A Chinese farmer completes to make his own submarine though its maiden voyage failed. Tan Yong is a 44-year-old farmer living in Lijiashan, a village of Central China's Hubei province. He had a dream of making his own submarine years ago and started to realize it this February.
He had been educated only at junior high school and lacked professional knowledge and skills of making such a vessel. Even so, Tan spent about five months completing a submarine which weighs over one ton. Tan is determined to keep working to make it function well soon.
