A California man who said he wanted to fly to the edge of outer space to see if the world is round has died after his home-built rocket blasted off into the desert sky and plunged back to earth.

“Mad” Mike Hughes was killed on Saturday afternoon after his rocket crashed on private property near Barstow, California. - Marketwatch

2. In fairness to Mad Mike...

...I think he was more likely scamming the Flat-Earthers to get money to build his rocket.

4. Idiot. There are tons of other ways to prove that the earth is round. He could have easily...

chosen one of these alternative methods to figure that the earth is round. IMHO, if someone is dumb enough to believe this (the earth is flat), then they deserve the crap that they do to themselves, unfortunately, and as long as they don't hurt others in their feeble attempts.

5. Yeah but he could build almost functioning steam rockets. How many people can do that?
