The Infinite Plane Society is a Flat Earth Society offshoot. It is a flat earth group which does not subscribe to a belief in “ice walls” or “domes” which constrain the flat earth model to the known continents. Instead, they assert the flat earth is an endless flat plane.
They sponsored a number of publicity stunts intended at taking flat earth “out of the Youtube echo-chambers”, including a “Research Flat Earth” billboard campaign and a flat earth sponsored steam-powered rocket jump. by world-famous daredevil and flat earth believer “Mad” Mike Hughes. “In 2017, he called in to the Infinite Plane Society, a live-stream YouTube channel that discusses Earth’s flatness and other matters, to announce his beliefs and ambitions and ask for the community’s endorsement.”
The billboard campaign Infinite Plane Society sponsored is what caught “Mad” Mike Hughes’ attention. The message “Research Flat Earth”, was painted on the side of the daredevil’s rocket, leading to international news coverage
The Infinite Plane Society was represented at the International Flat Earth Conference 2018 in Denver, Colorado by it’s spokesman Tim Ozman, who also appears in the Netflix documentary Behind The Curve, in which he states the error in assuming the existence of a dome on a flat earth model.
