The Future Has Arrived with 'Evacuated Tube Transport'

For years, people have dreamed of the day when travelling in tubes was no longer a sci-fi fantasy. That day may be nearer than one may thinks thanks to 'Evacuated Tube Transport' by ET3.

This transportation system began as an idea in the 1980s and only recently has come into full force. Using airless vacuum tubes, these passenger cars travel at just over 4000mph and can carry up to six people. These tubes are not only fast, but the cost to build them is 1/10 of the cost to build a high-speed rail system. With these tubes across the globe, one could travel from New York to Los Angeles in just 45 minutes and from New York to China in just two hours. This invention only gets better because the price to travel in these tubes would be tremendously lower than any airplane or train.

If this idea becomes a reality, it could be the invention that defines an entire century.
