Water Slides

The United Arab Emirates’ National Advisor Bureau just proposed an underwater bullet train to connect Mumbai, India with Fujairah. The 2,000 km journey would take two hours of exhilarating — or terrifying — underwater travel, Business Today reports.

A video published to YouTube last month by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) shows the project’s concept art, which involves a long tube floating just beneath the surface of the Arabian Sea, suspended and held in place by a network of floating rigs.

Some Precedent

An underwater bullet train sounds totally far-fetched at first — even the director of the National Advisor Bureau, Abdulla Alshehhi, said that it’s still just a concept that needs to be explored in upcoming feasibility studies. But it wouldn’t be the first underwater train out there.
