The picture in the article shows what looks like a freaking huge window and an equally huge Venetian Blind! (Left side of pic) Any ideas as to what else that could be?

Edit: I bet it is a viewing window that is the size of the glass visible. Above the window must be the spikes we see elsewhere on the walls. :face_with_monocle:

It is a viewing window. But I think the satellite was pregnant and those are doctors are actually delivering a cubesat. Mama giving birth! :grinning:

Probably an access portal… that is an RF antenna test facility… an anechoic chamber… they really don’t need reflective surfaces in there… however they do like some ventilation at times they are working… and close it with more spikes when they are… might also work as window if they need it to…
All the spikes reflect radiowaves into absorbtive material… to vanish hopefully forever…
The chambers exist in many sizes and work for RF and Audio frequencies… all for testing.
Amazing how many really big ones exist around the world.
Image almost reminds me of the Lexx… or even the Valley Forge.
