NASA Super Guppy plane delivers an Artemis moon capsule

NASA used the very special ’Super Guppy’ plane this week to transport the spacecraft built for its Artemis 1 moon mission from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida to the Plum Brook Station in Ohio. The Super Guppy’s odd design is meant to accommodate large pieces of equipment that can’t fit in a normal cargo plane.

I wonder why NASA chose to use a monstrously sized and expensive airplane for moving this cargo instead of blimps?
