Illustration for article titled This Is How NASA Moves Its Fancy Orion Capsule And Who Knows What Else

A very large truck is moving something enormous near Jacksonville, Florida right now, and whatever it is, it looks as though it is connected to a sophisticated cooling system. Back in December 2014, NASA moved a similar-looking container with the Orion capsule inside to Kennedy Space Center following Orion’s successful returned to Earth from its maiden flight.


While the ungainly-looking container, which appears to be made up of multiple trapezoid-shaped surfaces, that was spotted in transit today very closely resembles the enclosure seen late last year, that doesn’t necessarily mean that there’s an Orion capsule inside of it this time.


If you know what the moving mystery pod is hiding, let us know in the comments!
