On Saturday, “Mad” Mike Hughes a 61-year-old limousine driver plans to launch himself on a mile-long flight over the Mojave Desert in a steam-powered rocket of his own making.

The rocket is built from salvaged metals, his launch pad is repurposed from a used mobile home, and he is quite confident that this flight this will mark the first step toward proving the Earth is, in fact, flat:

“It’s the most interesting story in the world. 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.”1

Currently, the plan is to send himself 1,800 feet high in the air, in the rocket he made for just $20,000, at a speed of 500 mph before finally pulling out his parachutes. (Hughes used parachutes in 2014 in a flight that took him a quarter-mile across Arizona desert. In that instance one of his parachutes didn’t open.)

For Hughes, many notable space explorers, including the “Freemason” NASA astronauts John Glenn and Neil Armstrong, were involved in “the roots of the deception” that the Earth is round. But, Saturday’s launch may help him put this “king of the deceptions” to bed once and for all, “Once this domino falls, this is it.”

(Keep in mind, long before NASA launched astronauts into space and we saw pictures of our spherical planet, we knew it was round. The Bible talks about the earth as a sphere and so did Aristotle, ” …a Greek man with no known connections to NASA or Freemasonry — explained how we know back around 350 B.C.: “Again, our observations of the stars make it evident, not only that the Earth is circular, but also that it is a circle of no great size. For quite a small change of position to south or north causes a manifest alteration of the horizon.”2)

Hughes is a researcher and will continue his research beyond Saturday’s launch, which he says will be streaming online.

This all goes without saying, but here goes, DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME.

Happy Thanksgiving all!
