Elon Musk Wants To Use SpaceX Rockets To Travel Anywhere On Earth
A year ago, when introducing the giant rocket for the colonization of Mars BFR, Musk mentioned that his company could use this development for a transportation system on Earth. Apparently, these were not empty words, as recently Gwynn Shotwell, the chief operating officer of SpaceX, during the conversation said that this will definitely happen..
The system will work similarly to aviation, moving between two points on the planet, but at a much higher speed (27,000 km / h). At the moment, the longest way to the launch site is, but on May 16, Elon Musk in his twitter figured out how to solve this problem..
He wrote that from the city to the spaceport in just 10–15 minutes can be reached by a vacuum train passing under the surface of the earth and the ocean.
Recall that the Boring Company is already working on a network of tunnels in Los Angeles, and recently completed one of the directions and is now awaiting permission to lay the internal electrical network..
Recall that the SpaceX team postponed the launch of the Falcon 9.
