NEWS: Flat Earth Enthusiast Plans to Launch Himself in Homemade Rocket Again

Flat Earth enthusiast 'Mad' Mike Hughes hopes to once again take to the skies inside of a homemade rocket at a launch scheduled for this weekend. The 'self-taught rocket scientist' made worldwide headlines last year when, after a series of failed attempts, he successfully soared nearly 2,000 feet into the air via a steam-powered craft that he built himself in an attempt to prove that the planet is flat. Having come away from the stunt largely unscathed, Hughes reportedly plans to up the proverbial ante with another launch this month.
