WATCH: The hauling and unboxing of a highly technical telescope


A semi truck does its part to facilitate the unboxing of a highly advanced telescope in this fascinating video. 

The telescope, called the James Webb Space Telescope, will eventually be launched into space by the European Space Agency in French Guiana. 

In the video, the rig can be seen hauling the enormous telescope in its special container through the facility after navigating the streets of French Guiana from Pariacabo Harbor to the space port’s cleanroom for the unboxing. The driver then manages to back the enormous container into the warehouse. 

Now all that’s left is to load the telescope onto a rocket, launch it into space, and collect some data. 

Check out the unique oversize load, below.
