This is the 6-mile journey your luggage takes to get on the plane


In "questions we never asked but are somehow still extremely glad we now have the answers to" news, The Smithsonian have created a video revealing the journey your luggage takes after you check it in at the airport.

Your bags apparently travel for a whopping six miles before they're shoved on the plane, and are automatically shepherded through scanners and over fancy little train-track-things.

Check out their whole journey in the video below.
