We can see on this animations the airplanes commercial flight everyday.

The main today trafic is still in US ans Europe but Eastern countries are growing and pull the aircraft market.

We can see also that during the second part of the night there are far fewer planes flying.

SpaceX is a privately owned company making a lot of headway into making travel into space easier, cheaper, and, honestly, cooler. They have two flights to the space station under their belts, and have very ambitious plans for the future. They’re testing a very old idea with a new type...

I've just returned from AAAI 2014, which was held in Quebec City, Canada. It was my first time submitting to, attending, or presenting at a AAAI, and I was very pleasantly surprised on many levels -- the strength of the program, the breadth of research topics covered, and the conference ...

The end of 2013 is approaching, and I realized I hadn't posted a single time this year. Starting a tenure-track job and having a baby apparently leave little time for blogging!  However, I do want to keep my blog somewhat active, so I figured I better make at least one post for this year...

You are right on both points. Perhaps the increased PhD production is even making the market temporarily better bc it can make hiring go up to meet the demand.
