The Lunar Gate.

Lunar Gate (ルナゲート, Runagēto) is a location in Final Fantasy VIII. It is an airport-like facility used by Esthar to shuttle people to the Lunar Base.

To launch someone (or presumably something) into space, s/he is placed in a capsule. They then undergo a process called "cold sleep", rendering them unconscious for the trip, and are shot out of a cannon-like apparatus into space. They are "thawed" upon arrival at the Lunar Base. The Queen of Cards can also be found here.




Bizarre message on the launcher.

The screen with the launcher displays a message in the upper corner that appears to say: "Tin Can Shooter" and "UPS!! seventh and gave up on the most of the way."
