Seems like this story will never be put to rest no matter how many facts support or doesn't support the theory.
A man by the name of Mike Hughes had been adamant to send his homemade rocket high into the sky to make a proud statement that the Earth is indeed flat.
"I'm tired of people saying I chickened out and didn't build a rocket," he said. "I'm tired of that stuff. I manned up and did it." says Mike.
Now although the rocket did launch successfully in the air, it only excelled 572 meters high.
Think he proved his theory well? Check it out below.
Well, maybe that's a stretch. He propelled himself 1,875 feet (572 meters) into the air in the Mojave Desert, California, before plummeting back to Earth safely.
