First things first I have to say this thread has began hopping now and I like what I see so far.
Secondly. I just dove head first into this post with the thought of peering through the information just to see if there was anything new to anything
out there. I have to say that there is plenty of information out there.
Thirdly. I was impressed with some of the other people's posts here.
Fourth. I was totally shocked to have come back after contributing several posts here to find a U2U from Cuhail
awarding Me 500
Points for an "Applause"
for contributing to this thread specifically.
I know this is off the topic of the thread a bit but I wanted to say thanks for the applause and points.
Back to the original topic of the thread which is high-speed transit systems utilizing tunnels underground to go from New York to Los Angeles at a
purported 14000 miles per hour. I don't know specifically about that actual speed as the human body can only take so much pressure from the g-forces
that it would take to go this speed.
Someone do the computational mathematics of traveling 14000 miles per hour using the "Mach" system and definition of Wikipedia here and figure out
the formula which will tell us the exact amount of Mach you would have to be traveling to reach that speed :
Wikipedia : Mach
I know for a fact because I've talked to a fighter-pilot and watched enough of "Discovery Channel" and "History Channel" where a pilot usually
blacks out at around Mach 7 but this is also talking about using the g-force of a controlled turn mixed with a high speed and not specifically a
straight tunnel or a slightly curved tunnel system where the tunnel is sealed and or driven through a magnetic levitation engine.
