New Transportation Technology

Hello all,

By now i’m sure you know the worlds growing need for oil will soon be tremendous, and in no time this precious fossil fuel will soon run out.  This is exactly why large investment have been going towards alternative fuels, such as wind, and solar energy.  This week I stumbled upon a really innovative technology that could completely revolutionize the way we travel.  ET3 is essentially two long hollowed out tubes that can fit a small car (ET3 car) of people (1-6).  This hollow tube has all of the air removed from it so the car is weightless.  An electric motor quickly accelerates the car to speeds of 300 mph, and then shuts off allowing the car to glide through the weightless space at the speed accelerated to.

It’s not a train, it’s not a car, it’s ET3, and in my opinion we should stop investing in train technology and start moving towards a future where travel time for consumers and costs build are substantially reduced.

Please read the short article about ET3 by clicking the first link or watch the video by clicking the second link.  After, don’t forget take your quiz.

    Removing the air from the tube doesn’t eliminate gravity, so it doesn’t seem like the car could be weightless. I think we’re talking about reducing drag rather than weight.

    Good call on the gravity. I was obviously confused.
