129 Norway's Floating Highway

The Coastal Highway Route E39-project is the largest infrastructure project in modern Norwegian history, and quite possibly the largest on-going road project worldwide. The almost 700-mile trip currently runs 21hours with an average speed of 30 MPH. The floating tunnel will change that to around 10 hours.

128 Transcontinental Railroad

Before the transcontinental railroad was completed, travel overland by stagecoach cost $1,000, took five or six months, and involved crossing rugged mountains and arid desert. The transcontinental railroad would make it possible to complete the trip in five days at a cost of $150 for a first-class sleeper.

127 Satellite Mega-Constellations

Satellite services fundamentally shape telecommunication, navigation, and remote sensing services that are vital to the global economy. The current system is on the risk of collapse due to implementation of new tech like phones, etc. Constellations offer new levels of versatility. Smaller, cheaper satellites—some just the size of a briefcase—can be arranged in different configurations depending on their goal.

126 War Rationing
