The Flat Earth Society has members around the globe. What I wanna know is why isn't there a Flat Mars Society?

    There are/(would be) 2 main reasons:

    1) Mars is a smaller planet, it does not look so flat to someone standing on it
    2) The atmosphere on Mars is much thinner. dust have an easier time settling and restoring the good transparency of the air. You can see as far as the eye can see. And that includes seeing if the horizon have cut off the lower 5 inches of a measuring stick 'over the horizon'. In contrast Earth air is soupy with water vapor and dust and life, On earth seeing something cleary a mile away is a rarity.

    How about Mars is fake Society?  I'm sure that is next.  I mean there is a fake moon landing, why isn't there a fake universe too?

    I had thought it might be because nobody would admit to having been there.

    Put them together and let them shoot each other up.   I'm sure they are 2nd AMENDMENT midquoters as well.

    I suppose that from here, all other planets appear as a circle either in drawings or through a telescope no matter what time or angle, other than when the moon is not full, so no question about those being a sphere, globe, round circular or whatever. Here there are hills and plateaus and perhaps they cannot perceive that gravity would keep people from falling off of the other side? 
    Not really sure, I don't get it.
