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.
