline. So, maybe 7,000 travel miles.

Thus, one third of the distance takes three times the time.

lol, they are fucking with you.
