Man Out to Prove the World Is Flat Crashes His Homemade Rocket

Over the weekend, 61-year-old daredevil "Mad" Mike Hughes -- who believes that the Earth is flat -- crawled into a homemade rocket and blasted himself 1,875 feet into the air.

The steam-powered rocket, which is emblazoned with the words "FLAT EARTH" hit a top speed of 350 miles per hour before he deployed two parachutes and drifted back to safety.
