While innocently waiting in line at a Starbucks coffee shop, a NASA scientist was confronted by the founder of the Official Flat Earth and Globe Discussion Facebook page, Nathan Thompson. The bizarre video, in which the prominent flat-earther relentlessly pesters the NASA employee to explain how someone can drown in space, has gone viral.
At first, Thompson and the scientists have a polite discussion on the employee’s views on spaceflight. Thompson is even given NASA stickers. Before pressing the NASA employee for answers about how Italian ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano’s helmet filled with water during a spacewalk, he tells his viewers:
“I’m here with a real NASA employee. A legit NASA employee.”
“And I asked him. I said, uh, astronauts have almost died in space. Uh, they get water in their suit and they almost drowned and he said it was because of saliva. This guy right here, hang on, I’m gonna wait for him to get to the front of the line, and then I’m gonna ask him some more questions,” he adds.
While the scientist patiently waits for his coffee, Thompson tries to capture his attention. When the NASA employee doesn’t respond, the YouTuber assumes it’s because the organization is hiding something and the scientist doesn’t want to reveal secrets.
“Look, he was all nice. He was all nice. He gave me NASA cartoon frigging emblems,” Nathan tells the camera, reaching for the word “stickers.” “And now he won’t talk to me at all.”
Obviously not satiated, Thompson then cuts in line to confront the scientist. When the man calmly declines, Thompson becomes more aggressive, asking: “Come on, you won’t chat with me? You hate Americans? Is that it?”
To this, the NASA scientist calmly replies: “Excuse me? How the hell did you get that? Don’t ever accuse me of that again. I don’t have to chat with you. Step over there, ok? I’m done talking to you.”
Eventually, a Starbucks employee stepped in and asked Thompson to leave.
“You’re not the boss of me, bro. Ok, I’ll leave because you asked me to, that’s fine, but NASA’s a fraud, bro. They lie about everything.”
The YouTuber then leaves calmly and complain to the camera outside. He says,
”Well I just got kicked out of Starbucks for asking a NASA employee questions, cuz he’s LYING. He’s a blatant LIAR. What a JOKE that was! Now we’re outside. Beautiful America. Man that was ridiculous. I GOT NASA FRIGGING STICKERS FROM THE NASA EMPLOYEE, GUYS! And then I start asking him questions and he told me to go outside of Starbucks; I’m frigging shaking. Oh. My. Lord.”
So far, the video has been viewed over 80,000 times.
