Musk says LA Hyperloop tunnel to be unveiled December 10

Elon Musk's Savage Fortnite Joke Has Led To A Trolling War

Privately held Boring Co has been promoting its plans for tunnels that would allow high-speed travel between cities.

Posting on Twitter on Sunday night, the Boring Company founder and CEO announced the first test tunnel of the ambitious ultra-high-speed hyperloop project in Los Angeles will be open for public rides on December 11. "The first tunnel" refers to the initial tunnel that The Boring Company has been digging under the streets of Hawthorne. A bank of elevators would take pedestrians, cyclists or cars from street-level stations to underground tunnel stops.

Taking to Twitter, the billionaire SpaceX founder said his underground tunnel for the project "is nearly done" and will be ready on December 10. In June he said the fare would be $1 per passenger.

Brazil police to probe allegations of election disinformation on WhatsApp
Flavio Bolsonaro tweeted Friday when he initially revealed his account had been blocked. WhatsApp said in a statement that it was taking the allegation seriously.

The company has said its technology could move drivers, as well as pods carrying passengers and bicyclists, through tunnels at speeds of up to 130 miles per hour. According to the Boring Company's website, it runs from SpaceX's parking lot east of Crenshaw Boulevard and south of 120th Street, then it turns west under 120th Street, and remains underground along 120th Street for 2 miles. One of the proposed routes would take passengers from the District to NY in under 30 minutes.

Another visionary entrepreneur, Richard Branson, who like Musk also is involved in space travel, is backing a Virgin Hyperloop One which has been testing in Nevada and opened a research center in southern Spain.
