The Flat Earth Society (or the International Flat Earth Research Society) is an organisation saying that the Earth is flat (most of us think it's round; a sphere). It was started by Samuel Shenton in 1956. Charles K. Johnson was the leader and made his home the organization's base. The Flat Earth Society is thought to have disbanded (stopped existing) after Johnson’s death in 2001, but some websites still use the organisation's name.

Many people say that NASA proved that the Earth is not flat by taking pictures of the planet from space. The Society says they are fake, and that NASA is a part of a conspiracy.
