Elon Musk and the Boring Company

UPDATE (7/12/17):

Elon Musk makes transportation news again.  (Note:  We don’t count Tesla under transportation.   It is a demonstration of battery power for the future.)  The Hyperloop lets us imagine true long distance rapid transit, moving sci fi to reality, letting us speed across the planet’s surface.

According to a June 27 article by Nick Statt, The Verge, and forwarded by Musk fan, Ryan Davis,  Elon Musk has a new company preparing to drill transport tunnels under cities that would carry commuter cars on a modified sled at speeds of up to 124 mph.   This new Musk company, the Boring Company (yes the man does have an active sense of humor!) is in conversations with Los Angeles officials to start digging.  And yes, his Boring Company designed drill does have a name.  Godot.

(Hmmm.  Didn’t we see this first on Dr. Who, season 3?)
