In this fascinating video, a big truck plays a role in the unboxing of a very high-tech telescope.

The European Space Agency plans to launch the James Webb Space Telescope from French Guiana in the future.

The rig is shown in the video unpacking the massive telescope in the cleanroom of the spaceport after traversing the streets of French Guiana from Pariacabo Harbor. Once inside, the driver manages to maneuver the massive container into position.

All that’s needed is to deploy the telescope into orbit and begin gathering data.

Consider this one-of-a-kind heavyweight.
