Via Ecns.cn, here’s a photo of a model space shuttle and rocket on a rooftop in Jiexi, Guangdong province, reportedly built by a 60-year-old farmer named Huang Yuzhan. We love everything about this: as a celebration of the can-do spirit, the very human tendency to detach from our worldly fetters and drift and spin alongside imagination as boundless as the pale blue sky, and as a simple expression of craftsmanship, patience, and (dare I say?) innovation. This photo deserves a song.

Ground Control to Major Huang
Your circuit’s dead, there’s something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Huang?
Can you hear me, Major Huang?
Can you hear me, Major Huang? …
