    This Week Tesla And Companies

    "The drive by media." Over past few years don't permit much of what I hear or read to make it within even filtering range of my mental processes. Often it's a regurgitating experience.

    When does a tunnel become a hyperloop

    rather than driving the car onto a tray that is lowered into a tunnel, why not drive into a sealable (glazed?) pod and lower that into a tunnel entrance with airlocks to transfer into a reduced pressure tunnel. Not talking vacuum, but tunnels are very inefficient for air resistance so dropping...

    Could Tesla become the primary manufacturer of the Hyperloop vehicle?

    This seems like a natural fit for Tesla. They could become the primary manufacturer of the Hyperloop vehicle—not the whole system, just the vehicle itself—and perhaps some of the key external components. The rest of it could be built by contractors or governments, according to Tesla's...
