In a world where messages are sent worldwide within a couple of seconds, wouldn’t it be nice to ride a high-speed railroad that can circumnavigate the globe in 2 hours? The drastic changes in scenery will be awe-inspiring and being able to traverse between continents in less than 30 minutes will be a huge practical advantage over other modes of transportation. The only other faster means of travel are supersonic jets and Elon Musk’s proposed plan of going from New York to Shanghai in 39 minutes.

Since coming back from Vancouver, this was one of the more spectacular sights I’ve seen. A jet split the sky in halves with its wing-tip vortices.
Day 9: Took the Amtrak and visited the Boeing factory. Obviously, aviation is my field of choice, but since they don’t allow phones and photo-taking, I can only remember and draw out every intricate detail later on.
This blog can’t claim to focus on aerospace news without talking about Elon Musk. I’ve watched some of his conferences on YouTube recently. He has a vision that no ordinary person has.
As the election for the United States presidency draws near, I can’t help but worry about Donald Trump having the potential of becoming the next president. As the president, you need to have a strong will to do what’s right.
You have to truly care about not only the American people, but humanity in general. Continue reading

In the future, should our Sun slowly burn out of fuel and supply us with sub-par sunlight, I have thought of a way to make Earth habitable. All we have to do is to redirect an increasing proportion of the Sun’s radiant heat to our planet at all times. This may sacrifice the other planets’ fair share of warmth, but since they’re uninhabited and since being hotter or colder wouldn’t significantly impact their orbits, this should only be a minor problem. Should there actually be aliens on Mars or Neptune, they’ll have to speak up.
Those of you planning for outer space travel in the future can opt for Neptune. Provided that our spacecraft are sophisticated to travel near the speed of light, Neptune sure has its own unique qualities to attract prospective travelers. Being the farthest planet from our Sun, it is also the densest of the 4 gas giants.
