This past month contained a variety of emotions for Elon Musk and his supporters. It started off with reports of poor working conditions at Tesla, followed by their well received announcements of the Tesla Semi and new Tesla Roadster. Most recently, Elon Musk has been in contact with some Flat Earth conspiracy theorists.
It started with the Flat Earth Society replying to Elon Musk’s Tweet.
Hi Elon, thanks for the question. Unlike the Earth, Mars has been observed to be round.
We hope you have a fantastic day!

When pressed for a comment, Elon Musk revealed that he’s been talking to the Flat Earth Society and is planning on working with them. He issued the following statement.
“I find the lack of education in parts of America troubling. SpaceX is working on a mission with the Flat Earth Society to end the debate regarding the Earth’s shape once and for all.”
Unfortunately Elon did not release any specifics regarding the mission, only that it will put the debate to rest. Elon is known for making outrageous plans and somehow following through on them, so it will definitely be interesting to see how this plays out.
