One Man's Mission To Prove The Earth Is FLAT.. With a Steam-Powered Rocket

One Man's Mission To Prove The Earth Is FLAT.. With a Steam-Powered Rocketby

Despite satellite evidence and extensive research having been carried out into the nature of the planet we live on, the world is – for most people – undisputedly round. However, there are still people out there who believe that the Earth is flat – a theory that falls in line most commonly with claims regarding the Illuminati and who’s ‘really’ running society – and while many of these theories fall on deaf ears thanks to evidence claiming otherwise, it seems that there are more than a few people still keen on gathering their own proof by whatever means possible. Rapper B.o.B, for example, has mounted a campaign to raise money for the ‘flat Earth’ cause – and according to some of the weirdest news to emerge this week, he’s not the only one going to extremes to prove what many assume is unprovable.

‘Mad’ Mike Hughes is a man on a mission – one that involves his own home-made steam-powered rocket – which he’s reportedly built in his own garage. Hughes, a limousine driver, claims that he will be able to launch himself into the stratosphere to disprove everything science has been saying about our planet over the past few years. “I don’t believe in science,” says Hughes – this much, admittedly, is obvious. In interview with The Associated Press, the anti-science enthusiast reportedly spent $20,000 putting his machine together – and, following a weekend launch, he hopes it will allow him to take to a future flight to take photos of a ‘flat disc’ Earth.

“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,” advises Hughes in interview. “There’s no difference between science and science fiction.”

Hughes has an avid following on Facebook, though many will be treating his scheme with scepticism – regardless, he has reportedly made sure that his pets are catered for in case he incurs any problems mid-flight. $20,000 on a home made rocket set to disprove the Earth being round – is it money well spent? For many people online who still continue to claim that science is covering things up, it may be a wise investment – but for the majority of media outlets out there, this is a story that is just bonkers enough to capture the weekend’s headlines.
