Did You Know What that Tiny Hole in the Airplane Window Does?

If you've ever had a window seat on a flight, you have probably noticed a tiny hole at the bottom of the window. Every single window of the plane has the same tiny hole and actually, it is a very important safety feature. Why is it so important? Air pressure drops as you get higher.
