Castles in the air - they are so easy to take refuge in. And so easy to build, too.

आम्हां घरी धन शब्दांचीच रत्नें | शब्दांचीच शस्त्रें यत्न करुं ||
शब्द चि आमुच्या जीवांचे जीवन | शब्दें वांटूं धन जनलोकां ||
तुका म्हणे पाहा शब्द चि हा देव | शब्द चि गौरव पूजा करुं ||

The impact of Eyjafjallajökull

The Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull spewed so much soot into the air that it shut down European airspace from 15th to 20th April, causing an apparent loss of US$ 200 million every day.

Here's a video that shows how European airspace looked during the time, put together by its makers from a whole lot of ATC data. My only reaction is, wow!
