Spencer M., age 10, Las Vegas, Nevada
(Nutritious Atmospheric Spanish Appetizer)"
Spencer says, "I made my spacecraft from flour and corn tortillas. The whole ship is edible. The red and blue stars are from corn tortillas colored with food coloring. The white stars are made from a flour tortilla. The windows are made from corn tortillas and cheese. The entire ship is held together with refried beans. The landing gear is black olives with red peppers for the skids. The ladder is made from a corn tortilla. The booster rockets on the bottom are made of hot sauce, which is sure to give a gigantic lift-off."
