A true space Case

Seeking to prove that a conspiracy of astronauts fabricated the shape of the Earth, a California man intends to launch himself 1,800 feet high on Saturday in a rocket he built from scrap metal.

Assuming the 500-mph, mile-long flight through the Mojave Desert does not kill him, Mike Hughes told the Associated Press, his journey into the atmosflat will mark the first phase of his ambitious flat-Earth space program.

Hughes’s ultimate goal is a subsequent launch that puts him miles above the Earth, where the 61-year-old limousine driver hopes to photograph proof of the disc we all live on.

More power to him. Nuttier things have been done.

I wonder if 1800 feet is a typo. He could just climb a big hill and get that kind of altitude.

I especially like the basketball hoop and the trailer hitch with 1-7/8" ball on the aft end of the "spacecraft".

Some folks can breath under water too.

Shucks, I was hoping it may have been Al Gore..get him off the "global warming" kick and onto the "flat earth" investigation.

This blastronaught's scheme is just about as viable as the "global warming" scheme..
