According to an announcement on his Facebook page, Hughes says he hopes to pull off a vertical rocket launch on February 3, at a new site in Amboy, a ghost town in California. The launch will be live-streamed on Noize TV for those with a subscription and will be filmed for Mike's own full-length documentary.
If you were hoping to witness it for yourself, sorry but Mike is insisting no spectators.
"Any drone flying near the private property will be shot down – our own drones will be recording anyone filming and their license plates and the CHP will run people off along with my own security," he said, in another Facebook post, which also came with the warning: "Also, some of the crazy comments [on Facebook] will be featured in my documentary."
“Mad Mike” Hughes has launched homemade rockets with himself as the human cargo before, but he’s only recently become a Flat Earth convert at the same time he needed to raise further funds for DIY rocketry
I don’t believe in science. I know about aerodynamics and fluid dynamics and how things move through the air, about the certain size of rocket nozzles, and thrust. But that’s not science, that’s just a formula. There’s no difference between science and science fiction.
We’ve all been let down on this Flat-Earth-rocket stuff before, but Hughes seems pretty insistent that this time there will actually be a launch.
We'll see sniff

When The Post phoned Hughes on Wednesday, he said the pay-per-view company he planned to use was “going bankrupt,” and he was looking for alternatives. He contacted the paper again a few hours later to say the company would stream his event after all.
Hughes said, the hot-air balloon, rocket pack and space suit he needs to get him to the required vantage point (we're hazy on the specific logistics) will cost about $2 million.
To raise the money, Hughes was going to launch himself a mile across the Mojave Desert back in November, in a steam-powered rocket with “RESEARCH FLAT EARTH” on the side, as a fundraising stunt. Call it Phase 1 of his one-man space program.
He got the publicity he wanted, and then some, with headlines around (across) the world. But the rocket launch never happened.
