To boldly go ... somewhere

I recently read where a guy who was planning to take it upon himself to prove the earth is, in fact, flat, hit a roadblock, or rather, a rocket block, as it were. The gentleman is a member of something called the Flat Earth Society, an organization whose members -- either sincerely or as part of an elaborate world-wide practical joke -- believe that the earth is not spherical. Phase I of his plan to prove modern science and the rest of the sane world wrong by launching himself into space, via a homemade rocket, to take a picture of the actual flat disk mass we call planet Earth, apparently was stymied when the authorities -- no doubt part of the round earth conspiracy -- aborted the mission.
