this is what would happen if the earth was flat!
you don't need to go to space, even the ancient Greeks knew the earth was round because of some simple math.
technically we can't know, unless we've been to space ourselves
Earth may not be perfectly spherical in shape but it's the closest shape it resembles
A sphere is an object which from the center measured in any direction should be the same. It's not, measuring from the center to sea level North or South is shorter than measuring from the center to sea level East or West. All due to magnetic fields around the earth.
It isn't a perfectly geometrical sphere, but it is a ball-shape. People have literally seen the Earth from in space, and even flown around it.
It is not flat, if that's what you're trying to say...
The Earth is not a perfect sphere, but it is a sphere.
