    It depends on the distance, but for long distance it is the plane you should go with.

    i'll tell you why i'm asking this. my long term goal is to build a railway from my country to the USA(americas), England(europe), and china(asia) across the oceans, in hopes of making transportation faster and cheaper....

    saura, you're thinking of displacement... in physics land that would be true but distance can be calculated using calculus of hills and such

    the depth of the ocean to hold the tracks? or the material to be used to build the tracks? certainly people have done crazier things :) i hope to join that club someday
