Zereous Excentris: MagnoTube (Faster Transit) (SlipStream Delivery Services)
Powered electromagnets in the tube (+++++)
UnPowered electromagnets in the tube (----------)
The Vehicle has Electromagnets on it that are powered in a special way.
The Tube has all electromagnets with all south ends of the magnets pointing in words all around the vehicle inside the tube.
The Vehicle has electromagnets placed at 8 different angles to keep it center in the tube.
The electromagnet set on top of the vehicle can push down on the electromagnets on the bottom of the Tube and pull up on the magnets at the top of the tube.
The other electromagnets on the vehicle keep it nice and center.
The tube is decompressed all the air is sucked out of it.
The tube then has a disk that presses the remaining air that is not decompressed out to the end of the tube and is decompressed out itself.
It is frictionless inside the tube allowing the vehicle to travel through the tube at high speeds from city to city very quick and never slow down..
these things us gravity to go and then stops by gravity.. Ezpk
goes down levels out goes straight angles up slowly and then goes up and then stops in a special tube and rises a little to the city not much energy at all
It costs more at first then pays for itself..
the tube is oval shaped and keeps the vehicle from spinning this way..
Zereous Excentris: All My Technology.. It Might be a bit hard to hear me in the Videos.. I can hear them just fine usualy
Take the link below and stick it into your web browser and watch the videos
There are Super Computers and other Ideas such as Space Travel and ways to get to other Solar Systems and such in there and little things.. and Me wrathing against Corperation in here
Corwin: You'd be pretty hard pressed to develop and implement new technologies without corporations to fund them. Do you really think people would build things like supercomputers if there wasn't profit to be made in the endeavor?
Zereous Excentris: and if everyone stoped relying on money the world would be a better place.. could think of a new way..
Corwin: Trains create a lot of profit for a lot of corporations before it ever hits the tracks. Corporations like Bombardier make profit building trains and selling them to railroads companies like CN and Via Rail. Corporations like Westinghouse, General Electric, Cummings, and Pratt & Whitney make profit building components like turbine engines and motors and generators and selling them to Bombardier to build the trains.
Railway companies profit because railways are efficient and inexpensive to operate and maintain.
Saying that your electromagnetic vacuum tube transit system makes railroads obsolete is quite a boast indeed. Just because your idea sounds high-tech and futuristic does NOT mean that it is a better idea. It would also have to be economically feasible.
Something more technologically advanced does not render less advanced technology obsolete unless it can be proven to be more practical and efficient.
How much do you think it would cost to install your MagnoTube infrastructure from say L.A. to New York? That's about 5000 kms. Those tubes would have to be of extremely sturdy construction to not be crushed by the outside pressure if they contained a vacuum... and be airtight... and be lined with powerful electromagnets ever meter of the way??
And all a train needs is steel tracks that just sit there and be tracks, and cost next to nothing in comparison to what your tubes would cost. And all they need to power is the train, not the 5000 km of tracks.
If the money saved by reducing friction and air resistance doesn't offset the cost of your tubes, then the idea is a fail... unless you're going to charge 1 million bucks to send a shipment of string beans to Utah.
As it is now, I can buy fresh produce from Mexico cheaper than the stuff grown locally right here in Canada... and do you know why? Because rail transit is efficient and cheap.
Corwin: Here's something to consider...
We have something similar to your idea operating right now... it's called the Large Hadron Collider (a particle accelerator to study subatomic Physics ). It uses a tube containing a vacuum lined with electromagnets to hurl hydrogen nuclei 27 kilometers... and it's the most complex and expensive machine ever conceived by Mankind.
I doubt that hurling freight thousands of kilometers using the same method would come cheap.
Corwin: Remember the Concorde?
When I was a kid, it was thought to be the air travel of the future - very high-tech compared to regular jet liners... a slick pretty thing to look at... beautiful, really. A passenger jet that cruises at Mach2, and gets you from New York to Paris in a fraction of the time... brilliant.
Do you know why we don't have them anymore? Because even at $3000 a ticket, the airline was losing money on them. Mach2 doesn't come cheap; it eats fuel at a fantastic rate. The jet's narrow cross section to reduce drag made the interior cramped. It was loud. It was expensive to maintain that level of technology and keep it safe.
The Concorde was a fail.
It was beautiful... it was futuristic... it was technologically advanced... and it was a fail.
Zereous Excentris: the thing goes so fast.. and electromagnets holding it there is easy.. + I have Superconductors anyways so if its that expensive i can just throw that in easy... and then it works fine
Zereous Excentris: They use an Electromagnetic lifter at a junk yard to sift steel from aluminum all day.. and that thing operates all day ware as this thing will get you to ware you are going faster then.. anything on earth.. Its Frictionless.. You can go the speed of light... Almost... if the tube was long enough and you dropped from gravity long enough but it does not even have to go that fast..
You would be going 10.000 KPH or more
Zereous Excentris: You could use the Hadron Collider tactic to speed up the vehicle I guess... even though its unnecessary.... UNLESS YOU WANT TO LAUNCH SOMETHING INTO ORBIT.. HEH..
Man the package would be Huge tooooo...
Zereous Excentris: only problem with that is airing up the tube and it catching on fire.. but hmmm.. I will have to figure that one out I suppose
Corwin: I totally understand the concept of what you are proposing.
And now that you mention gravity in the equation, I'm reminded of an idea proposed some years ago (purely speculative) similar to yours (I forget who it was ), that if you could build a tunnel directly through the Earth, and create a vacuum in it, with magnetically repulsive sides to be frictionless and keep the payload on track, and dropped your payload into it... it would continue to speed up until it reached the center of the Earth, and then continue to slow down as it reached the other side. It would end up coming to a stop at sea-level on the other side of the Earth in just a couple of hours.
A neat idea that looks great on paper, but the logistics of such a project would be impossible with our present state of technology. Good sci-fi stuff though.
Corwin: The "through the Earth" idea was to fully utilize the Earth's gravity and end up on the other side in the shortest time.
Zereous Excentris: now are you saying this planet is Incapable of building this? its so Easy to Me.. Its magnets and.. All Kinds of things
Zereous Excentris: Hehehehehe We always wonder why aliens wont come and give us super tech and now corvin knows why.. Even though I knew Humanity can do it..
Corwin: Well... what may be possible in the future is anybody's guess... but our technology is limited at the present... and even the things we "could" build are limited by how much resources we can expend.
We could have put a man on Mars 25 yeas ago... but we didn't want to flip the bill.
Zereous Excentris: Hahaha Humanitys Greatest weakness steps in.. Descension.. and Money..
We have the Technology.. Money is just telling you no.. and we have the Resources..
Corwin: Oh hey... I just want you to know that I like you, Zereon, and it's not my intention to just poo poo on your ideas... but I will be "devil's advocate" and honestly point out the flaws that I see in them... "practicality" is something that I keep in mind, while you engage in flights of fancy.
But your flights of fancy are a good thing in my book, and I whole-heartedly encourage you to continue this.
Zereous Excentris: Time to stop taking steps humanity its time to take a leap I guess and i guess its super difficult for you...
Corwin: I share your desire to see Humanity do greater things... I'm an avid Science Fiction reader, and I also love to imagine the "what ifs".
And it pains me to watch Humanity spinning our wheels, wasting so much time and resources fighting amongst ourselves and waging wars, when we could be joining together and accomplishing so many great things.
Zereous Excentris: Yeah Like a Space elivator Or getting over money.. People Believe money is Ascension to greater and yet here it is holding us back and that is Descension.. War is Descension as well..
