It has led to major arguments with my wife, family members & friends .
My argument is that theoretically this idea could actually work.
HOVER TRAVEL THEORY
This theory of travel uses the earths natural rotation to travel great distances without actually travelling anywhere. It goes like this. Imagine if we could hover or have some means of levitating up in the air. You’re standing outside in your backyard then all of a sudden you start to hover just above your house. Now you just wait hopefully with enough food & beverages for your journey. As you are hovering you start to notice that you are no longer hovering above your house, you are now over your neigbours house, after a few hours you are now hovering over the ocean. You’d be surprised at just how fast the earth actually rotates, (remember it does a full rotation in 24 hours). Your still hovering in the same spot, (it’s important that you do not move sideways) and watch as now you see a coastline and this means you are now in another country. You watch as the locals go about their daily business. You stop in, check it out and take a few photo’s. Then you go straight up into the air and hover again, pretty soon you’re back over the ocean, and then twenty four hours after you began you see your house and touch down and walk inside like nothing has happened.
So that’s my hover travel theory. That you could hover and let the earth move like it does everyday and you could visit numerous other countries that pass underneath as you travel. I am still working on the jetpack that will allow me to do this. I am going to base it on Jango & Boba Fett’s jetpack, as they look so cool.
Anyway let me know if you think this form of travel is possible?
