Hyper loop

I am posting this basically because it intrigues me. I had a similar idea in College based on the + and – repulsion of magnets. I felt you could use that to levitate something or even propel something.

From Washington Post..

SpaceX and Tesla chief executive Elon Musk on Monday released his concept for a transportation system that could deliver passengers from San Francisco to Los Angeles in 30 minutes — if it is ever built.

View Photo Gallery –The billionaire entrepreneur and SpaceX founder has unveiled a concept for a transportation system that he says could deliver passengers from San Francisco to Los Angeles in about 30 minutes — if it is ever built. Musk provided these illustrations.

The billionaire entrepreneur estimated that the “Hyperloop” — a solar-powered, earthquake-resistant, pod-based transportation system — would cost $6 billion and take 10 years to build, assuming it can be built at all. The train would run on a “round induction motor” similar to the one used in Tesla Motors’ Model S.

“It should just feel really super smooth and quiet, and obviously there’d never be any turbulence or anything,” Musk said during a conference call Monday after posting the 57-page plan to his Web site.

Musk, who had told Tesla investors he had no plans to build the system, said he would be open to building a prototype that he would hand off to someone else to build if no one else offered to do so.

While looking for this this morning I ran across the Obama Administration white paper justifying NSA surveillance which is posted below. I of course do not buy it any way shape or form.
