The Week contest: Rocket man
Last week's question: A California man is fighting the government for the right to fire himself 1,800 feet above the Mojave Desert in a homemade rocket, so he can take a photo of the Earth and prove that the planet is flat. If Hollywood were to make a film about this Flat Earther's madcap project, what would it be called?
