Ever wondered what the NASA-Ames Moffet Field Facility looks like if you drive around in it aimlessly for a little while late in the evening? Thanks to a recent research volunteer’s amateur video exploits, now you can find out. What the hell is that scaffolded thing that looks like an immense high-frequency speaker horn?

IIRC it’s a airflow duct for a wind tunnel. It’s shaped that way to reduce noise for supersonic airflow.
Robert is correct. That windtunnel is large enough to hold the space shuttle orbiter.
