What If You Dig a Tunnel Under the Ocean?

What If You Dig a Tunnel Under the Ocean?

It takes approximately 8 hours and 15 minutes to get from London to New York by plane. If you choose to take a trip by ship, you’ll spend almost a week in the ocean. But what about traveling a distance of 3,460 miles within an hour? Yup, a new type of transportation might appear in the world!

Futuristically fast trains that resemble transport capsules from sci-fi movies are supposed to move through low-pressure tunnels. Researchers from the USA and China are already working on this project. Some specialist are as optimistic as to predict the appearance of this new revolutionary type of transport in the next 10 years!

SUMMARY:
– American engineer Robert Goddard created several prototypes of a vacuum train that could connect the biggest American cities. Since then, a lot of designers have been working on the implementation of this idea.
– According to Ernst G. Frankel, shipping expert and professor emeritus from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, such a vacuum tube may give us the advantage of high speeds.
– There must be huge pumps, approximately 30 miles apart, to help keep a near vacuum in the tunnel. The air leak would happen through the end stations.
– However, there’s something that could make this type of transportation even faster: the combination of the vacuum train with another technology, for example, magnetic levitation.
– If you went for the first option, you’d have to drill the rock of the ocean floor. But the Atlantic Ocean is incredibly deep, and its average depth reaches 12,000 ft. You can imagine how huge the water pressure is at the bottom!
– The other way to build the tunnel is to leave it floating in the water. On the positive side, you wouldn’t have to dig through thousands of miles of hard rock. Thus, this would take much less time.
– There is an option of building a tunnel that would lie on the ocean floor. But this alternative doesn’t eliminate all the problems of the tunnel construction such as huge water pressure, big depths, and the difference of these depths.
– Whatever method of tunnel construction we choose, the biggest problem remains unsolved: the incredible cost of the tunnel. The total sum needed to finish the construction of the tunnel could hit $12 trillion!

    Who’s your bias in bts min kookie <3

  2. saggychicken on February 28, 2023 at 6:07 am

    then do it above water like 500 ft

    Cooool

    I would choose a plane not telaport.

  5. Kamil A on February 28, 2023 at 6:09 am

    I would use the tunnel but it’s not build

    Who says there aren’t currently tunnels under the ocean? Anything is possible.

  8. The OMG on February 28, 2023 at 6:11 am

    We can make a tunnel in land and place it in water and drill to the tunnel through land and continue making the tunnel

    Pls , music in the background is too loud and it can make brain damage

    I don’t know where to start with the stupitity of this idea. They can’t even do this above ground.

  11. Ms. B.B.U.P. Perera - University of Kelaniya on February 28, 2023 at 6:18 am

    But an airplane is the best choice to travel from Europe to USA.

    Why not making a tube that would float on top of the water

  14. Aarivsharma-3G-Roll No. 1 on February 28, 2023 at 6:22 am

    underwater we can get 10000000000+1000000+ 12

    did Dr Ferkel happen to mention plate tectonics and how they move? if a tunnel was started on both sides with plans to meet in the middle 111 years later, the tunnels would most probably be a few inches off… and even if this were accounted for, very little could be done as plates shift once construction is complete. all of the steel & concrete is not going to stop Earth’s plates from shifting, thus misaligning parts of the tunnel. traffic would have to be halted for weeks (if not months or years) every decade or two in order to correct for these shifts and prevent air leaks.

    this does not even account for the possibility of underwater earthquakes. there is almost constant seismic activity on the floor of the that Atlantic & Pacific oceans as the plates move a little faster than expected.

    So trains would have to have an onboard air supply then.

  20. Divya Gagrai on February 28, 2023 at 6:31 am

    Maybe teleporting is the fastest way

    you can use the glass from the cybertruck

  24. drakegod84 on February 28, 2023 at 6:32 am

    I don’t know about you guys but underwater tunnels sounds like a terrible idea all around no matter what technology you throw at the project.

    I have an idea that you might like what about a tunnel above water

    Biggest problem, you’d have to get all the materials and labor from China because you know America can’t produce anything on its own. Plus? Biden would need to line his pockets as well.

    brazil to liberia/Guinea (narrowest transatlantic point over there) 3000km(which means 3Hours by hyperloop once it will reach its maximum speed excpected from esteems over an already inclining speed(it reached already faster than the fastest train) ……

    Seems that for some engineers, the Atlantic is just a huge river and the Pacific is just a huge lake.

    It’s like watching a video made for kindergartner or smt. What’s with this awful music?

  48. Vaibhav Vutukuri on February 28, 2023 at 7:01 am

    topic is nice, but please decrease the sound of background music it’s too noisy.

  49. BRIGHT SIDE on February 28, 2023 at 7:03 am

    If there was a tunnel under the ocean, what would be your biggest fear before going there?

  50. MAHENDRAN RAJALAKSHMI on February 28, 2023 at 7:03 am

    Flight service is better and since we are in the phase of getting advancement in technology now and then, we can achieve faster and safest journey by flight.
