I'm guessing this is one of those things where someone found or made up that quote, and then attributed it to the only famous photographer they could think of, for gravitas.

Whether it is made up or not, why would anyone use Steve McCurry as an authority on photography in outer space? Did he try it? Study it? Isn't it like quoting Paris Hilton as an authority on quantum physics?

Agreed.  Surely everyone knows that Britney Spears is far more reliable on such matters.

To refute a flat earther, hand them a global flight time table and ask them to draw a flat map that fits the distances and travel times. At least you're wasting their time and not your own.

Now there's an interesting challenge.
