Flat Earther plans on launching himself into the “atmosflat” in homemade rocket to prove Earth is flat.

It’s a shame the guy has to build his space program around spare parts from a washing machine. You’d think someone with a lot of money would invest in this. It’s tough because, generally, people with the kind of money this project requires don’t tend to be abject retards.

Such a shame.

Why would you need to fly into space to find the edge of the Earth? Wouldn’t it be much easier to take a car or a boat?

Hughes’s ultimate goal is a subsequent launch that puts him miles above Earth, where the 61-year-old limousine driver hopes to photograph proof of the disc we all live on.

“It’ll shut the door on this ball earth,” Hughes said in a fundraising interview with a flat-Earth group for Saturday’s flight.

Theories discussed during the interview included NASA being controlled by round-Earth Freemasons and Elon Musk making fake rockets from blimps.

Hughes promised the flat-Earth community that he would expose the conspiracy with his steam-powered rocket, which will launch from a heavily modified mobile home – though he acknowledged that he still had much to learn about rocket science.

“This whole tech thing,” he said in the June interview. “I’m really behind the eight ball.”

That said, Hughes isn’t a totally unproven engineer. He set a Guinness World Record in 2002 for a limousine jump, according to Ars Technica, and has been building rockets for years, albeit with mixed results.

  1. He can’t believe what he is spouting. I have to attribute this to a guy who just wants to see his name in the paper. I that regards he is more honest than Michael Mann.

  2. Maybe he figures if Al Gore can make a fortune off the global warming scam, those same idiots will throw money at him. Maybe he can offer to sell flat earth credits.

  3. I’d prefer to hear Porky Pig stutter, that’s all folks. I have a flat earth friend, he also doen’t believe man didn’t fly to the moon. He also believes Madonna is Queen of the World. I pity him. H’es 70 years old.

  4. Quick! Call Spaceport Camden! They got the state of Georgia to pass a bill protecting space tourists from negligence so this guy is right up their alley for their future spaceport. And Vector Space launched an amateur rocket there in August that made it a mile high but was unmanned so this guy would fulfill their promotional promises to host space tourism.

  5. I have talked with a flat-earther and according to this secret knowledge, the governments of the world will shoot down anyone venturing too close to the edge because the reality of a flat earth has to remain secret.

  6. “atmosflat”

    No, it’s flatmosphere.

    If the Earth were really flat our military strategies would be completely different than the way they are mow.

    If we put all the population on the Eastern hemisphere the Earth would flip over. Like Guam.

  7. Well, it all depends on where you’re observing from and how fast the Earth is moving. At relativistic speeds, Hendrik Lorentz tells us that the apparent thickness of the Earth is equal to its rest thickness transformed by the factor ɣ = 1 / sqrt(1 – (v**2/c**2)). Obviously, as speed approaches c (the speed of light), the apparent thickness approaches zero.

    In other words, for someone going crazy fast enough¹, the Earth is indeed flat.

    1. Yes, that’s deliberately ambiguous.

  8. What’s the point trying to convince these people otherwise.
    Rather, support their cause and tell them they have to be right. The only way to know for sure it to see it yourself, in a homemade $20k steam powered rocket!!

    Let the signups begin!

  9. Okay so He’s behind the 8 ball (8 disk he meant) with this Technology thing, He’ll have plenty of time orbiting around the Disk to fix any flaws !!!

  10. Radioationman – Estes is the shitnizxle. When we were kids we played Army but we upped our game a bit by shooting estes-powered rockets at each other. Good times, good times…
