There's a documentary film about him. "Rocketman: Mad Mike's Mission to Prove the Flat-Earth" "A crew of dreamers work through trials and tribulations attempting to launch Michael 'Mad Mike' Hughes in a homemade rocket on a mission to prove that the Earth is flat". https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8372368/

 Flat-Earther Mike Hughes dies in rocket mishap
Posted on Sunday, 23 February, 2020 |

The self-taught rocket scientist and daredevil was killed during an attempt to prove that the Earth is flat.
The avid flat-Earth enthusiast, who had twice launched himself into the air aboard rockets of his own design and construction, had been attempting a third, even more ambitious launch on Saturday with the goal of reaching an altitude of 5,000ft before parachuting back down to terra firma.

The launch, which took place outside Barstow in San Bernardino County, California, started off promisingly enough but things took a turn for the worse when a parachute ripped off during flight.

With nothing to break the rocket's fall, Hughes plummeted to the ground and died on impact.

His previous launch in March 2018 had seen two parachutes slow his descent, although he had still impacted the ground with considerable force, resulting in a minor back injury.
Hughes' ultimate goal was to develop his rocket to the point where he would be able to see the curvature of the Earth (or lack thereof) using a rocket/gas-balloon-hybrid.

Each successive flight had essentially been a stepping stone towards this goal.

"Michael 'Mad Mike' Hughes tragically passed away today during an attempt to launch his homemade rocket," the Science Channel (which had been documenting his progress) wrote on Twitter.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends during this difficult time. It was always his dream to do this launch and Science Channel was there to chronicle his journey."

Sony is Producing a New Doc Savage TV Series

Sony is Producing a New Doc Savage TV Series
Before the Man of Steel, there was the Man of Bronze. And now, Sony is gearing up to introduce him to a whole new generation of audiences. Via Deadline, Sony Pictures Television is developing a new Doc Savage TV series.

Sony will produce the series alongside Neal H. Moritz’s Original Film and Condé Nast Entertainment. Previously, Moritz and Sony were planning to reboot the Doc Savage franchise as a movie with Iron Man 3 helmer Shane Black directing and Dwayne Johnson playing the title role. Unfortunately, the film never got off the ground, but Moritz apparently always felt that a TV show would give them more space to develop the characters.


Doc Savage was created by Henry Ralston, John Nanovic, and Lester Dent and made his debut appearance in his own eponymous magazine in 1933. Also known as Clark Savage, Jr., the character was a jack of all trades: a scientist, a physician, an explorer, a detective, and more. From an early age, he was trained to reach peak physical and mental performance. He also possessed a photographic memory and virtually unmatched martial arts skills.

Over the next several decades, Savage went on to appear in various novels, comics, and radio series. Additionally, a film adaptation hit theaters in 1975 with Ron Ely headlining. The character’s impact on the then-burgeoning superhero genre can’t be understated. In fact, Stan Lee once suggested that without Doc Savage, there wouldn’t be any modern superheroes.

Are you excited to hear that Doc Savage is making a comeback on TV? Who would you cast to play the title character? Tell us what you think in the comment section below!
