A Day At DIA

DENVER - JUNE 12: The Jeppesen Terminal, named after aviation pioneer Elrey B. Jeppesen as seen at Denver International Airport (DIA) on June 12, 2006 in Denver, Colorado. Situated on 53 square miles, Denver International Airport is one of the largest airports in the world. The Jeppesen Terminal has over 1.2 million square feet of space and a total of 93 gates. The airport was designed to allow for the building of two more concourses which will raise the facilities capacity so it can serve 100 million passengers each year. The roof which simulates the state's Rocky Mountains is 210 feet tall and has an outer shell made of Teflon-coated woven fiber glass; the inner membrane is made of uncoated woven fiber glass. Ten percent of visible light passes through the roof fabric for daylighting and the fiber glass has little mass so it does not conduct heat or store it. (photo by David S. Holloway/Getty Images)
