This writing has been composed to present the idea of forming a network of land-based (Terra) and ocean-based (Aqua) Bypass Stations that are interconnected by an advanced tube transport system.

Some assumptions are made herein and shall be substantiated by a feasibility studies. It is believed that the overall Aqua=Terra TWINS projects will yield national and international economic prosperity during construction and long thereafter since this transport system will take time to complete and maintain to some degree.

Based on current tube transport technology, we will be able to establish a single standard infrastructure and transportation system that will connect networks of Bypass Stations. This is only possible by forming this single standard operating system, similar to and the basis of success of the internet. Thus, combining the Bypass Stations with a single standard operating transportation system becomes like the internet accept that this is a transportation-based infrastructure system and not a electronic infrastructure system as is the internet.

In short, this innovative advanced infrastructure and transportation system combines an airless (vacuum) tube environment within which a capsule / vehicle is levitated by magnets (maglev) while transporting cargo and persons at hyper speed velocity 370-4,000+ mph. Two sets of transport tubes, cargo and passenger, are designed for this system with both contained within a containment tube system for servicing and emergencies.

The vacuum that is within the tube-link network duplicates outer space conditions and thus, no friction when the containers travel within the tubes. The electro magnetic aspect allows the cylinder containers / capsules not to touch anything and thus, basically flies through the tube network as if in outer space and why this transport system has the capacity of such great speeds reaching thousands of miles per hour.

We are currently proposing various applications of this tube transport system to many nations and regions. For example, we are proposing a USA TWINS project whereby Terra Bypass Stations are to be established at each US State Capitol including Washington DC and all linked by a tube-link network connecting all and forming a true United States. For California, we are proposing a California TWINS projects whereby a central north/south corridor / spine system is established and linked to each County where one Bypass Station or smaller T-Portal Station is established, depending on population data.

Other project ideas being proposed include the establishment of an off-shore floating Port that is floated out to sea in international waters to accept incoming cargo and other vessels for unloading and transport to the shore warehouse locations that are currently docs. Needless to say, the economic and environmental advantages are numerous.

In terms of the economic prosperity aspect of this project, these Aqua=Terra projects address many issues dealing with the economics within each nation down to the individual. As we are all aware, the current state of national and international economies is weak at best and with no real solution being yet presented.

However, these Aqua=Terra TWINS projects do provide a viable solution by providing an environment where education of and employment of individuals will bring forth demand in many areas from working consumers. The most recent statistics in regards to the annual global trade activity in the transportation industry is at approximately $8.65 trillion, approximately 50% passenger and 50% cargo and this does not include losses incurred from environment5al damages, etc.

Other issues that require our attention include regional and the global climate changes and other possible cataclysms like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, waters rising, and also space originating projectiles like asteroids, comets, and whatever, all of which has and continues to occur on this planet that we inhabit. For this, we have done nothing yet and need to consider this option sooner than later.

In short, the only logical solution to raising the living standards and economic condition or persons and nations is to build something that employs people and is economically productive for the very long term. The Aqua=Terra TWINS and related projects begins with commitments from governments (local to national) allowing the construction of the proposed tube transport system.

The Terra Bypass Station locations will first be used as staging areas to assemble and prepare the installation of tubes and other components, based on a predetermined map schematic, engineering reports, etc. for the particular project. Once an entire infrastructure and transport system is completed, the Terra stations may then be enhanced by building within the Station a technological center and other productive real estate related ventures that would likely include facilities for commerce, business, housing, resort living, etc., all subject to costs and desires to establish these stations as self-sufficient and contained environments.

Thus, it is suggested that the proposed location for the entire planetary tube transport system network be established first in regions and nations and then expanded to eventually connect to the oceanic twelve Aqua Bypass Stations network that is illustration by the global map herewith.

The technological related information in regards to the base technology as presented by the RAND Corp may be viewed at Very High Speed Transit (VHST) and more recently by ET3 TM (
