    Finding a seat on those rockets must be a nightmare- By the time you’ve got to an empty seat, the rocket will have reached the other side of the world. They probably have the same problem getting off. Or, they have enormous platforms.

  2. William A. Peterson says:

    Hey, I remember those articles in “Popular Science”!
    Don’t blame all that stuff on Kirby…

  3. Jeff Hebert says:

    Am I allowed to blame Kirby for the picture that says “Kirby” on it?

  4. Dan Gonzalez says:

    What kind of security checkpoints do you have to go through for that ride?

  5. Jeff Hebert says:

    The reason the trip is so fast is that by the time you get to the other side, the entire train and everything on it has been melted down into slag by passing through the Earth’s molten core.

    I like the “Mortal Kombat 2” movie’s version of that… Casually whizzing by the Earth’s core without breaking a sweat. Their kung-fu mojo is mo’ bettah.

    Not just geologically challenged, but geographically. Diametrically opposite from New York City would be somewhere in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

    I don’t care thart this is physically impossible — ‘Rule of Cool’ aplies here, so your argument is null and void! >:D

  9. Sarah says:

    Diddo on what Whit said, and it will be very tough to drill through the iron-nickel core with whatever we have today.

    Cool concept, though.

    You know if this was actually possible some jerk would try to B.A.S.E. jump it!

    And remember, not only do you take your asbestos suit when riding these rockets, but you gotta think cool. Really, really cool.

  12. C. Baize says:

    Not to mention the crushing crushing pressure.

    Somewhere in a school laboratory …

    “That’s it! The shortest distance between two points, my lad!”

    “But sir, isn’t the line created by those two points is bisected by molten death?”

    “Don’t pester me with details, I’m too brilliant to question!”
