I'm sick of the government sticking it's ugly corrupt nose into everything, most commercial flights are way way above 1800 feet


Well hell, I guess anyone should just be able to launch anything they want to 18 feet then, right? Damn government. I mean, who cares if it's a flat earth rocket, a short range missile, or a bomb. If it all turns out bad, and people are killed we'll just call it a false flag anyway.

FREEDOM!!!!!

Sure, lets let everyone just shoot rockets all over the place. What could go wrong.

Didn't his vehicle break down the morning he was leaving for his launch so he cancelled.

US Government Shuts Down Flat-Earther's Rocket Launch


Probably so they don't hurt themselves...

“It's still happening. We're just moving it three miles down the road,” Hughes told The Washington Post on Friday. “This is what happens anytime you have to deal with any kind of government agency.”

He wasn't so much "shut down", he just never applied for a permit for his publicity stunt on public land.

At first glance you would think this was a good idea.

But what if the government shutdown the Wright Brothers at Kitty Hawk?

Article



Mad" Mike Hughes, a flat-Earth conspiracy theorist, will have to wait a little longer to test his science-busting rocket.

Hughes had previously announced plans to launch himself in a homemade rocket to a height of 1,800 feet (550 meters) above California's Mojave Desert. But the launch, which Hughes had said would take place Nov. 25, did not happen. NPR reports that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) "got wind" of the plan after the Associated Press reported Hughes' announcement. The agency shut down Hughes' launch, which would have taken place on public land.


First off, this is going to do nothing but fuel flat earthers fire. Secondly, what business is it of government to shut down this guys fantasy? If he hurts himself so what?? Doesn't he have the right to hurt himself?


Flat Earthers are unintelligent, irrational and illogical. That is the reason their rocket launch would be shut down.

Would you want unintelligent, irrational and illogical people launching explosives into the air? I doubt it.

Public safety is the reason. It's the same reason you don't give patients at mental health facilities access to nuclear weapons.
Public safety and common sense.
