A tunnel built on the whim of a Victorian inventor under the Atlantic is at last 'linking' London and New York - using a giant electronic telescope

 

Deep beneath the Atlantic Ocean, forgotten for the best part of a century, lies a tunnel linking London and New York.

It was built on the whim of a Victorian inventor with the aim of linking two great cities and developing the kind of friendship that still exists today.

 

But bad fortune befell the venture - and the tunnel lay idle ever after. Until today, that is, when the project was rekindled with a modern twist.
