Have you ever thought if we lost some amazing technological advancements to time?
There is a strong belief that, we have had more amazing technology back then (may be few era’s back), we have lost all in time and trying to re-discover it. For instance, airplane, space crafts, ability to travel between various planets in galaxy or travelling to desired location within a split second, nuclear technology for better or worse, transforming physical body into anything one wishes, cloning 100 kids from one fetus of an human and those face time chats back in that era. I am quoting all these from “so called” Mythological history of ancient India – Mahabharata and Ramayana.
For instance, researchers are still trying to find the bridge that was constructed between Srilanka and India during ‘Ramayana’ Era to get Sita who is Lord Rama’s wife been abducted by Devil Ravana and kept in an island “Lanka”. It could be true they might have had it but due to Pangaea it might have shrunken with this small island started drifting apart and India is moving up towards north increasing the height of highest mountain Mount Everest in Himalayas.
Since there is very little evidence of such great epic, it is hard to convince people. This creativity is more or less can be compared to Star Wars movies. They call it all an exaggeration but truly, when Wright Brothers initially expressed their intentions to construct a flight to fly in the air, they were only laughed at that concept. Now, after more than 100 years of their initial experimentation, we have come so far as to.. not only we could travel practically anywhere on the earth but also to nearest Planets. Such is the Innovation. As we speak about it, they recently posted another idea of high speed transportation from NY to LA, 3000 miles apart would take just 45 minutes only (current flight time is 6 hrs).. This still is in Conceptual stage but I believe it could be a reality one day.
Elon Musk, founder of Tesla Motors, Paypal and SpaceX products, his idea of travelling from New York to Los Angeles (approx. 3000 miles apart) in just 45 minutes (yes, yes.. you heard it right) has been featured in CNN (Click here) and ever since it only increased my curiosity. I wish if I understood dynamics behind this concept.. unfortunately, I was not even remotely decent with physics.
Brief excerpt from CNN: A massive vacuum tube — mounted either above ground or even under water — would be combined with a magnetic levitation system used on conventional bullet trains. That means no friction, no wind resistance, no chance of collisions, and insanely high speeds.
Here is Elon Musk for you to view.
