Sherrouse spaceship

The Sherrouses have made a spaceship for their son Noah. The story has been on Reddit, the Huffington Post, CNET and lots of other places. One of the Times' reporters heard about it and was like "hey, why haven't we covered it?" The editors knew I know the Sherrouses, so I got the assignment.

“I think it's important to tell kids to dream big,” he said. “It sounds cheesy, but I hope it inspires other people to do similar things.”

Daniel said he'll probably never be 100 percent finished with the spaceship. He plans to adapt it as Noah ages.

“When he's older, I plan on us working on it together,” he said. “Sixteen months isn't the best age for power tools.”

P.S. That image at the top had nothing to do with the story. But I have the Red Five font and could not resist.
