Mike Hughes back in the fall was planning on going closer to the Sun on a rocket with the inscription “Investigation of a flat Earth”. But then the local American authorities banned the launch of its homemade rockets on public lands. But Mike found out and on February 3 plans to climb into the sky and look at the Ground from a height of about 550 meters.
Of course, from this height the curvature of the surface of the Earth not to consider. However, Mike is a little worried. “I don’t believe in science. I know about aerodynamics and fluid dynamics and how things move through the air, some of the dimensions of rocket nozzles and propulsion. But it is not a science, but a simple formula”, — told about their knowledge of rocket scientists to the press last year.
Now Mike Hughes will take off from the land of private property, but vertically, not at an angle, as previously planned. So, Mike is going to avoid breaking, landing on public land. Sponsoring the flight of the “society of blacksilence”. The rocket was quite expensive — about $20 000.
