A company called ET3 has plans for an  Evacuated Tube Transport, a high-speed transportation tube that uses magnetic levitation. The ETT can travel at speeds of up to 4,000 miles per hour, and each tube seats up to six people and a baggage compartment. How will it go so fast? It would be airless and frictionless and you could travel from New York to Los Angeles in 45 minutes, rather than the  five plus  hours a non-stop flight would take. You could travel from New York to in Beijing in two hours.

ET3 claims that passengers need not worry about feeling discomfort while traveling at such high speeds. The high velocity at which the tubes move is equal to 1G of force at top speed, which is similar to the force felt by someone traveling in a car on the freeway.  But what would it cost to build?  How much would it cost for a one way ticket?  Will it have a restroom?  Can you bring your engraved stones?  What if something goes wrong?
