Earth doesnt seem so flat from up there in space.  Btw, I don't believe in the flat earth theory.

If anyone wonders how that satellite plans to go to geo stationary orbit when being released at 650 km up:

It uses onboard state-of-the art chemical engines that will bring it up to 36,000 km and keep it there for a planned 15 years.

Pretty neat.
