I love the fucking ridiculous scale of the VAB. Like, you could fully assemble *four* Saturn V rockets at the same time in there. NASA wasn’t fucking around during the space race. The government gave them a blank check, and goddamn it, they were gonna use it.

Also that building is so large, it has clouds that form near the ceiling
