well I don't agree with a flat earth but I applaud his enthusiasm to find out. Need more people willingly to try things and fail repeatedly. One of them will eventually be right.

I think it is wise to temper courage with common sense. I mean how far is a "steam powered" rocket going to go and what are the contingency plans for failure?

Watch the video clip where he achieved the height of about 1,875 feet, and landed safely by the aid of two parachutes...
A guy like Mad Mike does not understand the meaning of contingency plans for failure...He is now a Legend! (y):D..
