Here’s the “Hyperloop,” Elon Musk’s grand idea for a mass-transit system that would get you from Los Angeles to San Francisco in just 35 minutes. It was inspired by his frustration with California’s high-speed rail system: “How could it be that the home of Silicon Valley and JPL—doing incredible things like indexing all the world’s knowledge and putting rovers on Mars—would build a bullet train that is both one of the most expensive per mile and one of the slowest in the world?” This tech-forward approach, which would be built alongside the already-existing freeway system, is just an idea right now, but there’s a lot of potential in this document for a deeper conversation, it seems.
