Another whackjob set to prove the earth is flat

The number of people who haven't heard about the theory that the earth is flat is decreasing every day, since the controversial topic has been in the news quite a bit lately.

Around two months ago the "rapper" BoB started a GodFundMe campaign to "purchase and launch multiple weather balloons and satellites into space, for experimental exploration." Today, two months later, he has managed to get together $6,862 of his $1.0M goal. One thousand of it is his own money. So far 226 people have donated for his "cause". Initially BoB wanted $200 000 for the flat earth exploration project. This campaign isn't anything new for BoB, he came our with his flat earth conspiracy theories already in the beginning of 2016 and maybe earlier.

Now a 61-year-old limo driver from California has made the headlines by building a rocket at home to prove that astronauts have faked the shape of earth and the earth is actually flat. He intends to launch himself 1,800 feet high on Saturday. His "research" is sponsored by Research Flat Earth group, which, as you might have guessed, believes the earth is flat.

"It's scary as hell, but none of us are getting out of this world alive. I like to do extraordinary things that no one else can do, and no one in the history of mankind has designed, built and launched himself in his own rocket," said the rocketman Mike Hughes.

He said that the it cost around $20 000 to build the project and it was built with scrap metal parts in his garage.

Once high up, he intends to snap a photo of the "flat earth" and prove once and for all, that the earth indeed, is flat.

He's statement that "I don't believe in science," shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, although his other statement "I know about aerodynamics and fluid dynamics and how things move through the air, about the certain size of rocket nozzles, and thrust. But that's not science, that's just a formula. There's no difference between science and science fiction," sort of makes him look like the whackjob he seems to be.

But now, thinking of conspiracy theories, if the spherical earth is a huge conspiracy theory, and the moon landing was faked, how can we even know Mike Hughes even exists, and even if he does, how can we be sure he has a rocket, or, even if he has a rocket, how can we be sure he won't fake the pictures, or, if he doesn't fake the pictures, well...you get the point.
