The Hyperloop

While hard at work today, I came across this lovely little proposal written by my buddy Elon Musk. In this he suggests an alternative to the rather disappointing mass transit rail system approved in California for connecting the cities of San Fran and LA.

In his 57 pg document, Musk starts with a very general popular science discussion of the problem at hand and his proposed solution. He then goes on to back up his suggestions with a number of diagrams and calculations (that are beyond may abilities to be at all critical about). There are, however, many people who do feel plenty qualified to take Musk’s proposal apart, throw it on the ground and stomp on it (or perhaps run it over with a train).

Do you think it could work? I have no idea, but I think it sounds AWESOME!
