Human Centrifuge Gondola (#2)

A human centrifuge from the space program is located at 300 East Bristol Road. It's on a concrete platform next to a beige windowless building that looks like a box. Sign next to road says: "Anechoic Chamber Applied Research Laboratory."

This is not the same centrifuge gondola as the one at the Human Centrifuge facility in Warminster, PA.
