Flat Earther Plans to Launch Home Made Rocket



A flat-Earth enthusiast who claims not to believe in science plans to launch himself 1,800 feet above California's Mojave Desert in a homemade steam rocket.

The 61-year-old daredevil is a limo driver known to the locals as"Mad" Mike Hughes, built the rocket and its launch ramp himself for about $20,000, according to the AP. If all goes according to plan, the contraption will accelerate to a top speed of 500 mph and travel about 1 mile away from the launch site,to a ghost town called Amboy. where Hughes hopes to make a parachute-aided touchdown.
