Remarkable that he got up that high and didn't kill himself.

Amazing that such people can't get that the moon gives us a clue as to what large collections of molecules look like when suspended in space.

I woud bet he is just seeking publicity. It would be easy to prove himself wrong. All he has to do is fly around the world. Book flights around the world during the day. Keep following the sun. If he finds the edge, he wins, if he gets back home .. he loses. Why go through all these shenanigans?

You can orbit a flat sheet, or any shape rock.
