The only thing he had to fear was sphere itself!
I assume the parachute you see getting ripped off immediately at launch was, uh, not supposed to do that.
I had heard of him, but didn't realize he actually "succeeded" in launching himself once, let alone twice.And the other three did not deploy, I seem to recall reading.
I’d never heard of this guy before the accident, but he seemed determined to test his hypothesis and willing to accept the alternative if it was somehow sufficiently demonstrated to him. So there’s that.
Problem is, I think it does do harm... it tries to undermine science and facts, which then potentially feeds anti-vaxxers & co. even more.As far as flaky beliefs go, I don't mind the Flat Earthers at all. Their belief in the flat earth really doesn't do much harm in the grand scheme of things.
