Atomic-powered trains passengers from coast to coast in less than an hour through n transcontinental airtight tunnel may «e •possiJlc 20 or 30 years, a Johns Hopkins University chemistry professor predicted today. Dr. Donald H. Andrews, who figured in tile development ol atomic energy, said the clay will come when such a tunnel can be blasted through tile, earth's surface wllh an atomic tor gun." He listed only only two factors which he said now prevent an immediate start on the Buck Rogers project: 1— Development ol a disintegrator gun to direct the stream or atomic force. He said the problem is 'to develop a gun which ciui withstand the force it would direct. 2— Development of -A means to lUrK—iii our Hopkins laboratories. liul it " ll "'~ ''ocs not seem to me unreasonable whisking to predict that both problems will be solved within 2n to :io years."
