Well as they said, he did it
Pretty amazing task to accomplish
Second chute was perfect

I am suitably impressed with that achievement, not something you see everyday
Man shoots himself at 350 mph just shy 2000 feet

Flat earth, who cares.
Plenty of other people do stupid things everyday for attention
Took some courage

Right, although I find this a silly idea, he takes stuff into his own hands and makes it work. Great respect for someone like that, although I don´t share is view on earth as bein flat.

Somebody needs to tell that guy you can't prove the earth is flat by going up into the atmosphere! Sure the earth looks cured at 2,000 feet because of the curvature of the observer's eyeball!

Sheeesh, I thought everyone knew that; at least thats what they taught us in school.

Politics would be a perfect fit for this guy. Years of prep, self promotion, and $$$ spent to do something college kids have already been doing with an off-the-shelf weather balloon and an Iphone. Come to think of it, did he take any pictures?

Is there any ancient or esoteric type info regarding this whole flat Earth thing? Or is it some new age stuff?

Elon Musk should offer a billion dollars to the first person to take a picture of the flat Earth with all seven continents visible.

How in this day and age can anyone really thing the Earth is flat , Are they for real?


Totally crazy. Everyone knows that the Earth is really a doughnut shape. That explains the hollow Earth theory. The ice caps are the interior of the doughnut. Because there is little sunlight all the ice collects there. And the Equator is the hottest part of the Earth because it's on the outermost edge closest to the Sun.

Dude, he powered his rocket with STEAM!

That alone makes this insanely awesome... Completely impractical, but insanely awesome!

Having looked into this story pretty extensively I can pretty confidently but not with absolute certainty say that what makes this story even more awesome is how he scammed flerfers into helping fund his rocket hobby!

I'm pretty certain mad Mike isn't and never has been a flerfer, but after multiple original crowd funding campaigns failed to come even close to raising the money he needed, I believe that he bit the bullet and decided that actually getting his dream funded was worth pretending to be a flerfer to make happen.

I'm like 98% sure that this dude milked dirty flerfer LOLcowz to pay for his rocket...

In my mind that makes him a double hero / the guy dos Equis beer company should pay to play the most interesting man in the world on their beer commercials.

Yeah, the fact that he used Steam to power the rocket actually makes it super cool in my opinion.

Having worked with steam, I can safely say that the truly amazing part of all this is how he somehow made room in the rocket for the massive brass testicles he obviously has in order to be willing to launch himself on a column of live steam.

Truly a marvel of engineering...

What an idiot. Can't believe he actually got in the rocket.

Not only he almost DIED trying to prove an, also idiot, theory, he put other people's live in danger sending this home-made rocket into air.
