Man to launch rocket to prove Earth is flat


A strange man will launch himself in a homemade rocket to ‘prove that the Earth is flat’ this weekend.

American Mike Hughes, who has spent £15,000 on his steam-powered rocket, has said that he doesn’t ‘believe in science’ but knows things about ‘aerodynamics and fluid dynamics…but that’s not science, that’s just a formula’. Indeed, but formulas that were discovered, proven and utilised as a result of the scientific method. Would someone patient tell him what science actually is, please?

Anyhow, after he’s blasted off to a height of 550 metres on his daft errand, proving once and for all that the Earth is not a sphere as our reptilian overlords insist but a flat disk, Hughes plans to return to the ground and announce his plans to run for the Californian governorship.

Aha! It makes more sense now: it’s a publicity stunt. Here’s a video:

And if his theory is proved correct, what implications would a flat Earth have for local government ICT services, Brexit and the sum total of human knowledge, experience and history thus far? Please let us know in the comments section.
