"The traffic jam of Los Angeles bothers me. I'm going to make a tunnel-making machine. And we're going to start destroying It was the start of this playful tweet that CEO Elon Musk of Tesla uploaded on Twitter in December of 2016. Musk announced that he established Boring Company, a tunnel excavation company, a few days later, and started constructing tunnels under LA.

After two years of construction, the tunnel will open on Thursday (local time). The company will also give ordinary people a free ride to a high-speed vehicle that runs through the tunnel in the beginning.
The tunnel was constructed 3.2 kilometers from the parking lot of Musk CEO SpaceX in Hawthorne, south of Los Angeles. Boring Company operates platforms (skates) in this tunnel.

The platform flies a blade blade of a blade, not a wheel, into a magnetic field. Its maximum speed is 250 kilometers per hour. It will either carry an external vehicle or carry a capsule vehicle for platforms that can accommodate 8 to 16 people. The platform lifts the vehicle from the ground and moves it to the underground tunnel through the elevator.

"We will introduce devices that automatically transport vehicles and elevators for vehicles," Musk said on Twitter.

Boring Company is also pushing for 'Drive in Loop' project that can directly enter a tunnel from a garage. It is a system that constructs a vertical passage from a house garage to an underground tunnel and moves it to an elevator.

Vacuum-type hyperloop drive

Hawthorne tunnel is not a vacuum-type 'hyper loop' that Musk proposed in 2012. Hyperloop is a future vehicle that travels at near supersonic speeds through a tunnel that is almost in a vacuum state. Its plan is to consist of a 3.5m diameter cylindrical tunnel and a 28-passenger capsule car running through it. Hyperloop's maximum speed is 1,200 kilometers per hour. The jet is about 1.5 times faster than the Boeing 737 aircraft.

The key to hyperloop speed is vacuum tunnels and propulsion. Trains that run on ordinary trains cannot exceed 700 kilometers per hour no matter how fast they are. Above this speed, the body will be resisted by air, creating lift and possibly tipping over. Hyperloop draws air from the front of a vehicle in a tunnel close to a vacuum and compresses it to gain momentum.안전놀이터

Experts predict that hyper-loop will also be developed within two to three years at the earliest. San Francisco, it takes more than 6 hours for hyperloo to become a reality.The Los Angeles section (about 610 kilometers) can run in 35 minutes, and the Seoul-Busan area (about 400 kilometers) can run in 20 minutes.

Terra on the ground, hyperloop on the ground.

Musk announced in July last year that it will push for building a hyper loop that can be reached from Washington DC to New York in 29 minutes. "The bullet trains connecting the two cities will also stop in Philadelphia and Baltimore," he said. "Up to 12 elevator entrances will be installed at each station." In the long run, the plan is to build a cross-U.S. hyper-loop connecting LA and Washington DC.

Some of the high-speed tunnel construction has been put on hold. Boring Company decided late last month to stop construction of the four-kilometer-long tunnel between highway 405 and Seppulveda in western Los Angeles. When neighboring residents filed a lawsuit for environmental damage, they gave up the project.

However, the underground tunnel project, which is currently being carried out on 5.8 kilometers from the subway station in downtown Los Angeles to the stadium of the Los Angeles Dodgers in northern Los Angeles, will continue. When the tunnel is completed, 1,400 people will be able to get to Dodger Stadium from downtown Los Angeles every day in four minutes. The fare for one-way boarding will reportedly be around one dollar.

The imagination of the Musk with electric car Tesla running on the road, hyperloop under the ground, and spaceX rocket flying in space is becoming a reality.
