China may build an undersea train to America

China's state-run Beijing Times claims the nation is already in discussions to build an 8,000+ mile railroad connecting China, Russia, Canada, and the U.S.—including a 125 mile undersea tunnel spanning the Bering Strait. Forget taking this with a grain of salt, you're gonna need the whole shaker.

Well, Alaska is known for earthquakes. I'm not sure how safe I'd feel being in an undersea tunnel that crosses any faultlines

In other news Russia is building a ladder to the moon, Britain is planning on building 30 foot high concrete walls around the coast to keep out immigrants and America is planning to rebuild their economy.

Of course it's not possible.

And it would not be safe.

not gonna happen. They talk about doing stuff like this decades ago. And nobody ends up doing anything.

I know it won't happen but i could see the tunnel being visible through eastern Siberia and cross the Bering Strait that's only 125 miles off rail line underwater before connecting with Alaska.

The Euro tunnel though no fault lines in site :) runs 50.5km under water and will take around two and a half hours to go threw.

China Have a long history off building structures that withstand earthquakes tbh. So though this is up in the air this idea i would not put it past them either. Just can't see it at the expanse shown in the diagram.
