NEW DELHI: A map depicting the prospect of a direct maritime route from India to the United States has piqued the interest of the internet, including billionaire Elon Musk.
The image of the 2D route map, shared on X by the handle Epic Maps, depicts a direct sailing route between the two countries despite their huge geographical distance.
It is conceivable to sail from India to the United States in a straight line without touching any land,” according to the post.
While Musk and several other users were impressed by the image, some others questioned the map’s simplicity.
Some X users expressed concern that the line “is far from straight.”
Despite the fact that the line does not appear completely straight on a two-dimensional map, it should be noted that it appears straight when displayed on a globe.
As a result, “straight” implies that it follows a continuous course in one direction without diverting left or right.
