Chinese Man Builds Giant Space Shuttle Replica On His House Roof
A farmer from China has built an incredible realistic space shuttle replica on the roof of his house. It was his dream to become an astronaut but as his dream dream didn’t come true he tried something a little different.
We’ve heard so many stories about the Chinese building temples, mountain villas and even entire farms on their rooftops that we’ve honestly lost count. And now we have a new one for you – a crazy man in Guangdong province who put a replica of a spacecraft on the roof of his home.
63-year-old Meng Ni had dreamed of becoming an astronaut ever since he was a little kid. But growing up in the remote village of Xiapu, Jiexi County, he realized early-on that there was little hope of his dream coming true. So he quickly decided to follow in his family’s footsteps and take up farming. Eventually, his farmlands grew in size and he sold them to the government for a small fortune.
It appears that Meng has pulled all the stops in building the spacecraft. He’s even made arrangements to ensure that his efforts are noticed in the dark – by installing an expensive spotlight network that illuminates the spacecraft at night. That must definitely be a sight to behold!
