The last time 'Mad' Mike Hughes (his words, not ours) attempted a rocket launch, it never got off the ground - though it did at least launch him into the limelight.
Now, the 61-year-old limo driver hopes to launch a second rocket emblazoned with 'RESEARCH FLAT EARTH' on 3 February.
His first bid to prove the Earth is flat, and disprove thousands of years' of scientific fact in the process, apparently cost him just $20,000 (£15,000).
But his initial attempt to launch himself 1,800 feet (550 metres) in the air was shut down by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). He had planned to take photos 'proving' the Earth was flat and then eject himself with a parachute, leaving the rocket to crash into Bureau owned land.
This time though, he hopes to pull off a vertical rocket launch so the rocket doesn't land on Bureau property, as he explained in a video.
