- The ultimate in heavy lifting.
If you're the type who can't leave anything behind, you may have to call in the MEGA MOVERS. Whether it's a 19th century church or a massive brick office building, there are few things our experts can't relocate. Of course, when it comes time to lift a structure from its foundations and head down the road (at a fraction of a mile an hour), every creak and groan can provide a vital clue, and a mistake of an inch could spell disaster.
When it comes to ambitious moves, NASA might well be in a class by itself. But before a countdown can even begin, the agency has to get all the equipment to the launch site. MEGA MOVERS heads to Florida, where the crew of one of the world's most unusual looking airplanes moves a piece of the International Space Station to a facility in Alabama. And in Colorado, NASA uses a massive Russian cargo jet to transport sections of the Atlas Satellite Rocket for an upcoming launch. Do these engineers have the right stuff to get the job done?
