Yesterday, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said he received verbal approval from the United States government for his aptly named Boring Company to build an underground Hyperloop transit network connecting New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington D.C. The proposed Hyperloop would have stops connecting each city center, and a dozen more entry or exit elevators located within each city. It would work by shooting pods through a vacuumed-sealed tube at speeds up to 700 mph. Theoretically, travel from New York to Washington would take just 29 minutes.
