Should Maglevs be Upgraded to Vactrains?

Should Maglevs be Upgraded to Vactrains Table

There has been a great deal of discussion of whether the future of high tech transportation will be maglevs or hyperloops. Hyperloops can theoretically travel around 600 mph. Maglevs can theoretically travel around 300 mph. However there is a third alternative that is being ignored. Theoretically if you build a vacuum tunnel around a maglev system then you create a vactrain and can achieve theoretical speeds of up to 8,000 mph. Vactrains could more or less ten times faster than hyperloops! China, Japan and Germany have already invested billions of dollars on maglev lines. Can maglev lines be retrofitted to be vactrains? Instead of replacing maglev, a proven technology, with a new technology that is only twice as fast, maglevs can be upgraded and be made 20 times faster! The following points provide a starting point for this discussion.

1) Pipeline Design

If maglev upgrade is the purpose of vactrain design then the pipeline probably needs to be designed to be more modular to fit around an existing maglev.

2) Pipeline Fabrication

China is facing an industrial output surplus. Can any existing factories be modified to make vactrain pipeline instead?

3) Pipelines and Solar Power

China is a major user of fossil fuels. China is also a major manufacturer of solar panels. Can pipeline be fitted with solar power panels in order to cut down on fossil fuel use and also provide a market for Chinese solar panels?

4) Pipelines as National Nervous System

The world faces growing terrorism, more extreme weather and nuclear proliferation. Can the pipeline double as a hardened nervous system of the nation?

5) Pipelines as Robotic Project

The next big space project will be a city on the moon. The next big rail project will be creating pipeline that can link continents via underwater pipeline. Humans are not designed to operate underwater or in a low gravity vacuum. The conquest of inner space via robots can be a precursor of the conquest of outer space with robots. Sooner or later robots will be needed to build in space on any sort of large scale. Building pipeline underwater with robots is a technical challenge that naturally leads to technological advances that prepare China to create megastructures in space.

A1 Sized Lamination in Bangkok

I wanted to laminate some HeroClix maps and I live in Thailand. Large sized lamination is very common in North East Asia and the US but finding a place in Thailand is not easy. Bangkok Blueprint can handle A1 sized (594 x 841 mm/23.4 x 33.1 in) lamination.

A1 sized Lamination in Bangkok 1

Bangkok Blueprint has several locations. This post is aimed at farang living in Thailand and all farang know where MBK is located. Take the BTS to the National Stadium BTS Station. Do not take the MBK exit but take the exit to Bangkok Art and Culture Centre. You can actually see the side of the Bangkok Blueprint building from the exit as the photos below show:

The office hours are in Thai only but seeing the office hour sign does let you know you are at the right office. Bangkok Blueprint is open M-F 8:30 am – 7 pm. Saturday 8:30-6 pm. Bangkok Blueprint is not open Sunday.

Again this article is aimed at farang like myself that live in Thailand and don’t know Thai. The Bangkok Blueprint has four other locations but you will need Thai to figure out where they are using their website but I am providing the link anyway:
