Last year, The Goldwater reported on a flat-earther who built his own <a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/12450-American-Builds-Rocket-To-Prove-Earth-Is-Flat">rocket</a> to get into space with the goal of proving the earth was flat.
The man's name is "Mad" Mike Hughes and he must be mad if he is smart enough to build a rocket but doesn't believe the earth is round.
Hughes planned to launch himself last year from the ghost town of Amboy in California but his launch was shut down after the Bureau of Land Management prohibited him from launching on public land.
Now, "Mad" Mike Hughes is set on launching his rocket again, this time from the private land so the BLM will not shut him down. He wants to get into space for the sole purpose of proving the earth is flat.
Poor Mike, he is in for a rude awakening when he gets up several thousand feet high, he is going to see that the world is in fact round.
Even if you take a commercial flight, you can see the curvature of the earth from 35,000 feet. There are also numerous experiments one can do on their own without going to space that prove the earth is round.
Well, good luck to "Mad" Mike, his launch is scheduled for February 3 and since it will be on private land there should be no legal hiccups at launch.
