Flat Earther "Mad" Mike Hughes launched himself 1900ft into the air in a self-built steam powered rocket. Mr Hughes built his rocket in his garage and converted his mobile home into a launch ramp. The launch site was 200 miles east of Los Angeles.
Mr Hughes is quoted as saying "This thing wants to kill you ten different ways", but he seems to have survived his flight relatively unscathed.
Full flight here in link below. Fast forward till 22mins. The actual launch is about 26min. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0WmenDhtaY
Well hats of to that man. How though can somebody with enough know how to build and use a rocket like that, without killing himself, believe that the world is shaped like a frisbee? Do Flat Earthers have a whole different theory for how gravity works?
His ambition is to build a rocket that will take him to 68 miles, he also want to run for Governor of California. I don't fancy his chances of increasing his altitude by 190 times ! With politics anything goes.
