Tube-based vacuum transportation was conceptualized over years ago, as a means to achieve ultra-high-speed ground transportation and efficient inter-city travel. An early version was prototyped in by Boris Weinberg. The system is designed with the following objectives: • High-speed passenger transportation – greatly exceeding the speed capability of high-speed rail and conven- tional trains, and exceeding the speed of fossil-fuel-dependent airline jet flights. • High-frequency departures: passengers need not plan a trip long in advance.
