    “It was unsuccessful, and he passed away," Stakes told The Associated Press. He declined further comment.

    Must have been an Acme rocket. Didn't he learn anything from Wile E. Coyote??

    “My story really is incredible,” Hughes told the AP at the time. “It’s got a bunch of story lines — the garage-built thing. I’m an older guy. It’s out in the middle of nowhere, plus the Flat Earth. The problem is it brings out all the nuts also, people questioning everything. It’s the downside of all this.”


    Homemade rocket and Flat Earther, yet he thought others were nuts.

    Reminds me of the song: Send in the Clowns..... "Don't bother. They're here."

    "The rocket appeared to rub against the launch apparatus, which might have torn the parachutes attached to it..."

    He had time to see that flat earth coming at him fast. Hope he thought about what he had done for all of science.
