Thunderf00t follows up on his thoughts on the Hyperloop and whether or not this mode of transportation is viable.
All the problems of deep space travel, bought down to the surface of the planet, such that you can travel about the speed of a bullet within a couple of cm of a gun barrel.
Sadly almost no one in the main stream media assessed this stuff critically from a scientific/ engineering point of view. They just took them at their word when they said they could construct the completely untested large scale hyperloop for 1/10th the cost of a regular high speed rail connection. They took them at their word when they said it would only cost 20 bux, and take on 25 minutes.
In reality the engineering problems are probably insurmountable. It would be like proposing a floating roadway across the Mediterranean or something.
It’s ironic in many ways that so many people wanted to defend the hyperloop by claiming it was Elon Musks invention, and that hes a genius who invented rockets and electric cars. In reality, Elon Musk made it rich on software.
Hyperloop alpha document for anyone interested!
