The Hyperloop: LA to San Francisco in 30 Minutes

The real-life Tony Stark has done it again. Elon Musk, whose successful ventures include Pay Pal, Tesla, and SpaceX, revealed a very detailed plan for an 800 mph public transit system between San Francisco and Los Angeles. At those speeds, the 380 mile trip would take about 30 minutes compared to a 2 hour flight and between a 6 and 8 hour drive depending on traffic. The estimated costs of such a system would be between $6 billion and $8 billion and be twice as fast as California’s $70 billion high speed rail project currently under construction. Unfortunately, these blueprints were only that, blueprints. There is no plan on the part of Musk or the state of California to actually turn this into a reality. Still, I love big ideas like this. If in 1995 someone said that 15 years later most of America would have a pocket-sized computer that is faster than the fastest supercomputer in 1995, he would be laughed out of the room. But now such an idea is reality. The same thing goes with the hyperloop. This ambitious plan is doing what was previously thought to be impossible and would improve most of our lives. Now all we have to do is do it.
