High-Speed Railroad Travel

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.

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.
