Here is my best explanation:

'a space traveller' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'radio set especially designed' is the wordplay.
'especially designed' indicates an anagram (letters re-designed in a particular way).
'radio'+'set'='radioset'
'radioset' anagrammed gives 'ASTEROID'.

'for' acts as a link.
