A 61-year-old Californian man aims to float himself at 1,800 feet high, seeking to evince that the conspiracy of astronauts has fabricated the earth’s shape, on coming Saturday in him homemade rocket he manufactured using scrap metal.
Mike Hughes said while talking with the Associated Press that his journey will set the first chapter of his aspiring flat-Earth space project, surmising 500 mph miles long journey through Mojave Desert doesn’t kill him. Hughes ultimately aims of a subsequent launch, which puts him at miles above the earth, where this DIY limousine driver wishes to photograph the evidence of the disc that we all beings live on.
The first test his homemade rocket is its launching date too, i.e. on this Saturday, when he will be fastening into his DIY contraption and strives to rush over the Amboy’s ghost town in California.
Hughes said in a statement that, “If you’re not scared to death, you’re an idiot. It’s scary as hell, but none of us are getting out of this world alive. I like to do extraordinary things that no one else can do, and no one in the history of mankind has designed, built and launched himself in his own rocket. I’m a walking reality show.
He added, “I don’t believe in science. I know about aerodynamics and fluid dynamics and how things move through the air, about the certain size of rocket nozzles, and thrust. But that’s not science, that’s just a formula. There’s no difference between science and science fiction.”
