The Atlanta rapper has started a GoFundMe page called “Show BoB the Curve” to raise $200,000 to launch multiple satellites into space. According to the page, he will keep people updated with “step-by-step documentation of the process.”
At press time, the crowdfunding page had raised $225 from 18 people over a three-day period.
In January 2016, B.o.B. posted a series of tweets to share his arguments that the Earth is flat. His comments drew the attention of scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson, who teasingly tweeted, “being five centuries regressed in your reasoning doesn’t mean we all can’t still like your music.”
