    Damn, once you have conquered the fear that must feel like being a god. Until you have to waddle over the finish line.

    How high do you have to be to see the curvature of the earth?

    @Sutra46 You can be on land and your eye height is enough. You just have to have a large enough of a line of sight(talking miles like a salt flat(or the landing strip that the space shuttle use to land on etc) and you can see the curvature of Earth.

    @zazuch, seems unlikely, the flat earth convition held for millennia had to be sorted with astronomical calculations.
    You sure it`s not the cameras taking pics with a very wide angle lens maybe?
    Elevation seems necessary to see the earth horizon as is.
