“I don’t believe in science,” said Hughes, whose main sponsor for the rocket is Research Flat Earth.
“I know about aerodynamics and fluid dynamics and how things move through the air, about the
certain size of rocket nozzles, and thrust. But that’s not science, that’s just a formula.
There’s no difference between science and science fiction.”

Just goes to show you that one does not need to be "mentally ill" to be perceived as crazy. All you need is a deep-seated and unshakeable commitment to a set of irrational beliefs and a confirmation bias that mke such beliefs impervious to any contrary evidence. Lotsa folks like that out there.

It seems to me that launching a rocket to determine the shape of the Earth would pass as science.

Hypothesis: Earth is flat.
Experiment: Launch a rocket.
Observe: See if the Earth looks flat
Evaluate: Are my observations consistent with my hypothesis?

Looks, smells and sounds like science to me.

He's going to 1800'? Jesus, that's just the CN Tower. I've been on airliners at 41-42,000', you can see a long goddam way but you still can't really see curvature. You'd need to be 100,000'+++

Ah well, he has his name and picture in the papers whoopee
