Flat Earth Fan's Homemade Rocket Launch Fizzles

A Flat Earth fan's plans to launch himself inside of a homemade rocket  over the weekend wound up being scrubbed due to technical difficulties.

After failing to pull off the highly-publicized stunt back in November, "Mad" Mike Hughes subsequently announced that he would go forward with the launch on the Saturday before the Super Bowl.

However, when the time came to launch, the Flat Earth aficionado's  rocket sat on terra firma as a rapt audience watching on site and at  home wondered what was happening.

Hughes eventually emerged and explained he could not fire up the rocket  due to a technical issue involving the device's actuator.

More on this story, including video of Hughes after the launch was scrubbed, at the Coast to Coast AM website.
