Pneumatic tube to transport people?

Details are sketchy but some experts say this is likely the basis for Elon Musk’s new venture in transporting people.

Musk who is the co-founder of PayPal, SpaceX, and Tesla Motors is planning to announce a “fifth mode of transportation.”

According to this article in USA Today, Musk’s hyperloop “is a proposed “really rapid transit system” that he says will be able to get a passenger from San Francisco to Los Angeles in a half-hour. That would mean travel at 800 miles per hour, or about twice the speed of conventional aircraft.”

“Also, he says it will be impossible to crash, always available on demand, way less expensive than current travel options and, ideally, solar-powered.”

This will be interesting to watch! Stay tuned.
