Every Plane Flight in the World Over One Year

quote [ This globe displays one year of global air passenger traffic. The data comes from modeled estimates compiled for the Vector-borne Disease Airport Importation Risk project. In 2010, the year for which the data was modeled, there were roughly 30 million commercial flights around the world carrying about 2.8 billion passengers.

In the graphic, the air passenger flows are visualized as 1.4 million particles ? each one representing 2,000 passengers. Airports are shown as purple spheres, with their size denoting total passenger traffic over the year. ]

Postcards from Kupari: Visiting Croatia?s ?Bay of Abandoned Hotels?

quote [ Behind us, the cypress thickets buzzed with the chatter of a thousand unseen minibeasts. The noise rose on a warm, herb-scented wind, swelling and falling back, shimmering like heat haze. Up ahead it was swallowed by the sea, where the clear Adriatic waters massaged hungrily at the shore. ]

The Ruins of Suakin Island

quote [ The island town of Suakin, in north-eastern Sudan, was an important port for trade and culture on the East African coast for centuries. The town is located on a flat, oval-shaped island, on the west coast of the Red Sea, inside a narrow inlet that penetrates four kilometer inland and ends in a wide basin about two kilometers across. There are two round coral islands in the shallow basin. One of the islands is deserted and contains nothing but a cemetery. ]
