Flying ants

NASA has released a simulation of 24 hours of air traffic over the continental USA.

I'm afraid it's a 13Mb download, but if you can wait, it's interesting to see the dense stream of flights to Europe 00:00-05:00 and from Europe 15:00-20:00, the continent-wide lull at 07:00 and the vast increase in mid-afternoon traffic.  The latter is very much like insects emerging from a nest, much as Boing Boing described it.


Completely irrelevant, but the word "AVIATION" on the title screen is the most hideous piece of kerning I've ever seen
