The Panama canal is a really impressive feat of engineering. To think that man kind dug a whole river through Panama and created a complex shipping route that the whole world is benefiting now.

There was a documentary on here about a mega dam that China made. Supposedly it was so huge it managed to slightly alter the rotational speed of the earth.

I'm surprised there are no specifically-defined directional lanes. It's seriously scary watching large and small ships passing each other so closely as they travel in opposite directions. Would love to know what the accident ratio is.
Moqxi 12 gün önce
almost 0 since boats do not go that fast. also when entering the locks large boats are driven by professionals at the same time the use tug boats and little trains to guide them

I really appreciate you sharing this. At least it's possible to see what it's like to go through it. Back while at school and in sixth grade we got to learn about the Panama Canal. I found the whole matter was amazing, fascinating and intriguing and I thought about for a long time. There were times I had fantasies of going on a cruise that would go through it but with how much that could cost, am not sure of that.

This video has satiated my desire to see the Panama Canal for months on end. Next week I am off on a cruise to experience it first hand. Not sure why, but this system of moving ships fascinates me as if I were a child. The fact is was built in the decade of the 1910's, without computers and modern machinery shows what men (and women) can do when they put their minds to accomplish good for the betterment of the people.

I actually learned recently that the canal locks are at angles so the force imparted by the larger body of water seals it shut. Apparently Da Vinci had that as an idea too!

The US actually originally considered building it in Nicaragua because of the lake and the San Juan River which would cut down on the digging required. They even did surveys and plans were pretty much underway. So what made them change to Panama? Enter the French. The French already attempted to build a canal in Panama with the help of Ferdinand de Lesseps who also developed the Suez Canal. Attempt because they tried to build it the exact same way they did in Egypt, it didn't work, thousands of workers died and when he realized how the canal should be built, it was too late. Investments ran out, everyone gave up on it and left...except for one man, Philippe Bunau-Varilla. He wanted to earn big bucks on the canal, and did whatever it took. So he persuaded the US, saying that they'd have to worry about a volcano by distributing a Nicaragua stamp with an eruption to Congress, and it worked. But there was a problem, Panama was Colombian at the time, and while Colombia initially supported the French building the canal, the Colombian senate was now against it. This led to the US and Philippe working together, got Panamanians on their side, and began a revolution to break Panama away. To stop a Colombian response to retake it, the US sent its navy to secure the new country. And of course, the US was the first to recognize Panamanian independence

The ship at 4:35 - the "Island Princess" (bigger than the ship we're on) shows the ABSOLUTE MAXIMUM size of vessel (Panamax) that could traverse the Canal before the new locks were opened :-)

I'm not on any ship right now, but the video was shot from the "Ocean Princess" It tells you in the video description.

I see two locks side by side. Why can't they just remove that barrier in between and combine the two locks into one essentially doubling the size of the locks?
EASYTIGER10 5 yıl önce
Slavko Gelo 2 Main reasons: 1) Having 2 locks side by side allows 2 way travel (one lock can be going "up" while the other goes "down" allowing far more traffic. 2) A huge lock requires a lot of water movement which is wasteful and slow. Also, deconstructing a lock would require you to entirely close the canal for an extended period. Building new locks and cuts allows you to keep the canal open.

We went through the canal on a cruise ship when i was 12 on vacation with my family. At the time, I remember being very bored and to a 12 year old it is quite ugly. I wanted to go back to Costa Rica where there were monkeys and banana trees. I am now 33 and thanks to this video and the wonders of the internet, I can truly appreciate the engineering of the canal.

The thing I really love about this interconnected world today: I can take this video, watch the encapsulated moment from the viewpoint of a ship actually traversing the Panama Canal, and then I can go boot up Google Earth, zoom way in on Panama, and actually chart the course you took through the locks and reservoir, and see satellite images of the exact same places, but from a geological perspective. If like, a teacher had simply shown this video and booted up Google maps, I would have cared significantly more about geography and history when I was actually in school.

It's counter intuitive that big ships take less time to transit due to displacing more water, requiring less water to equalize the locks. Great video, thank you.
Steve Noble

NK1006 5 yıl önce
But when the ship drives into the lock, the door is open so the water level is same as it is for a smaller ship because extra water escapes through the door. So, you need the same amount of water to raise the level to the same height.
gimmethegepgun 4 yıl önce
Gunslinger 256 That's not correct. The displaced water freely flows in or out while the locks are open. Raising or lowering it by a certain amount always requires the same amount of water (if a big ship required less it would mean it was hitting the bottom). Tides probably change how much the outer ones need to be raised or lowered though, since the ocean water will be at differing levels throughout the day, but the height they're being raised to is the same.

I dont think that was in the original thoughts when making the canal. Something more like "lets not have to go around an entire continent to reach the pacific." Either that or I am big dumb and misunderstood

Hello Im from Panama, and yes thw direction is changed everytime it's ordered to, also new ones were built that are a lot bigger
Tao Liu
Tao Liu 2 yıl önce
It's actually easier to allow transit in both directions. This is because the locks needs to be flooded or drained depending on the direction of travel. It's actually more efficient to alternate passage directions.
KishaScape Yıl önce
Yeah just depends on the traffic. Railroads also do similar depending on the traffics.
Marvin Turner

At 6:25 as the ship we are viewing from (Ocean Princess) is exiting the Gatún Locks (Atlantic Ocean side) there is a white and red ship entering the adjacent lane in the opposite direction. A cruise ship had just used that lane in the same direction as the OP. Also at 6:34 another ship is approaching the lane OP just exited. So yes, direction switches as needed.

pulse_main no, American aircraft carriers cannot fit through the Panama Canal. That’s why the US keeps carriers in the Pacific and in the Atlantic. Helicopter based carriers to seem to juuuuust barely fit, but fixed wing carriers like the Nimitz are far too wide. The Iowa class battleship can just barely fit, like within inches, and the battleships did frequently traverse the canals, but the Iowa class has since been retired.

Watching the giant cruise ship settle into the locks was pretty cool. The whole thing is cool. I didn't get the scale of the whole thing, until a tiny little ant person went to the bow. Speaking of ants, that's what the tugboats looked like; worker ants running around taking care of things, carrying big ships thru their nest like giant bugs they captured to eat.

Transiting Panama Canal is definitely a great experience! The time lapse shows it perfectly! My most memorable experience from Panama is a thunderstorm with so intensive rain that the droplets from it entered in our bridge. We also had almost no visibility and had to drop an anchor. This happened just before Gatun Locks (4:12).

What a coincidence. I just read an advertisement a few days ago about a cruise from California to florida, and I knew they had to go through the Panama canal. And I was thinking about how cool it would be to go through the Panama canal. And two days later, lo and behold, here is this video. I'm about to watch it now and enjoy a accelerated trip through the Panama canal from the Pacific Ocean to the gulf of mexico. How cool. After watching, I never realized how many open areas there were; I thought it was just a narrow straight canal all the way across. Interesting.

When I was a kid and a teen in the 90s and early 00s, my teachers only taught us that the Panama Canal was a cut they made in Panama so the ships don't have to go around South America, so they created a short cut. So all my life, I thought that it was just a cut, that they divided Panama and build a narrow river. Now I learned that is by levels, so they raise the sea levels.... Hard to explain, and more complicated than I thought.
