The UFO Phenomenon

Spanish writer builds his own 60ft 'spaceship'

87-year-old Lucio Ballesteros hopes that mankind will one day use the vessel to travel to an alien planet.
As far as unusual hobbies go, this one just about takes the cake.

Built on a budget of 100,000 euros, this impressive saucer-shaped spacecraft is constructed from aluminum and methacrylate and sits in its own custom parking space outside Ballesteros' house.

The vessel does not have any means of propulsion, however the 87-year-old hopes that mankind will have one day evolved enough - both psychically and spiritually - to fly it to the stars.
Its destination will be '10/7' - a fictional alien world from a series of books he has written.

The peculiar nature of his creation has captured the imagination of Xoel Mendez - a documentary filmmaker who is in the process of putting together a film about Ballesteros and his work.

News footage showing the ship, as well as its rather sparse interior, can be viewed below.

I've always wanted to build a spaceship myself. Someday, I'm going to construct a highly advanced spacecraft, and I will use the electromagnetic current of the Earth in order to power it. Essentially, my intent will be to build a craft that is capable of levitation, and it will use electrogravitics as a means of propulsion. According to some of the sources that I've found online, this is actually possible! I still have a lot of research to do, but this is something that I've been planning for years. It may be a long ways off, but one day, I'm going to build a spaceship that actually works... [More]

Based on the last few threads, two options: Blatant trolling or gone down the rabbits hole.

I never understood that commercial where they would show an egg being fried with bold words saying 'This is your brain on drugs' Now however I understand what they were trying to relay all those years ago. This is your brain on drugs. I hope this guy gets help soon.
