NASA Crawler-Transporter...World’s biggest Self-powered tracked vehicle.
Built by: Marion Power Shovel of America.There are two crawler-transporters used by NASA, and today they carry space shuttles — boosters and all — along with each shuttle’s Mobile Launcher Platform into position. While not as large as the Bagger 288 above, the crawlers are the largest self-powered vehicles in the world, and can manage two miles per hour (compared to the Bagger’s 30-some feet a minute) when unloaded.
MS Oasis of the Seas...World’s Largest, longest passenger ship.
Built by: STX Europe of Finland.The Oasis of the Seas, currently the only Oasis-class passenger ship in the world, proved just how big it was when it set a 6,000-passenger record. The ship boasts some crazy luxuries, including but not limited to two-story suites, a minigolf course and indoor zip-line, multiple pools, night clubs, bars and stores, and even the world’s first “living park at sea” with over 12,000 plants and dozens of trees on board. It will be joined by a second Oasis-class vessel later this year.
Knock Nevis Supertanker...World's Longest ship ever built
Built by: Sumitomo Heavy Industries of Japan.To really get a sense of the size of the Knock Nevis, picture this: at over 1,500 feet in length, it’s longer than the Empire State Building is tall. The Nevis has been cruising the seas since 1979 under several different names, and it was actually sunk in the ’80s during the Iran-Iraq War, but the wreckage was bought, floated and rebuilt. In terms of pure tonnage, there’s a ship heavier — France’s Batillus-class supertankers — but none longer. The Nevis is going to be scrapped this year, so consider this a send-off.
Airbus A380...World's biggest Passenger airliner
Built by: Airbus.The A380 started flying commercially in 2007, and is considered a “superjumbo” jet as it’s quite a bit larger than its “jumbo” brethren, such as the 747-400. In fact, the A380′s interior is 1.5 times as large as a 747′s, with over 5,000 square feet of floor space that accommodates anywhere between from 525 to over 800 passengers, depending on the seat layout. There are less than 50 A380s in the world today, but in the next few years there could be well over 200 thanks to the demand from airlines, which will make it less of specialty aircraft and more of a workhorse.
Antonov An-225 Mriya...World’s biggest Fixed-wing aircraft
Built by: Antonov Design Bureau of Soviet Russia.The An-225′s massive 290-foot wingspan makes it the largest plane flying today, and its cargo hold is so big that the entirety of the Wright brothers’ historic first flight could have taken place inside the Mriya. The craft can carry a space shuttle on its back, and it transports all manner of heavy loads, including train engines, 150-ton generators for power plants and 130-foot-long wind-turbine blades.
