Windowless planes will give passengers a panoramic view of the sky

Ever since air travel was invented, people have been fighting over the window seat. Not any more! The Center for Process Innovation, a British technology and research firm, is creating the future of air travel!

The futuristic planes will actually be windowless. Instead, the entire length of the plane will be covered in OLED touch screens. Essentially giving everyone in plane a virtual window seat!

Within 10 to 15 years these planes could hopefully be a reality!

The touch screens with be connected to cameras that are place all over the outside of the plane. This allows the screens to display a realistic view of what is going on around the plane outside.

If you get sick of looking at the sky, you can turn the virtual window into an entertainment system as well.

Not familiar with OLED-touch screen technology? OLED is an abbreviation for organic light-emitting diode. This means that there is a film comprised of organic compounds the is capable of projecting light as a reaction to an electrical current.

It might sound scientific, but this tech is currently being used in televisions, tablets, mobile phones, and computer monitors. By the time these planes are actually manufactured. there will most likely be a more advanced screen on the market.

With the entire walls of the plane filled with screens, passengers could look out at the view surrounding them and never have to worry about getting a good seat again.

They say the projections on the screens will reflect the real world outside, I'm sure this new technology will excite a few conspiracy theorists.

This cool, new concept isn't without its setbacks. Many people have raised concerns that the amount of light caused by all the screens might cause some passengers discomfort.

People want a reality show where flat earthers hunt for the edge of the world

Anyone with a basic understanding of science can comprehend that there is enough evidence in our world that the Earth is spherical in shape.

However, against all forms of reason and logic, It seems like more and more lately people seem to believe that the Earth is in fact flat.

According to Christine Garwood, author of "Flat Earth: The Story of an Infamous Idea," everyone in ancient times believe that the Earth was flat and we only change our minds when Christopher Columbus successfully reached the Americas without falling off the edge of the world.

"With extraordinary few exceptions, no educated person in the history of Western civilization from the third century onwards believed that the Earth was flat," said historian Jeffrey Burton Russell in 1997.

The renowned scientist, Stephen Jay Gould, wrote in 1997 as well:

"There was never a period of 'flat earth obscurity' among scholars. Greek knowledge of sphericity never disappeared and all medieval scholars accepted the roundness of the Earth as an established fact of cosmology."

"The Church says that the Earth is flat, but I know it is round because I saw its shadow on the Moon. And I have more faith in a shadow than in the Church." – Fernando de Magallanes (1480-1521)

As the flat Earth debate rages on, how do we end the disagreement once and for all? One user on Reddit has come up with a brilliant idea!

Make a reality show to "cure" the flat Earth problem! The group of Reddit users brainstormed that flat Earthers should be sent out on an adventure to find the "edge" of the world.

Those who believe in the flat Earth theories are convinced that it is impossible to make it to the "edge" of the world because it is blocked by a massive wall of ice and defended by the world's military powers.

The Reddit commenters suggested that the flat Earthers should be flown to the north and south pole or perhaps fly them to the outer reaches of the atmosphere so they can see for themselves.

However, this sounds like it is turning into an expensive reality show now!
