Over the weekend, a 61-year-old daredevil named "Mad" Mike Hughes climbed into a homemade rocket and blasted himself 1,875 feet into the air.
Funny fact about "Mad" Mike... he still believes the Earth is flat. His steam-powered rocket even has the words "FLAT EARTH" on it.
The rocket was able to hit a top speed of 350 mph before he deployed 2 parachutes and floated back to Earth safely.
"Mad" Mike walked away a little banged up but happy to be alive. According to him, the rocket "wants to kill you 10 different ways."
How did he celebrate this death-defying feat? Well... he went home to have a quiet dinner with his cats.
