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.

Well, you appear to be failing.

Where is Phantasia?  She could help bail you out.

I guess she is on summer vacation.  Disneyworld?

Anyway, keep a close eye on the ET3 website.  This company is the new Facebook!

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.

If you want this thing to go 4,000 Miles Per Hour, they better install an - Inertia Dampening System -.

If you watch this company closely, you will see them do a quick switch.

MAG- LEV will be removed and replaced with GRAV - LEV.

It's 1,000 times better, smaller and cheaper. WIN - WIN - WIN Scenario!

Shareholders shall rejoice!

They are saying that the multi - tube hyperloop will be installed between the lanes on Interstate 40.  That should expedite the 1st installation.

That makes even less sense.  Would the train be for all the folks that want to go from Barstow to Flagstaff?  It would be a two hour drive from LA just to get the train - I could be halfway to Chicago or pretty much anywhere on the west coast in that amount of time by jet.

I read yesterday that the turning radius on one of these things would be about 40 miles - take a look at I-40, not exactly a straight shot.

Not to mention, the amount of energy required to maintain a vacuum along the length of the tube.  And what about safety.  Passengers cant' exactly evacuate into an airless environment.

Yes, that's it! Flagstaff ------------------------------Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

It could be used for movement of services and goods.

We would still need the 18 Wheelers at the end of the run . Deliver goods the last mile.

The incredible speed is just a bonus.

Once you get to Flagstaff,AZ, then stop and shoot the transport to Scottsdale,AZ.

Once we get the bugs worked out then shoot the hyperloop everywhere.

Name calling? I simply posted a picture.

Now, tell me a little more about the Lake you found on Mars, pls?   Then when you do, explain why I should ever consider you  smart  enough to take your posts seriously?

They have MAG-LEV trains in Japan.  They work but GRAV-LEV is much better.

We have been dragging our feet on purpose.  This hyperloop is the correct step forward.

Welcome to August 2013 !  We finally made it.

You try and maintain a vacuum in a tube that size over several hundred miles and tell me "no fuel is consumed"

Not exactly.

How so? The idea has been there for many years, lets see it implemented before we call it a step forward, shall we?

It's easy to make the value proposition when you look at the diesel fuel consumed by 18 wheelers.

The trucks are also very slow ....60 MPH.

Elon already explained that the vacuum aux equipment will be powered by solar panels that are on top

of the tube system.  - That could work! -

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

My local hospital and they still use that technology.  When blood samples for testing are taken from a patient, the doc puts it in a receptacle with instructions for the tests to be done, puts it into a vacuum tube and it whooshes all the way to the laboratory (which is in a different building) for the lab technicians there to do the tests.

I worked in the IT dept. of that hospital and our offices were right above the lab, we were always down there because they had a printer that was always getting jammed.  When you were there, every few minutes there'd be a 'thunk' as a new sample arrived for testing.

Yes, that system works but if you want to go 4,000 Miles Per Hour then you need to install a few more bells & whistles

to make the ride fun & safe. :tu:

It shouldn't be a problem.  This exact same system is already being used on other planets.

We are just copying them.

4000 miles an hour?  

So, I spose all the ticket buyers will willingly wear anti g force pressure suits too? Or will they need to own one before travel? OH...the train guys will let them borrow one will they?  so that rules out all but the fittest for travel, doesn't it?


A g-suit, or the more accurately named anti-g suit, is a flight suit worn by aviators and astronauts who are subject to high levels of acceleration force (g). It is designed to prevent a black-out and g-LOC (g-induced Loss Of Consciousness) caused by the blood pooling in the lower part of the body when under acceleration, thus depriving the brain of blood.[1] Black-out and g-LOC has caused a number of fatal aircraft accidents.[2]
