I came across this very interesting video about the Panama Canal, and the project currently underway to widen it. It talks a bit about the history of the canal, how it was first built, and how it operates. Now there are mega ships that are much larger than anything that can fit through the canal today. What challenges do the engineers face in making new locks and new passageways for these mega ships?
I find the canal fascinating. If you do too, maybe you’ll enjoy this 45 minute documentary.
