Elon Musk Wants to Dig a Huge Tunnel Under Los Angeles
Musk’s ideas tend to be big. Despite persistent questions about feasibility, he’s pushing his Hyperloop transportation concept along. Over the weekend, student teams from around the world gathered at SpaceX in California for the Hyperloop Pod Competition.
For this year’s competition, only three Hyperloop teams had pod prototypes strong enough to try out on the track, Business Insider reported. The Delft University of Technology team placed first with a lightweight carbon fiber pod prototype that the team thinks could be scaled up easily. Building Hyperloop tunnels could require creating deep tunnels insanely fast.
