Michael Hughes, a famous stunt man and a supporter of the theory of the «flat Earth», explained his rejection of attempts to fly into space aboard a rocket built them this weekend that the US authorities have not given permission for this action, reports International Business Times.

«We wondered whether we need such permission, and representatives of the Bureau previously, we were told that any additional securities, we do not need. Posts about my plans has appeared in all the leading media of the world last week. Probably one of the senior officials of the Ministry saw the news, and he, apparently, was required to «verify» my work,» said Hughes.

Hughes considers himself to a small group of misfits who claim that the Earth is actually flat, as the Bible tells and myths of the ancient Greeks, and that all images from telescopes and pictures of the Earth from orbit are the result of a conspiracy of scientists and a sophisticated fake.

This conspiracy theory Hughes planned to prove last weekend, went in flight to his own built rocket. She had hoped the stunt, had to climb to a height of about 550 meters and to fly about a kilometer and reaches a speed of 1,000 kilometres per hour.

This missile is not a direct analogue of the Russian «Proton», American «Saturn» or even Falcon 9 Elon musk or Blue Shepherd Jeff Bezos – from its nozzle break is not the fuel combustion products and the compressed vapor, pumped into the tank is «spaceship» under a lot of pressure.

The launch of this device, as promised, Hughes, was held Saturday at the abandoned town of Amboy in the Mojave desert, but this did not happen. At the end of last week, according to conspiracy, he was contacted by representatives of the Bureau of land management of the Ministry of internal Affairs of the United States which have notified Hughes that it cannot conduct such launches without their permission.

As noted stuntman, the site where supposed to be run, has sufficient size in order to ensure the safety of spectators and any other persons, and therefore such a decision of the Ministry of upset him. All of these problems Hughes hopes to resolve before the end of this week, however, it suggests that the launch will take place no earlier than Tuesday or Wednesday.
