Cali man plans to launch himself in a home-made rocket to prove Earth is flat  

Mike Hughes, a 61-year-old limo driver in California, has built himself a steam-powered rocket out of scrap metal parts in his garage in which he hopes to launch himself miles up into the sky.

Hughes says he’s doing it to prove that astronauts lied about the shape of the Earth. He expects to take pictures showing that the Earth is actually a flat disc.

Good luck with that.
