Why China Syndrome?


Recommended Posts

What's the matter with you man?! Didn't you ever see the movie "The Core"? It's totally possible! Delroy Lindo proved it!


The Core ruled!


Pretty sure "digging to China" was a common Looney Tunes feature, too, and as we all know, those cartoons had documentary levels of factual accuracy.

Don't forget our hypothetical tunnel is twirling like a baton. And the trail will need to counter those g forces in a frictionless manner.


Someone once told me it would take either 17 minutes or 42 minutes (don't recall which) to get from any point to any other point if you fully utilize free-fall and eliminate air and tunnel friction. One heck of a claustrophobic mode of travel!
