How much has he, and his companies, paid in taxes?

dunno.


Do you think that encouraging private enterprise is a bad idea?
Not to a guy that pushes carbon taxes.

Single issue kind of person, are you?

Wait, didn't you say somewhere that you wouldn't mind paying a few cents more?

I imagine lasers could do it..just vaporize a hole as you go.

would need a lot of very powerful lasers mind you. pricey, but could be quite interesting to build.

Not a big fan of subsidies in general.
You're right, I don't like Musk, but I'll get over it.
I'd rather have seen that money go to cleaning up the emissions at coal plants, but I don't get to make them calls.


A few cents more, yea, I was going on about S02 scrubbers on stack emissions. The price of installing them and running them is substantial, it would be passed on to the consumer.

blinks - i am not the one being insulted here - and i did get the citation [ without googling ]

but just WTF - phage

i got it because 70 percent of fiction i read is sci fi - i dont remember reading any shakespear or other british classics since school - they dont appeal to me

but i still read at least 2 books a week [ dept on page count ]

not being able to identify a meme from a snigle book being equated to " does not read " is assanine

how many people know who " captain swosser " is - without google ?

get a grip

I would imagine that you couldn't just leave a vacant hole or tunnel. You would need to reinforce as you go. The machines that build the subway systems are an awesome example.

Oh, geez. I guess, like our president, you don't read books.

I like a lot of books. I like reading books. I don’t have time to read very much now in terms of the books, but I like reading them.

If you aren't familiar with him, you may enjoy Heinlein. On a number of levels.

Hyperloop Prototype

This source from a german system conform propaganda magazine states:

"With more than over 1000 km / h the "Hyperloop" is to transport people between San Francisco and Los Angeles. A team from the TU Munich has built the fastest prototype.
The driving time from San Francisco to Los Angeles from six hours to 30 minutes to reduce, this is the goal of the driving Tesla founder Elon Musk. "Hyperloop" he has called his future vision: a high-speed tube, which is to accelerate people in capsules by vacuum on up to 1220 kilometers per hour.
."

Hope it helped a bit

I've seen this theoretical design before and it's amazing what this man achieved so far . Very inspiring man and I wouldn't be surprised if he has already a team of scientists around to build the first interplanetary spacecraft on the EMdrive principles.
