The so-called Trailblazer is an elevated, magnetized railway that can carry cars between major metropolitan cities at speeds of 250 mph without using any energy.
Thats because its creators claim the 54,000-mile system would be covered in solar panels that make hydrogen power enough to power the train and replace the 98 quadrillion BTUs of power the U.S. buys each year.
Jack Schulman, chairman of the American Computer Science Association, which has adopted the program, claims the Trailblazer would, among other things, solve the energy crisis and eliminate the need for gasoline.
Schulman claims the Trailblazer could break ground in six months, and while the $500 billion needed to build the system sounds high, he claims it would pay for itself almost immediately in the form of energy.
