The “debate” between astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and rapper B.o.B over whether or not Earth is flat just reached a whole new level.

WATCH: Neil deGrasse Tyson schools rapper B.o.B over flat-Earth belief

On his appearance on The Late Night with Larry Wilmore, renowned astrophysicist and science educator Neil deGrasse Tyson took on rapper B.o.B’s belief that Earth is flat by providing some education.

Taking off his jacket, Tyson took the mic and said, “Listen B.o.B. once and for all: the Earth looks flat because, one, you’re not far enough away at your size; two, your size isn’t large enough relative to Earth’s to notice any curvature at all. It’s a fundamental fact of calculus and non-Euclidean geometry.”

Clearly frustrated with the whole ludicrous debate, Tyson ended with, “When you stand on the shoulders of those who came before you, you might just see far enough to realize that the Earth isn’t f@#&ing flat.”

Then he demonstrated gravity — by literally dropping the mic.
