Do you remember back a few months ago when we shared the story about "Mad" Mike Hughes? He's a flat-earther who holds most of his beliefs in the distrust of the government and science, because you know, they're in on it together.
So naturally he was going to take matters into his own hands and blast himself into space high enough to "prove" to the world that the earth isn't actually round but flat...I know right?
Well, after a few delays due to weather concerns Mad Mike did successfully blasted himself nearly 1,800 feet into the air, and here's the kicker, he didn't blow himself up.
Mad Mike is using steam power to blast himself into the sky using 350psi of pressure. That rig, along with a ramp built out of parts of a mobile home got him going nearly 350mph before deploying his parachute and eventually his second parachute in preparation for a return to earth.
So he's getting closer...ya know to proving us all wrong.
Check out the video below of his launch and recovery...
