Japan’s Bullet Train’s New Address: Moon!

Japan Bullet train to moon

Imagine a future where you can travel between Earth and the Moon in a super-fast train! While it sounds like something out of science fiction, researchers in Japan have proposed an ambitious plan to make it a reality.


In 2022, a team at Kyoto University in Japan partnered with Kajima Construction to unveil a concept for an interplanetary transportation system. This system would include:

  • Hexatrack: A network of hexagon-shaped capsules linked together, inspired by the bullet train technology Japan is famous for.
  • The Glass: Rotating space habitats built on the Moon and Mars that would simulate Earth’s gravity through centrifugal force. This would help address health concerns associated with long-term stays in low-gravity environments.

While the idea is exciting, it’s important to remember that this is still in the early stages of development. Researchers estimate it could take up to a century to become a reality. There are many technological hurdles to overcome, such as developing materials that can withstand the harsh space environment and perfecting the artificial gravity technology.

This project is a great example of how far human ingenuity can take us. It pushes the boundaries of what’s possible and inspires us to think about the future of space exploration.

Current space travel uses rockets and capsules, and while these missions are expensive, they are happening today. We continue to learn more about space with every mission, laying the groundwork for future advancements.
