A man from California is determined to prove everybody Earth is flat by launching himself in a home-made rocket over the Mojave Desert this Saturday. He claims he doesn’t believe in science, and this will be one of the most important steps in revealing the truth that has been kept away from the people.
The man doesn’t think science is real
“Mad” Mike Hughes, 61, has built a rocket powered by steam which is supposed to fly for a mile over the Mojave Desert. He used recycled metals to build the body of the rocket, and turned an old mobile home into its launching pad. This doesn’t sound like something safe, but he claims science is not actually a real thing.
He has some knowledge about the principles of aerodynamics and how a rocket should function, but he says these are only calculations, and not real science. In fact, in his opinion, it’s hard to tell science apart from science fiction.
“I know about aerodynamics and fluid dynamics (…) but that’s not science, that’s just a formula. There’s no difference between science and science fiction.”
He is determined to reveal the truth about the shape of Earth
Therefore, he will use basic materials to challenge the old convictions backed up by scientific evidence, and prove Earth is flat. This might not be science, but the entire experiment is still going to cost him about $20,000.
This rocket is supposed to fly at a height of 1,800 feet into the air, and reach a speed of 500 miles per hour. Once he reaches this point, he will pull his parachute and get out of the rocket. This isn’t the first time when Hughes makes such a launch, but his previous attempts weren’t too happy.
However, nothing is going to stop him from proving Earth is actually flat, and revealing the lies promoted by scientists and astronauts. He calls it the biggest deception of humanity, and says all the evidence supporting it were a means to manipulate the population.
