The 52-story Vehicle Assembly Building at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida is where the giant Saturn 5 rockets were assembled for the Apollo moon program, and today it’s where space shuttles get their rockets and fuel tanks attached. Philippine filmmaker Paolo Dy paid a visit to the building in the company of other Twitterers this month, during a NASA tweetup that was timed to coincide with the now-delayed launch of the space shuttle Discovery. Dy loves to play around with 3-D video, and the cavernous Vehicle Assembly Building provided an irresistible setting. Here’s what Dy came up with. You’ll need red-blue glasses to get the 3-D effect, but they’re relatively easy to find — and once you have them, there are plenty of other space scenes to see.
