There are many conspiracies surrounding the total solar eclipse that will occur on Monday, August 21. Everyone, including scientists, talk like this is a sure thing, but is it?
Some conspiracy theorists are asking us all to follow the money. And they make a few good points. On August 21, the moon will pass between the Earth and the sun, obscuring the light of our star. The government agency NASA says this will result in ‘one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights.’ But some say that it’s all just a gigantic conspiracy to make money.
The Atlantic says ‘something doesn’t add up.’ The astronomers at NASA claim to have calculated down to the minute exactly when and where this will happen, and for how long, and have put out maps detailing the ‘path of totality.’ They have reportedly known about this eclipse for years, just by virtue of some sort of complex math. But they haven’t released the math to the public so we can check the calculations for ourselves.
