I appear to be way ahead of you regarding the hyperloop transport system.  It will work. :tu:

In fact, no it doesn't. Such transport systems have been proposed for many years now and has been prominently featured in many a science fiction book. The question is when the technology is mature enough to realize the system without it being cost prohibitive, I.e., low cost, light composite materials with the strength required, high strength super conducting magnets, etc. It is really basic stuff.

We have also been cheating in other areas.  Just look how far we have come in the last 50 years.

Clearly you have no idea of how technology is developed, as otherwise you would have realized how ignorant that statement is. But why don't you give us some insight into what areas you think we have cheated in also?

BTW, did you notice we retired the Space Shuttles?

Uhm, yes. As was planned for many years.

It looks like we need a replacement.  Hmmmm............

Yes, and you are aware that they are currently developing the replacement, right?

Elon Musk revealed details of a new high speed train.

It goes 800 Miles Per Hour !

It's called the - Hyperloop -. The capsule travels in a vacuum.




Alien tech? wow wee. :td:

This is defo nothing new and I will tell you why.

When I was a kid, 40 years ago, my mum took me to the towns shoe shop to get shoes. The kids dept was downstairs. Id choose and she would pay the clerk downstairs, who didnt have a till. So, she/the clerk would put the receipt, and the money, in a small capsule, put it into what I guess was a tube.. and press a button.  Then there would be a whoosh and the capsule was gone.

When the clerk upstairs had stamped the receipt and added change, another whoosh was heard and the capsule arrived downstairs.

40 years ago.   So, how did that capsule get transported instantly above ground?  Think about it

Heck, my local grocery story (VONS) was still using that concept until they closed down a few years back.

Now I found what it was ...and it was started in the 19th century

so balls to your alien tech fantasy

Pneumatic tubes (or capsule pipelines; also known as Pneumatic Tube Transport or PTT) are systems in which cylindrical containers are propelled through a network of tubes by compressed air or by partial vacuum. They are used for transporting solid objects, as opposed to conventional pipelines, which transport fluids. Pneumatic tube networks gained great prominence in the late 19th and early 20th century for businesses or administrations that needed to transport small but urgent packages (such as mail or money) over relatively short distances (within a building, or, at most, within a city). Some of these systems grew to great complexity, but they were eventually superseded by more modern methods of communication and courier transport, and are now much rarer than before. However, in some settings, such as hospitals, they remain of great use, and have been extended and developed further technologically in recent decades.[1]

ET technology.

The ET technology allows the hyperloop system to actually operate safely at 4,000 Miles Per Hour.

ET3 is just adding a few extra bells & whistles.

It WILL work. :tu:

Understatement of the year.  4,000 Miles Per Hour?  So what???

Pssst......the SR-71 Blackbird only went 2,200 Miles Per Hour !

At that speed the windows got hot just traveling through the atmosphere that fast.

What you seem not to understand (even though it is VERY basic) is that the whole idea is to remove drag by having the carriages travel in vacuum. Do you even understand the concept at all? Frankly, you don't give that impression.

Yes, we got the basic concept back then.

However, if you wish travel faster than the speed of sound then you are going to need a little help in order

to do it safely.

Question: How many G-Force levels can you be comfortable with?

I have a hard time with a rollercoaster.  It doesn't go 4,000 Miles Per Hour!

You don't see any G-Force problems?

Speeding up from Zero.........then to 4,000 MPH.........then slowing to comfortable stop?

as this has nothing to do with the forum you have posted it in, Im not responding further. Im here for UFO/ET stories, not stuff that I saw and witnessed when I was a kid, in a shoe shop.

Frankly, no I do not. This is meant for long distance travel and not for going to see your mum 50 miles away. So you can easily accelerate without imposing any uncomfortable g-forces.
