Response to A HERETIC I AM (Reply #34)

35. Ok, I looked it up. There could still be vibration problems.

Probably solvable but since it's never been done who knows what the vibrations will do to deeply buried tunnels or tubes. Probably solvable but experimental ones have to be built and tried, just as high-speed aircraft have to be wind tunnel tested, build and test piloted to find out what problems develop to figure out how to fix them.

High speed rail may be an efficient way to get large numbers of people between two high-traffic destinations, but it does pose some problems. One is the recently-confirmed existence of "ground vibration booms." These are sonic booms that happen underground.

It's probably doable but will take years and a commitment much like the interstate highway development of the '50s.
