- Accident or conspiracy? We may never know… (but probably accident)
‘Mad’ Mike Hughes would want us to question whether he died in a rocket crash because he was an amateur rocket-maker, or if he was shot down by the government because he was too close to the truth. The earth is flat.
On the 22nd Micheal Hughes – or commonly known as ‘Mad Mike’ – died in a rocket crash. He was 64 and a conspiracy theorist. He decided he was going to prove the world was flat. So he made a rocket and planned on taking photos from 5,000 feet in the air. The San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner Public Information Officer Cindy Bachman said on the 22nd saying: “A man was pronounced deceased after the rocket crashed in the open desert during a rocket launch event. Medical aid was staged for the launch and was on scene for the launch and was on the scene immediately.”
He Had A Successful Launch In 2018
“The Flat Earth thing is like everything else to me. I just want people to question everything. Question what your congressman is doing, your city council. Question what really happened during the Civil War or 9/11,” Hughes told CBS News. In October of 2018, Hughes built his rocket, mostly through trial and error. He admitted: “You don’t get a lot of second chances, though, in the rocket business.”
His Documentary ‘Rocketman’
In 2018, the documentary called ‘Rocketman’ released about Hughes. He described how he wanted to live and die. “We are supposed to come to the end of our lives not with anything left, but everything exhausted. The tires are blown down, you’re out of gasoline, you are coming to a screeching halt – you know you have done everything you can possibly do.” The Science Channel wishes the best to Hughes’ family saying “Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mike Hughes’ family and friends during this difficult time. It was always his dream to do this launch, and the Science Channel was there to chronicle his journey.”
