He bought 88-acres of land for the project. He's engaging fellow fans to help make the pieces. The BBC says a college student in Alabama has already built the spaceship's console. The ship is meant to be exact in every way, except for Chewbacca and, you know, a working engine. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
