A viral map shared on X, showing the possibility of sailing to the US from India in a straight line, has won the attention of its head and billionaire Elon Musk. It has already won more than 6 million views on the platform and the map shows how the travel is possible without hitting any land! 

The picture was shared with the caption 'Without touching a single piece of land, it's possible to sail from India to the USA in a completely straight line,' Musk responded, 'Whoa.' 

That said, not everyone on the platform bought the map maker's idea and commented that it is far from a straight line. However, though not straight on two-dimensional maps, it's a straight line when drawn on globes. This means that the journey can be in one continuous direction.
