November 9 - Mammoet has transported the Apollo 4 capsule from the NASA Stennis Space Center in Pearlington, Mississippi to the nearby Infinity Science Center where it will be put on public display.
The capsule, which measures 10.5 ft (3.2 m) tall, made the first unmanned flight on the giant Saturn V launch vehicle in 1967. Before moving the historic piece, Mammoet developed a detailed plan to transport the capsule from the first floor of the Space Center 6 miles (9.7 km) away to the second floor of the Infinity Science Center.
The module was lifted from its original position with a forklift and transported to the Infinity Science Center by trailer, where it was set on castors and rolled into the building.
Mammoet set up a skid track on top of a mobile gantry system, before placing the space capsule on the system with a forklift. The gantry was then transported 50 ft (15.2 m) to the second floor overhang in order to skid the capsule into position.
