The future of transportation that literally depicts “Space Travel on Earth” –that’s what ET3 (Evacuated Tube Transport Technologies). It’s definitely a new (but we can tell it’s an old concept) mode of transportation, clean, green, fast, comfortable, safe, faster and affordable. Learn how it will allow passenger or cargo travel from New York to Beijing in 2 hours, yes, after the break.
Here’s how the ET3 works:
Car sized passenger capsules travel in 1.5m (5′) diameter tubes on frictionless maglev. Air is permanently removed from the two-way tubes that are built along a travel route. Airlocks at stations allow transfer of capsules without admitting air. Linear electric motors accelerate the capsules, which then coast through the vacuum for the remainder of the trip using no additional power. Most of the energy is regenerated as the capsules slow down. ET3 can provide 50 times more transportation per kWh than electric cars or trains.Speed in initial ET3 systems is 600km/h (370 mph) for in state trips, and will be developed to 6,500 km/h (4,000 mph) for international travel that will allow passenger or cargo travel from New York to Beijing in 2 hours. ET3 is networked like freeways, except the capsules are automatically routed from origin to destination.
Unfortunately, so far as we mention above, this can be only “future” as we always see some great concept that haven’t made to implementation as reality holds it back locked on its blueprint where big industries of oil, airlines and auto purge it into imagination. However, we’ve seen movement for electric cars, as oil deposit have started to feel scarcity in supply, and yet, we can always dream for ET3 to push through, just cross your fingers tightly.
