Why can't i shoot?

I, being very noobish, am trying to make a 3d Asteroids game, and can’t for the life of me make something that shoots. the attached .blend is my attempt at troubleshooting. i started from scratch, and just tried to tell the cube to shoot a copy of a sphere object when i hit spacebar. everything i’ve seen has indicated this is an absurdly easy task, so at this point i’ve got no idea what’s going wrong. thanks in advance for any help.

Hi russmanseven, I fixed up your file. Your problem was that you need to have the object that will be created on an invisible layer.
