Quote:Self-taught rocket scientist “Mad” Mike Hughes plans to launch himself into the sky.
The 61-year-old spent the last few years building a steam-powered rocket out of salvage parts in his garage.
His first test of the rocket will also be the launch date — Saturday , when he straps into his homemade contraption and attempts to hurtle over the ghost town of Amboy, California. He will travel about a mile at a speed of roughly 500 mph.
“If you’re not scared to death, you’re an idiot,” Hughes said . “It’s scary as hell, but none of us are getting out of this world alive.
Sure, none of us are getting out of this world alive, but he's a flat earther, so nobody on the forums will miss him. Did anyone else notice the nanolubecorp.com on the rocket fin?
