Dear American Airlines.
I want to give you an idea that could have a bigger impact on the country than President Eisenhower's Interstate Highway System. I think this idea is a perfect match with American Airline's Mission.
First, AA is in the transportation business; it's not just in the airline business.
My concept is to bore large tunnels between distant cities and harness the free energy of gravity to power the transportation of tubular shaped vehicles.
Over long distances, a straight line between New York and Los Angeles, for example, would mean that the tunnel entrance starting in New York would be on a downhill trajectory because of the curvature of the earth.
Gravity would pull the vehicle at ever increasing speeds to the mid-point of the journey. In the hypothetical New York to LA tunnel, I calculate that the vessel would be at its fastest speed going 423 MPH exactly 215 miles below Kansas City, MO.
At that point, it would start its uphill ascent into Los Angeles and gravity would slowly decrease the vehicle's speed to zero when it arrives in Los Angeles.
This would be a perfectly balanced, energy neutral, transportation system that uses the free power derived from gravity.
There are some details that need to be worked out and I know your engineers can do that.
I'm not asking to be paid for my idea. I feel it's my patriotic duty to pass this concept along to you to help us reduce fossil fuel usage.
God Bless America.
