Mike Hughes: Daredevil who wanted to prove Earth is flat dies after crashing homemade rocket

A daredevil pilot who believed the Earth was flat has been killed after his homemade rocket crashed shortly after take-off in California.

“Mad” Mike Hughes, who hoped to prove the Earth was flat by going into space, died on Saturday near Barstow, California, after attempting to launch his steam-powered rocket.

Hughes, with the help of his assistants, built the rocket in his backyard, at a cost of around $18,000 (16,000€ / £14,000).

The rocket uses steam ejected through a nozzle for propulsion.
