“Mad Mike” Hughes has been gaining a lot of attention in the media lately for his homemade rocket. But it is not just his homemade rocket, but the fact that he planned to launch himself into the sky to prove that the Earth is flat. He recently conducted his rocket launch over the desert and many people are wondering how it went.
After hitting a few snags over safety concerns but eventually gained approval from the authorities. So without further delay, Mad Mike got in his rocket and prepared to silence the round earth lie once and for all. However, there was a bit of a problem, his homemade rocket didn’t even ignite.
“I’m sorry to disappoint everyone; I did the best I can do. I manned up. I got in it.”

Sadly it seems as though Mad Mike will never have the chance to disprove the colossal lie propagated the evil Round Earth Society. Obviously, Mike is going through a rough patch and feeling bad about having to return to his day job as a limo driver rather than being known as a world champion of the Flat Earth. It is a bummer but I guess he finally discovered the gravity of the situation.
