Hmm, interesting. I might check out the IPO (or is it a DPO). If they succeed, they may have a bright future. Even though the general idea is free and out there, as far as I know, they'll be the only ones with actual experience.

So many people said that this was likely the one Elon Musk idea that would never come to fruition. Even the colonization of Mars was considered more likely than the hyperloop. Elon Musk must be so proud to see this idea being taken seriously by [at least some of] the scientific community.

I really hope it succeeds. I'm excited for it!

Never, ever, ever underestimate the power of cool.

I hope this Hyperloop is built, but not very optimistic.

I cannot find anything in Google Maps called "Quay" in the Central Valley.

And where is the water going to come from for this new community located in parched California farm country?

Maybe they can put in a desalination plant and pipe it in from the ocean like Carlsbad will have in 2016.

I used to ride motorcycles out there... It is close to where Twisselman Road meets Interstate 5.
