If he hit an altitude of 2000ft, he’d have impacted at about 245mph. If he hit 3000ft high, he’d have been going almost 300mph at impact.

If 1000’ high, about 175mph at impact.

Regardless, he was little more than a pile of goo at the end.

He was probably dead on take off.

Broken neck I'd bet.

The problem with his rocket is that it wasn't wide enough for him to be seated supine inside of it. The initial G forces of launch killed him.

Because his legs were above him, upon acceleration the blood in them would rush to his head, causing him to black out.

I bet the parachute was set up as part of a dead man switch, if he blacked out, the parachute deployed.

I suspect Evel Knievel, used a similar device for the Snake River jump.

The problem with these sort of rockets is that they have almost instant acceleration instead of a gradual one.



That Mad Mike survive a previous launch is remarkable.

Notice at the end, the Nazi scientist inventor didn’t get scooped up by OP Paperclip or the Russians version either, for that matter. Nope. Instead, he de used to move to ARGENTINA, and later in his life, moved back to Germany. How convenient.

The Natter was a shitty design proof that they knew the pilot could be killed on takeoff was that during launch a computer controlled the flight of the rocket plane until the pilot woke up from the initial blackout.

The reason I am unsympathetic is because he literally was not able to learn from the mistakes and experiments of those that came before him.

That is what 'believing' in flat earth did to him. He was unable to discern between good information and bad info, so he had to 'prove it all himself'.

All he had to do was watch the Red Bull Stratos video, they show the entire ascent and descent of Felix Baumgartner. And yes, there was curvature, and no, there was no 'ice wall' or 'infinite plane'.

"However, in the interview with Space.com, Hughes clarified, "although I do believe in the flat Earth, this was never an attempt to prove that."

"This flat Earth has nothing to do with the steam rocket launches, it never did, it never will. I'm a daredevil!" he added. He additionally shared that he wanted to launch "to inspire people.""
