Ok. I have a slight understanding of the principles of magnetic levitation in passenger trains, and I have an idea. If you took a MagLev train, placed it in a 5,000 Mile Long Tunnel, which is sealed to create a near-perfect vacuum, and use large quantities of power to propel it to 10,000 Miles per hour, wouldn't the greatest system of transportation be created? It would have thousands of features, and hundreds of back-up emergency systems in the event of de-pressurization, or power loss, or life support failure, etc. What would a comfortable, sustained acceleration level be, to propel the train to max. speed? Is this idea even theoretically possible?
