On the wooded outskirts of Wilkes-Barre, Air Products owns a cavernous, century-old brick factory building. Perhaps three or four times a year, the building’s sliding doors part, giving birth to something utterly incongruous:
A huge white NASA rocket two-thirds the length of a football field.
Well, it looks like a rocket. In fact, the resemblance is purely accidental. The massive cylindrical object is something else entirely — a heat exchanger. And weighing in at more than 500 tons, it will never be airborne.
