    Any particular reason not to extend it to Australia? If you're thinking land connectivity, you can go down through Malaysia, turn east into Sumatra, Java, Timor, island hop into Papua and then go south across the Torres strait.

    Conversely, to do Europe-North America, you're either going across the Bering Strait from Russia into Alaska, or tunnelling hundreds of miles of rock under the Atlantic for each leg to go Norway-Faroe Islands-Iceland-Greenland-Canada.

    Anyway, my choices:
    42) Faster than the trains mentioned above, especially for really long-haul - space planes, as per the Skylon concept (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skylon_(spacecraft)).

    43) Hydrogen fuel cells replacing internal combustion engines, plus changing petrol filling stations to Hydrogen.

    44) Cybernetics.

    46) medicine plant. Produces products that invoke an immune response. Serves as a widescale edible vaccine.

    47) biological water clearer. Plant with extensive root network used in rural environments. Enjoys killing pathogens such as cholerae and amoeba.

    48) Everyoung pets. Cats and dogs and any other kind of variety. Altered to have different shedding and proteins to avoid allergic responses. Altered growth rates and metabolism to increase lifespan, reduce dietary requirements, and greatly reduce production of fecal matter. Is more affectionate and intelligent.
