Musk says government likes plan for high-speed tunnels


The White House said it has talked to Musk, but gave no indication of when the talks took place or whether any kind of approval was granted.

"To really get the public real fired up, I think we've got to have a base on the moon", the billionaire founder and CEO of SpaceX said today (July 19) at the 2017 International Space Station Research and Development (ISSR&D) conference in Washington, D.C. In April, the Boring Company posted a video offering a first look at the underground transportation system it's hoping to develop. Speed-wise, he claims this will cut a journey from NY to Washington, DC down to a mere 29 minutes.

Musk said that travelers would be able to use the underground tunnel to get from New York City to Washington, 29 minutes.

In 2013, Musk said a hyperloop between Los Angeles and San Francisco would cost less than $6 billion and would take 7-10 years for completion. In his tweet, Musk said the "hyperloop" will include stops in Philadelphia and Baltimore.

Exxon Says "Egregious" Sanctions Violations Were Just a Misunderstanding
The American oil giant was found to have conducted business with Igor Sechin , the head of the state-owned Rosneft in May 2014. On a trip to Kiev earlier this month, he said the sanctions would not be lifted until Russian Federation met its obligations.

Apparently, local officials in charge of the cities involved were not looped into the conversation; New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's press secretary tweeted that "this is news to City Hall".

He added that the system would ferry passengers from "city center to city center in each case, with up to a dozen or more entry/exit elevators in each city".

Either way, Musk's Boring Company will need more than a nod to build the high-speed transit system between two major cities.

A spokesman for The Boring Co. did not immediately respond to a request for details. "Then prob LA-SF and a TX loop".

Dennis Hastert out of federal prison
The Illinois Republican admitted to sexually abusing underage boys while he worked as a high school teacher and coach. Online records indicate Hastert is now under the supervision of a residential re-entry management office in Chicago.

SpaceX Chief Executive Elon Musk on Wednesday downplayed expectations for the upcoming demonstration flight of the company's giant Falcon Heavy rocket, saying there was a "good chance" the vehicle would not make it to orbit in its first launch.

An overview of the technology at Architectural Digest says Hyperloop pods will reach blazing speeds of up to 750 miles per hour, whisking passengers from city to city through near frictionless vacuum tubes.

Having lost his patience with legendary California traffic, Musk recently pledged to build a short tunnel from his office to the Los Angeles airport before building a network of tunnels throughout the city.
