What The Future of Transportation Looks Like

Newly released transportation concepts promise to move us around at unheard of speeds and in ways our great-grandparents didn’t even dream about. Trace shows us the most amazing concepts and details the one most likely to actually be built.

    Put all the money into hyperloop tech, it can go over or maybe even under water, and probably eventually could go vertically (to space) aswell as the more immediately beneficial option of connecting cities in the same country way quicker, or even connecting the 4 sides of a city within a couple of minutes

    Think about this for One second… we say we understand if we went through the Earth from America we'd end up somewhere in China right. Well they have figured out an easier way to high speed travel then. A straight line good ol' geography, the fastest way to any location. And we already understand how exactly to protect things from extreme heat so they could simply design something to get us underneath ourselves.

    Is this a real type of possibility they are actually proposing. Haha would definitely be the End right now then. Because it would be a flat Earth shape I'm not old school at ALL, just understand this Earth is surrounded and separated from the Water of Heavens, we are under heaven And then their is another layer under us, and under that. Technology has already figured out advanced technology. A loooong time ago. Idk exactly why they lie, because Earth leaders are Evil and try to keep us from seeing our Father who loves us. And if it is space with no gravity, no, but even if it were God still created all you figure out with science. They are tearing down our house ruining our Earth not trying to advance it. They want us trapped here, evil ones do. All evil is fallen from heights that were greater than ours, now they are underneath us, but want to give us that understand it the impression they have power over us. It's simple they Don't. They are fallen underneath our feet. I'll go now I'm not explaining everything in an advanced article nah.

    False, in 1980 we thought that we would have flying cars by 2010 and here we are in 2017 eating potato chips on couches

    I had the idea of creating a space drive that would minipulate only the space time around the spacecraft with a powerful electromagnet field so the ship behaved like a tacion powered by a antimatter generator. The ship could go infinitely fast it just couldn't go slower than the speed of light.

    the hyperloop ideas been around since 1970s maybe earlier. this isn't new news aside from another company claiming they can do it.

    A rocket powered submarine will probably not exist because it's more complicated than just a rocket powered rocket

    I'm starting to think the hardest part of Trace's presentations is keeping a straight face as he delivers some bit of total nonsense to his audience! Yeah, we're going to build a giant 900 ton "space elevator" that travels straight up 22,000 miles into space. Lol! I have the perfect name for the first one they try to build: "The Tower By Babbling Idiots Who Have So Much Money They Don't Know What To Do With It!" Also, that "Hyperloop" project sounds a bit "loopy" to me. Yes, putting your high speed "maglev" train inside of an evacuated tunnel will help to boost its speed. But, it takes energy, a lot of energy, to exhaust the air from a tunnel tens of feet in diameter and hundreds of miles in length. In the event of a structural failure that caused the tunnel to implode from the enormous external air pressure acting on it, the shock wave traveling out from it would probably flatten buildings and kill people for miles around the tunnel. And what if something happened to the train and it got stuck in the tunnel or its pressurized passenger compartments were damaged and all of the air got sucked out of them. Even a minor amount of damage might kill all of the passengers!

    I think the immediate future of transportation will be all electric automobiles and planes, trains, and ships that are just more efficient versions of what we already have. However, as the science of gravity physics continues to advance, we may soon be able to duplicate the propulsion displayed by the many genuine ET UFOs being sighted in our planet's skies everyday almost. The builders of these craft have solved the problem of artificially reducing to zero the gravitational and inertial properties of an air/spacecraft and its crew. In such a massless state, it is possible to achieve velocities in the thousands and even tens of thousands of miles per hour while flying through the denser lower levels of our atmosphere. Such travel is very safe because, being massless, the crew of such a craft feels no inertial forces acting on their bodies no matter how rapid the accelerations the craft executes while airborne. I think we humans will, perhaps in the next few decades, finally have our own versions of these air / spacecraft for our own use.

    Too bad it won't work its too impractical hyper loop will not work and he didint invent it it's a 100 year old concept he just gave it a name
