Follow along with a team of CNN journalists as they spend 24 hours at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the world's busiest. They started at midnight ET Tuesday, August 27, and will end at 11:59 p.m. ET Wednesday, August 28. The resulting project will be published later this year.

What happens to all of the bags and cargo that travel with us on planes? Reporters Brandon Griggs (@GriggsBrandon), Todd Leopold (@tleopoldCNN) and Jamie Gumbrecht (@jamieg) are tracking all things related to luggage and cargo.
Reporters Moni Basu (@mbasuCNN), Catherine Shoichet (@CatherineCNN), Jessica Ravitz (@jravitzCNN) and Emanuella Grinberg (@grinsli) have been searching the airport to capture life moments and see what connections travelers make with one another. Emanuella also managed to capture some of the unique style of travelers. Here's some of what they've witnessed.
