Intercontinental transport

Can you get from Madrid to New York? If we omit all visa requirements for all citizens of all countries, then today it is quite easy. To do this, just go to the website for the sale of air tickets and arrive at the airport at the right time and board the plane. Will this give you more pleasure than any other flight by plane from point A to point B? The main beauty that you will be able to see is only during takeoff and landing of the aircraft.

Imagine that you could travel by land from Madrid to New York. You would see an incredible number of the most beautiful contemplative views and landscapes that excite the imagination.

Along the way, you would see many cities, both similar and different from each other. Relatively few travelers have seen Siberia, which is the snow pearl of the planet Earth. Perhaps you have never seen the boundless snowy expanses and latitudes.

Such a trip would be comfortable, if we don't mean a car. Such a trip would take place in unique comfort if you were making this journey on a modern Maglev train that does not touch the surface of the rails. And this is probably the most environmentally friendly and safe public transport for long-distance trips. For such a train, much less energy costs are required, in comparison with airplanes and conventional trains.

Of course, it will take a lot of effort to implement such a large-scale project. How much effort is needed? Much less effort than extracting oil for useless fuel burning in traffic jams in millions of cities.

If a modern and safe tunnel had been built under the Bering Strait, then such a trip would have been a success.
Such a project, in today's economic terms, would significantly reduce the cost of shipping and transporting any cargo between continents.

The Bering Strait separates the two continents, but its length is only 96 km, and the maximum depth is 91 m. Humanity has the experience of building tunnels at greater depths and greater lengths.

By implementing such a project, humanity would be able to connect not only Eurasia with North America by land transport. It would be possible to connect even Africa with South America. How about an unforgettable trip from Cape Town to Buenos Aires?

What actions do you think should be taken today to implement these projects?
