Big Government Forbids Flat Earth Rocket Man's Insane Flight

"Mad" Mike Hughes is a limo driver turned daredevil who wants to build his own rocket and launch himself into space to prove to the entire globe that the world is flat after all. There’s one problem with his plan: Big Government regulations are conspiring to keep him grounded for good. A space rocket is a pretty tough thing to build, so Hughes is starting with a simpler goal: a smaller rocket that’ll send him a mile across the ground and more than a thousand feet into the air. This probably won’t be high enough to prove the Earth is flat, but hey, we all have to start somewhere. Because of the Bureau of Land Management, however, Hughes might not be able to launch at all.

'Mad' Mike Hughes cancels rocket launch to prove Earth is flat

"It's been very disappointing," he said. In this Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2017 photograph, the homemade, steam-powered rocket built by daredevil/limosuine drive Mad Mike Hughes is shown on the property the man leases in Apple Valley, Cal. Hughes plans to launch the rocket Saturday over the ghost town of Amboy, Ca., at a speed of roughly 500 miles-per-hour. Hughes is a 61-year-old limo driver who has spent the last few years building a steam-powered rocket out of salvage parts in his garage. His project has cost him $20,000, which includes Rust-Oleum paint to fancy it up and a motor home he bought on Craigslist that he converted into a ramp. ...
