Update on Hyperloop

Update:  High speed, maglev, in-vacuum transportation of people and cargo in relatively narrow pipes. People stacked in a recumbent style of seat.  Windowless, but perhaps with virtual reality displays.

Impressive and futuristic  effort, probably doable in the longer term. Though I wonder about drilling through mountains, earthquakes, security, maintaining near vacuums and more.

This is also most useful at scale for long trips, where the infrastructure needs will be enormous.  And in  the short term, the slower, but very adaptable, competition from self driving vehicles.  I do like the idea of adding cargo potential. Unlike the Mars trip, here I would readily take a test trip.  Invite me. Following.
