1. An engineer for the space exploration company SpaceX has outlined an elaborate plan to build Star Trek's USS Enterprise, which he says could be ready to fly within the next 20 years.

    "We have the technological reach to build the first generation of the spaceship… so let’s do it," writes BTE Dan on his website, BuildTheEnterprise.org (which has been loading intermittently because of heavy traffic). 

    The website includes conceptual blueprints, budgeting proposals, a timeline for research and development, and almost every other conceivable detail.

    Could they actually pull this off?
