See this! I wonder if he got to see if the world is flat from up there?

Mad Mike made it to the very peak of this chart.

I've heard that there are members of the Flat Earth Society all around the globe.

baffling; ....how can someone build a rocket large enough to ride in and 200 feet up question the world flat?.....he should have given a piper cub owner 5 bucks at a local air field for a ride and saved a lot of heart ache and his butt.......I will never as long as I live understand the human race.

For a few hundred bucks he could have sent a balloon with a camera up to 50k+ feet to prove the point. I agree with Scott; this was a Darwin award; natural selection at its finest.

....or as my mom tried to instill in us little blighters: "If everybody thought the same, the world would be an awfully dull place."

Edit: I dunno how much trust I'd put into that $5 plane ride.  The yocal flying club has a promotional day each spring; I think their rate is       $25-30.

He may have believed that the Earth was "flat", but found out by experience that rocket flight paths definitely have a curve to them...

I went to a "amateur" rocket shoot where they rerouted all air traffic over the area for the day.

There was everything from kids homemade ones to some with onboard computers launched by scientists.

They wouldn't set one off unless all eyes were on when they hit Liftoff.

When a rocket goes straight up & then straight back down into the ground they call it a Core Sample! 

http://www.calgaryrocketry.org/launch-sites.shtml  I went to one in Hanna. I think it's a dry lake bed.

Hubby loves Mad Mike. Yeah, MM was a nut, but he made life interesting. I don't think I'm going to pass on this news. Hubby would feel his lose too much.
