Daredevil and Flat Earth theorist Michael "Mad Mike" Hughes died Saturday in a rocket crash. Hughes, 64, wanted to prove the Flat Earth theory by taking photographs of the Earth from a homemade rocket.

In the 2018 documentary "Rocketman," Hughes described how he wanted to live and die. "We are supposed to come to the end of our lives not with anything left, but everything exhausted," Hughes said. "The tires are blown down, your out of gasoline, you are coming to a screeching halt -- you know you have done everything you can possible do."
