Air traffic in 24 hours

     This link was in our internet service provider's monthly email newsletter today.  The video was taken from a satellite and shows the air traffic across the globe over a 24-hour period.  It has been condensed down to one minute and 12 seconds.  From space, it looks like a beehive of activity that flows from continent to continent, day to night. 
      It is amazing there are so many flights in each 24 hour period!  What a wonderful safety record the airline industry has!
