How Automobiles Work

This is the speed of a car. And this… …is tube travel. It’s amazing how transportation has evolved. We’ve shown innovation and courage. We’ve pushed for higher speeds at a lower cost. And we’ve never stopped dreaming, It’s time to take the next major step in
transportation. It’s time to connect the world. The concept of tube travel, also known as
vactrains, has enormous potential. With this channel, I want to help the world
realize that potential. Tube travel cannot happen until we start talking
about it. That’s why my goal is to get people excited
about this concept and to show that it’s not only feasible, but revolutionary. This mode of transportation would be safe,
reliable, clean, cheap, and fast. It will bring us closer to other cultures, helping us to further understand and appreciate our differences. So what the heck is tube travel anyway? The simple answer is moving things through
a tube. By removing all of the air in the tube, you
can eliminate drag. Then, if you lift the vehicle with magnets
instead of wheels, you can prevent rolling friction. Finally, add some more magnets to speed up
and slow down the vehicle. So the three main elements of tube travel
are: vacuum, levitation, and propulsion So why should this matter to you? Think of a place that’s about 2 hours away
by car. It’s too close to take a plane, so unfortunately
you’re stuck driving. Now imagine making that trip in 10 or 15 minutes
with no bumps and for a fraction of the cost. Next, think of the last time you flew in a
plane. How early did you have to arrive so that you
wouldn’t miss your flight? With tube travel, pods would leave about every
30 seconds, so instead of waiting for your transportation,
you’re transportation is waiting for you. Luckily, we’ve already mastered two of the
main elements of tube travel with maglev trains. These main elements are levitation and propulsion. This is the test track for the Japanese maglev
train, which is scheduled to be completed in 2027. It has achieved a top speed of 374 miles per
hour, and it will eventually cut a 5 hour car trip
down to about 40 minutes. Still, maglev has its limits. Air resistance, or drag, increases with the
square of velocity. That means a train that travels twice as fast
will use 4 times as much energy. At about 700 mph, which is just under the
speed of sound, drag would become even higher because of shock waves. By putting a maglev system in a vacuum tube,
these speed limits would disappear. Sounds easy, right? Wrong! Vactrains have a lot of promise, but if they
were easy to build, we would have done it already. I think we’re close, but there are problems
that we still have to solve. We’ve got work to do, and
we need to innovate. That brings me to this man, Elon Musk. A few years ago, he introduced the concept
of the Hyperloop. Since he was so busy with SpaceX and Tesla,
he challenged others to take on the task. Hyperloop is a version of tube travel that
has since been adopted by several companies, including Hyperloop One and Hyperloop Transportation
Technologies. The hyperloop concept has helped fuel the
movement for tube travel. And speaking of fuel, vactrains don’t need
any. Vactrains don’t use much electricity because
they have no losses from drag or friction. They would be, hands down, the cleanest form
of transportation, even beating out electric cars. But with anything this great, people are bound
to ask, “what’s the catch?” There are a lot of skeptics out there, who are completely convinced that this idea is impossible. That’s why I plan to explore every aspect
of tube travel to decide, with your help, if the world is ready. So if you want to help, I’d encourage you
to start reading and start discussing. Tube travel is not a one-man job, and it’s
not a one-company job. It’s a movement. So tell your family, tell your friends, tell
your dog. If you want to start a dialogue now or contribute

and I hope to see you next time on Tube Travel.

  1. A great presentation of the "Future of Transportation" It explained it, so that I could understand it. Thank You.

  2. tube travel won't happen until we spend alot of tax dollars until we realize it's technically unfeasable, unsafe and it's too fussy.

  3. Too expensive and dangerous and unfullfilling. Nobody will ride this crap, and nobody will invest in it. Its a dated idea, and failed before it began
