That's more an example of someone scamming the scammers to fund his awesomely insane hobby.
I give mad Mike credit for actually harnessing the flat earth movement to accomplish something useful. He got them to help him make his dream of
launching himself in a rocket a reality.
They helped one man do something few others would dare to dream of, and that alone is pretty cool.
Building a DIY ultralight, powered parawing, or autogyro would get you to much higher altitudes and be more useful for research Into the shape of the
earth, but they don't have anywhere near the cool factor of a steam powered rocket launched from the back of a modified Winnebago!
