Despite all the evidence in the world proving that the Earth is round, some people refuse to abandon their stubborn beliefs that Earth is flat — and this flat earther guy really takes the cake.
Mike Hughes is convinced that people are wrong about the planet’s round shape. He decided to prove his point in an extreme and dangerous experiment.
The 61-year-old limo driver had initially planned to launch himself into space in a homemade scrap-metal rocket last November 25, 2017, in Amboy, California.
Unfortunately for him, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) learned of his plan and stopped it.
Hughes has spent $20,000 building his own steam-powered rocket with spare parts he had in his garage. He even bought a motor home on Craigslist to use as a ramp.
He’s been planning the launch for the 3 years, and he is claiming to have already obtained the BLM’s approval which apparently was fake news.
In fact, the agency says that they had no plan concerning Hughes’ arrange till they chanced on news articles particularization.
The launch which was set as a 500-mile-long flight through the Mojave Desert. They told him he did not have their permission to do it on public land and unsurprisingly, the FAA didn’t approve it either.
Despite the reversal, Hughes still plans on launching his rocket and claims to possess secured personal land to do so.
In the meantime, you can be updated on what he’s doing and planning by checking out his aptly-named YouTube channel, Mad Mike Hughes.
