This cool time lapse movie shows a passage of a tanker through the Panama Canal in 75 Seconds.

The Panama Canal Authority website states, “The history of the construction of the Panama Canal is the saga of human ingenuity and courage: years of sacrifice, crushing defeat, and final victory. Many gave their life in the effort. Follow the story from the early days of the French construction period, to the completion by the United States, and into the present time.”

More details of the history of this amazing creation can be found here. And of course there’s a Wikipedia article.
