> Chinese media reveals that the vertical assembly building in Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center has set many world records. The VAB, code >name 920-520, built by the 8th Division of CSCEC, is the world's largest concrete rocket assembly building, is also the world's tallest >single-floor concrete building, and has the world's tallest(86.1m above the ground) and heaviest(13000 tons) concrete building roof.
This claim is of course correctly qualified, as the Cape Canaveral VAB is not built in concrete. Is the KSC VAB in fact higher than the PRC one?
