NASA Air Traffic Simulation (FACET)

Thanks to a new NASA simulation tool: Future ATM (Air Traffic Management) Concepts Evaluation Tool, or FACET; researchers are now able to create realistic simulations of air traffic around  the world, based on historical flight plan info, weather conditions, etc.

With over 5000 airplanes in the air over the USA in any single day, the following simulations are mesmerizing... More so when they simulate the air traffic on Sept. 11, 2001.
