This Man Will Launch Himself In A Homemade Rocket To Prove That Earth Is Flat
Our world has absolutely no dearth of weird stories or weird people. Every sunrise rises a new weirdo. For instance, this man who is all set to fly in a homemade rocket just to prove that our earth is flat.
Yes, you read that right. Mike Hughes from California says that Earth is flat and is set to prove his claim by launching himself 1,800 feet high on Saturday in a rocket he built at home. He says that his 500-mph mile long flight through the Mojave desert will mark the first phase of his ambitious flat-Earth space program.
Over Ambitious Flight
“It’ll shut the door on this ball earth,” Mike said in an interview. To clear your confusion, Hughes does have some experience with building rockets. He first built a rocket in 2014 and even managed to fly a quarter-mile over Winkelman, Ariz. However, the injuries he suffered put him in a walker for 2 weeks.
The man is yet struggling to raise funds for his over ambitious flight. He only managed to raise $310 of his $150,000 goal. “We want to do this and basically thumb our noses at all these billionaires trying to do this,” Hughes said
“They have not put a man in space yet. There are 20 different space agencies here in America, and I’m the last person that’s put a man in a rocket and launched it,” he further said.
Once he terribly failed in that campaign, he called into the flat_earth community saying he became a convert recently. “We were kind of looking for new sponsors for this. And I’m a believer in the flat Earth,” Hughes said. “I researched it for several months.”
Finally he raised $20,000 by November and his rocket had “RESEARCH FLAT EARTH” printed on the side. He's getting a decent response now. It'll be interesting to see how high his flight flies.
