Elon Musk is claiming that he has “verbal approval” to build a hyperloop from NYC to DC (with stops in Philly and Baltimore). That would be super cool and I totally hope they try. His new “Boring Company” designed to bore tunnels would do the tunneling part.
Just call me a tiny bit skeptical on the “verbal approval” part.
I’m a big Elon Musk fan and I’d love to get to DC in 29 minutes (I don’t even like DC that much, but damn). I just suspect he’s underestimating the challenges of digging a tunnel across several states.
