An effort to prove the earth flat reportedly failed on Saturday.
“A man died in what authorities described as a rocket crash in the desert in Barstow on Saturday afternoon,” KTLA-TV reported Saturday.
“Authorities did not identity the pilot pending positive identification by coroner’s officials. Witnesses and news reports indicted the launch was an event hosted by local daredevil ”Mad Mike Hughes, an amateur rocket builder intent on proving that the Earth is flat,” KTLA reported.

He didn't die, he was taken away. The ever powerful round earth brigade, took him away, away to be reconditioned, to be reprogrammed. After the "therapy"  and extensive plastic surgery, don't be surprised if this Rocketeer, resurfaces as a 5 year old rocketress.

I suppose he did prove that it was hard.

He was testing out a rocket for his new book. Someone else had to finish it. His name was Horizontal Henry

From downunder this morning...

Self-taught rocket scientist 'Mad' Mike Hughes dies in rocket crash in California.

Laughably, Hughes stated during a 2018 interview with the Associated Press that he had plans to run for governor of California.

I found the video of the flight on Twitter. The parachute ripped off the rocket in the first few moments of the launch, then it did the typical arcing flight, going nearly vertical into the ground in a large cloud of dust. 

It’s not the 
V= V1 +at
That kills you,
It’s the 
F = M Delta T
          Delta V

I tried pasting the proper formula with the greek letters, no luck.

The parachute should have been deployed after apogee when the descent speed was high enough to inflate it reliably. Deployment at launch is a massive failure, obviously.

I suspect that Mother Earth got the last laugh here as she flattened him out all over the desert.

Oh the irony of it all ...

Surely if the earth was round, he would've just rolled off?

Well, in non-math terms, its not the velocity that kills you, it is the sudden stop of it... Wink

I had a guy come charging at us once, waving a fucking sword. He took about 20 rounds of .50 cal. to the chest and changed his plans. This rocketman shit is the second dumbest thing I've ever seen.
