The Ultimate Moving Experience: Troll-A Gas Platform

What's the largest thing you've ever moved? Your fridge? Imagine if you have to move something larger than all of the house stuff you've accumulated. Say, something like a the Troll-A gas platform:

It stands almost 500 meters tall and weighs 656,000 tons - it's one of the biggest man-made objects ever towed (it has now been dwarfed by Texaco's Petronius platform which is "arguably" the tallest structure in the world.)

Bigger than any aircraft carrier, higher than most TV towers, this vessel asks for a titanic team of ships to tow it to another location - and imagine splash this thing would make if it toppled!
