A number of the Flat Earthers took to the comment section questioning the authenticity of the photo, which shows that the Earth is round.

According to NASA, the Flat Earth conspiracy is not new and has been gaining quite a lot of attention in recent years. The space agency said that humans have known that the Earth is round for more than 2,000 years.

"Today, scientists use geodesy, which is the science of measuring Earth's shape, gravity and rotation. Geodesy provides accurate measurements that show Earth is round. With GPS and other satellites, scientists can measure Earth's size and shape to within a centimetre," NASA said.

Bob Behnken along with Doug Hurley became the first crew to fly in SpaceX's Crew Dragon spacecraft. Both the astronauts launched to the space station during SpaceX's historic Demo-2 mission on 30 May.

Last month astronaut Dough Hurley had shared an incredible photo of Saharan dust plume spreading over the Atlantic Ocean.
