NASA – A Day in US Airspace

“FACET Data Visualization of US airspace:”
It absolutely blows my mind seeing this data displayed, can you imagine the fuel we must consume to keep these planes aloft? Look at how many planes are in the air at any given time! With the thousands of flights that are completed every day, it’s hard to be afraid of crashes. I suppose it’s the lack of control that makes people so afraid of flying, even though driving a car is so much more dangerous (statistically). Regardless, NASA’s got a really cool software here for the ATC big board, props to them!
