Writer Creates Spaceship to Visit Fictional Planet
Lucio Ballesteros, an 87 year-old writer from Spain, has constructed a 2,600 pound spacecraft. The ship is 60 feet long, and made of aluminum and methacrylate. Once he installs motors, he hopes it will someday travel to planet 10/7. Ballesteros has written about the fictional planet, inhabited by beings similar to us, in his novels.
