Smiley  Trans-Atlantic tunnel, eh?  Safe from plane crashes, but not terrorists.  And since the Atlantic is the most volcanically active place on earth, (not the more publicised Pacific Ring of Fire), I'm not sure I want to take a ride on that.  Think I'll stick to the plane, LOL. Cool

Hmm I never thought of that. LOL
Maybe something less pointless is better. A trans-continental mag-lev system would certainly be more traditional.
The whole mag-lev technology would be interesting to use for launching small aerodynamic pods. What velocity would be needed to escape Earth's gravity at a net weight of 167 lbs.? The "spiders" themselves could be made out the metal rubber which seems to adjust well to extremes. Hot, cold, and I'm guessing safe from radiation.
