Man who hopes to prove the Earth is flat in his homemade rocket postpones plans
By Janissa Delzo
In an effort to prove the Earth is flat, 61-year-old "Mad" Mike Hughes plans to launch himself thousands of feet in the air in a homemade rocket. But his launch-which was originally set for Saturday-has been postponed, The Washington Post reported Friday afternoon.
Hughes was originally planning to conduct his experiment over Amboy, a ghost town situated along Route 66 in California, that has a population of 4. However, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) reportedly informed him that he cannot launch his scrap metal rocket on public land.
