    California Flat Earther to launch his own rocket

    My headline pretty much says it all. This story smells like death:

    Consider for a moment that there is no meme about brown-haired, brown-eyed step children.

    He looks perfect for Governor of California.

      Hughes is a 61-year-old limo driver who’s spent the last few years building a steam-powered rocket out of salvage parts in his garage. His project has cost him a total of $20,000, which includes Rust-Oleum paint to fancy it up and a motor home he bought on Craig’s List that he converted into a ramp.
      ...
      “I don’t believe in science,” said Hughes, whose main sponsor for the rocket is Research Flat Earth. “I know about aerodynamics and fluid dynamics and how things move through the area, 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.”
      Holy shit ... I don't even ... I can't even ...

        I've heard about this. A guy whose education is insufficient to make the plainly obvious observations that prove the spheroid shape of the Earth is going to light of a rocket intended for orbit. This should work well.

          Says he's going to live-stream on his utubez, so SAVE THE DATE! Saturday is just around the corner, this should be spectacular.

            He's no rocket-scientist. No seriously he said so himself.

              He could be a strong candidate for one of this years Darwin Awards....

                He's a rocket magician then.

                  Does he have kids? That's a disqualification.

                    seems a few years ago he had an issue with the parachute deployment and shredding.

                      I dunno it seems alot easier to prove just by sailing around the world.

                        According to Flat Earthers you aren't going "around" a globe but navigating on a flat plane around the continents.

                          Instead of rockets why not Paraglide to 15,000 ft? You can see the curvature from there pretty decently.

                            So that's how they explain that.
                            "Through the centuries, the Jews have endured terrible persecution, and you know that. We've all read it, studied it. They've gone through a lot. And those seeking their destruction, we will seek their destruction." -President Donald Trump, spewing his Nazi, racist, anti-Semitism.

                              Earth is flat, relatively speaking. Difference between the highest peak and lowest point of the oceans is less than 0.05% of the circumference. IIRC, that's a couple hundred times "flatter" than the surface of an orange. So, yeah, if you shrunk Earth to the size of an orange, it would feel to you like holding a big smooth glass ball.

                              Unfortunately, you need actual science to determine that.

                              This guy is a hero, of sorts - he will be redefining flat, come Saturday afternoon.
