Elon Musk Brings New Details About The Underground LA Tunnels Project

Musk also noted that he hoped the Loop would supplement existing transport systems and connect public transport lines.

It remained uncertain whether construction permits he has received thus far, or is still seeking from various agencies, would allow public access to his tunnels on an experimental basis. "But obviously that can only happen with public support". "You can't fly the quietest helicopters through neighborhoods without bothering people", Musk said.

Musk's celebrity status preceded him, as some visitors pushed and shoved their way into the crowded hall before the event began.

The odd little presentation held at an LA synagogue started about 25 minutes behind schedule after a late arrival from Elon Musk who ironically said he got stuck in traffic.

Whether staunch critics were swayed remained to be seen.

Rihanna Isn't Worried About An Invite To The Royal Wedding
But as one reporter found out the hard way, that doesn't mean the "Work" singer is attending the upcoming royal wedding . To which Rihanna replied: "Why do you think I invited?" "Am I coming to yours?" "It's in a week", the reporter said.


Meanwhile, Musk's firm is nearing completion on a tunnel under the Los Angeles suburb of Hawthorne, California, near his SpaceX headquarters, another one of the Tesla founder's business enterprises. He also is chief executive of rocket builder Space Exploration Technologies, or SpaceX, and the profusion of leadership roles has concerned some investors that he is spread too thin.

Resistance to his tunneling project marks a somewhat new type of challenge for Musk. Last week, he showed off the first Boring Company tunnel under Los Angles, saying it's nearly done and awaiting regulatory approvals.

But Musk denied trying to take any shortcuts, saying even with the waiver, Boring faces "600 pages of permits that would be required for this tunnel". They would be dug at a minimum of 30 feet to 60 feet underground, way below utilities.

"Principally we're going to fly BFR like an plane and do point-to-point journey on Earth so you may take off from New York Metropolis or Vancouver, and fly midway throughout the globe", she stated within the interview. The two spoke at The Boring Company Information Session and expressed their vision for creating "pods" that could transport 16 passengers at a time at a cost of just a dollar!

The concept is to pack no less than 100 passengers per flight on a brilliant highly effective rocket that Musk has dubbed the BFR - which is about two-and-a-half occasions the dimensions of the Falcon Heavy rocket that put a Tesla into area in February (by chance overshooting the orbit of Mars).
