Daredevil 'Mad' Mike Hughes dies after homemade rocket crashes, reports say

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


BARSTOW, Calif. (KSNV) — The famous daredevil known for trying to launch himself into space on a homemade rocket has died near Barstow, California after a crash landing during a rocket launch Saturday, multiple media outlets report .

The launch, according to Space.com , was a part of the “Homemade Astronauts” series on Science Channel.

The 64-year-old was riding his own steam-powered rocket and hoped to reach 5,000 feet.

In a video posted on Twitter by Justin Chapman shows the launch as well as the crash. “Very likely did not survive,” Chapman said in the post’s caption.

The San Bernardino Sheriff’s Office said that deputies responded just before 2:00 p.m. Saturday to a private property in a rural area of Barstow.

A man was pronounced deceased after the rocket crashed in the open desert during a rocket launch event. There were medical aid personnel for the launch and they were immediately on scene.

The department’s aviation and specialized investigators are conducting an investigation, adding that the coroner has not made a positive ID.

Hughes is not only famous for his daredevil ways but also his belief that the earth is flat, which is among the reasons he so tirelessly tried to reach space and see for his own eyes.

Hughes’ was the star of the documentary “Rocketman: Mad Mike’s Mission to Prove the Flat-Earth.”

Don't know if anyone else remembers this guy but like the story says he was building his own rocket partially in an effort to prove the earth was flat.

Lol possibly NASA got scared and shut his research down (permanently).  Any the mystery continues.

He was the most famous of the flat earthers.  I wish he had made it so he could see for himself that the earth is not flat.  There is no mystery.  Earth is a planet and by definition not flat.

Funny thing is that he didn't have to go into space to see that, he simply had to watch a ship come over the horizon into port

Flat Earthers are a strange breed.   Nothing you say or demonstrate makes a difference to them.   There is a YouTube video that has the head USA flat Earther witnessing a scientific demonstration.   The scientists put on a boat a vertical meter (about 6 feet tall).   The boat then went out to sea and on the beach they had the equivalent of surveyor equipment.   They watched as the meter stick slowly moved downward in the view of the equipment.     

The flat Earthers claimed this was merely a heat mirage.

No reasoning with such blind confirmation bias.   It is a religious thing with them.

I would be willing to go with some flat earthers in a ship and head out to sea.  I would leave a certified check to be given to a recipient of their choice if the boat falls off the edge of the world, which it won't.  They instead would get a reality check and I would get a nice little trip out of it.

I saw a post on one flat Earther's Facebook page that claimed that multiple views of the Earth, taken from different points in orbit or at different times, not all looking the same, meant that they were faked.  They should all look alike, she thought.  Because the eastern hemisphere should look exactly like the western hemisphere, and cloud cover is stationary.

How do they explain away the time zones and the fact the sun comes up in the east and sets in the west in every time zone and the fact it's always day somewhere. Instead of building rockets they should place 24 of their most prominent flat earthers at 15 degree intervals around the world and video conference the sun's progress just to make sure it doesn't go out and quickly run back to the other end of the flat earth. The thing with flat earthers is I've always suspected that they were just screwing with us and laughing about it at their flat earther keg parties.

I figure it is confirmation bias (and serious stupidity) that keeps these folks going.   These people claim that NASA is engaging in a worldwide conspiracy with fake photos and claims.   The level of conspiracy theory one must accept to believe this nonsense is staggering.   Even a basic IQ should be sufficient to raise a red flag that something is wrong in the logic.

I was wondering if he'd been submitted for a Darwin Award yet, so I went poking around the interwebs and found something else instead...

On Saturday, a public relations representative disputed Hughes' flat Earth beliefs, telling BuzzFeed News that the argument had helped Hughes raise money, but that he didn't actually believe it. "We used flat Earth as a PR stunt. Period," Darren Shuster told BuzzFeed News. "He was a true daredevil decades before the latest round of rocket missions. Flat Earth allowed us to get so much publicity that we kept going! I know he didn’t believe in flat Earth and it was a schtick."

So it was a scam for money and publicity. Surprise, surprise.

Okay, what's worse... being stupid or gullible enough to believe in a flat Earth, or being a scumbag who knowingly dupes people who are stupid or gullible enough to believe in a flat Earth out of their money?

Ken Ham keeps popping into my head for some reason.

It seems strange that anyone would think it necessary to leave the ground to see if the earth is flat. Just set your watch to EST, see when the sun rises and sets, then drive to LA... without adjusting watch and see when the sun rises and sets. Immediately reverse the process. Compare the times... A flat earth would have only one time zone.

Its a space-time continuum ..... unless of course when the Moon is in the seventh house and Jupiter aligns with Mars ..... then all bets are off because peace will guide the planets and love will steer the stars ..... ooops, wrong dimension

Keep your day job, Sparty. I don't think you've got a career as a recording star.

I'm more Marvel Comics. But I am familiar with the basics of DC as well.

Same here, about the only DC comic I read was Batman.

Nope I'm not sure why exactly but to me he was just too powerful.  Physically no one could ever defeat him and mentally/emotionally he just had no foibles, no fear, no angst, no mistakes, no regrets   Mind you all my opinions on Supes were formed 40 or more years ago so things may have changed.  Instead give me Phoenix, ShadowCat, Rogue, Psylocke, Storm etc something that's at least a little relatable.  

Oh and he also wasn't a busty woman dressed in a virtually painted on costume.

Isn't that all you really need? Batman is awesome. But then, Batman is like being a mortal Superman: he can basically do anything.

Nope I'm not sure why exactly but to me he was just too powerful.  

Well, he did have what seemed like every super power out there: Super strength, super speed, invulnerability, heat vision, cold breath, X-Ray vision, super hearing. He is completely overpowered. Where most superheroes have 1 or 2 superpowers, Supes had many.

Physically no one could ever defeat him

Except Doomsday. But like many comic book "deaths," Superman's demise at the hands of Doomsday would only be temporary. Batman has beaten him too. But rather than physically defeating Supes, Bats outwitted him.

Instead give me Phoenix, ShadowCat, Rogue, Psylocke, Storm etc something that's at least a little relatable.  

Don't forget Wolverine. jrSmiley_7_smiley_image.png

That's why we have Wonder Woman. Or Batgirl. Or Black Canary, ect.. jrSmiley_16_smiley_image.gif

Ya know I've seen them all in comics (many, many moons ago) and the drawings of the time simply never impressed as much as Marvels did.  Meh it's all personal taste I guess.

Let's just say modern depictions are much more impressive. And detailed ;)

In his quest to prove the earth is flat, he proved the law of gravity is real.

From March 25,2018

Still, mission accomplished for a guy more daredevil than engineer, who drew more comparisons to the cartoon character Wile E. Coyote from his critics than he did to iconic stunt man Evel Knievel.

"Mad" Mike Hughes, the rocket man who believes the Earth is flat, propelled himself about 1,875 feet into the air Saturday before a hard landing in the Mojave Desert. He told The Associated Press that outside of an aching back he's fine after the launch near Amboy, California.

"Mad" Mike Hughes, the rocket man who believes the Earth is flat, propelled himself about 1,875 feet into the air Saturday before a hard landing in the Mojave Desert. He told The Associated Press that outside of an aching back he's fine after the launch near Amboy, California.

"I told Mike we could try to keep charging it up and get it hotter," said Waldo Stakes, who's been helping Hughes with his endeavor. "He said, 'No.'"

Sometime after 3 p.m. PDT, and without a countdown, Hughes' rocket soared into the sky.

Hughes reached a speed that Stakes estimated to be around 350 mph before pulling his parachute. Hughes was dropping too fast, though, and he had to deploy a second one. He landed with a thud and the rocket's nose broke in two places like it was designed to do.

His latest attempt defied common safety precautions.  Because of the wind, they had trouble maintaining the steam temperature.  Two certain signals to postpone.

Upon the launch, one parachute inexplicably deployed and was almost instantly ripped free of the rocket which climbed to

5000 feet, tipped over and headed nose first into the ground while onlookers waited for Hughes to deploy the 3 remaining parachutes.  That never happened.
