The earth is actually cube shaped, however it was discovered in March 1845 that spheres are cheaper to produce. Ever since then the earth has been incorrectly displayed as a "globe".

 

Since the space race, great efforts have been put in to modifying photos of the earth to maintain its roundness. This was due largely to the rich and powerfull "globe" industry of the USA.

 

Some organisations are trying to out the truth and break the monopoly of the "globe", however the arguments are often mocked.

Talking of The Moon. The plot for Apollo 13 was actually taken from a true story that took place in Yorkshire in 1976.

 

Arthur Braithwait was making his weekly trip from Leeds to Manchester on a Thursday morning when his fuel tank sprung a leak and his front left tire exploded. With no money in his wallet or a spare tyre he knew the only way to survive was to turn back. Unfortunately the blown tire meant he could not make a quick U-Turn so instead he had to drive around the outskirts of Manchester in order to make the return journey. With fuel rapidly escaping it was touch and go as to whether he would make it but the gods were with him and he safely returned home. The story was discovered on page 32 of the Leeds and Bradford Gazette.
