We have travelled in the same way for well over a century. Our two ways of transportation: Airplanes and Trains, are either bad for the environment or simply too slow for the modern world.
However, in 2013 an alternative was proposed! The “Hyperloop Alpha” concept was revealed to the public. The hyperloop would be a high-speed transportation system utilizing near-vacuum tubes in which pressurized vehicles travel. The air resistance and friction would negligent, letting the vehicle travel in speeds of over 1200 km/h while still being energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and more convenient than flying.
