Life of the Panama Canal




This interesting time-lapse video shows a little part of the life of the Panama Canal, as traffic passes through the world's most famous waterway. 
The incredible footage was shot at the Miraflores locks, at the Pacific entrance of the canal, where water is drained and filled before ships can go through. The video shows a ship going in and out the steel gates of Miraflores locks, which were considered one of the world’s greatest engineering projects.

The 48-mile Panama Canal, which joins the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, opened for business 100 years ago and remains a technological marvel to today, having changed world trade forever.
