First, all of our US major industrial bases are being captured and consolidated into the hands of global 1% OLD WORLD KINGS------in what is yet another ONE WORLD ONE GIANT GLOBAL CORPORATION. These industrial base are our US 99% WE THE PEOPLE SOVEREIGN DOMAIN-----being eliminated by 5% freemason/Greek player/pols who DON'T CARE----

We are sure MARYLAND'S proprietary deals with MEGLA and HYPER-LOOP are the same as CALIF-----a 35 mile HIGH-SPEED RAIL from DC to BALTIMORE will be mostly MEGLA above ground magnetic rails with HYPER-LOOP tunnels located at each STATION STOP ---that STATION STOP being located on a global factory campus. Underground tunnels sending products in PODS to FREIGHT HIGH SPEED RAIL------with PORT OF BALTIMORE having same underwater tunnel/tube structure from cargo ships to BASE STATION for HIGH SPEED RAIL.
THE PROBLEM IS THAT ALL THIS INFRASTRUCTURE AND TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN COST ARE SIMPLY PROMOTING R AND D ----FOR MUSK INTER-PLANETARY HYPER-LOOP TRANSIT.
Bringing these tunnels and PODS to SPACE ELEVATOR projects which is the goal----each global region building its own TETHERING PLATFORMS for SPACE ELEVATORS ----

As a result, lunar synchronous orbit is actually higher than geosynchronous orbit. A moon space elevator would have to place an anchor at one of the Lagrange points which is where earth's gravity pretty much cancels out the moon's gravity and anything that is put there gets "stuck". here is what wikipedia has to say about it'.
Yes, we are going to pack them in there like sardines ------these speeds on Earth are simply acclimating our 99% WE THE PEOPLE to speeds intended in SPACE POD TRANSIT.

Musk Says Hyperloop Could Work On Mars… Maybe Even Better!
Elon Musk has always been up-front about his desire to see humans settle on the Red Planet. In the past few years, he has said that one of his main reasons for establishing SpaceX was to see humanity colonize Mars. He has also stated that he believes that using Mars as a “backup location” for humanity might be necessary for our survival, and even suggested we use nukes to terraform it.
And in his latest speech extolling the virtues of colonizing Mars, Musk listed another reason. The Hyperloop – his concept for a high-speed train that relies steel tubes, aluminum cars and maglev technology to go really fast – might actually work better in a Martian environment. The announcement came as part of the award ceremony for the Hyperloop Pod Competition, which saw 100 university teams compete to create a design for a Hyperloop podcar.
It was the first time that Musk has addressed the issue of transportation on Mars. In the past, he has spoken about establishing a colony with 80,000 people, and has also discussed his plans to build a Mars Colonial Transporter to transport 100 metric tons (220,462 lbs) of cargo or 100 people to the surface of Mars at a time (for a fee of $50,000 apiece). He has also discussed communications, saying that he would like to bring the internet to Mars once a colony was established.

Here on Earth, the Hyperloop would rely on low-pressure steel tubes and a series of aluminum pod cars to whisk passengers between major cities at speeds of up to 1280 km/h (800 mph). But on Mars, according to Musk, you wouldn’t even need tubes.
As Musk said during the course of the ceremony: “On Mars you basically just need a track. You might be able to just have a road, honestly. [It would] go pretty fast… It would obviously have to be electric because there’s no oxygen. You have to have really fast electric cars or trains or things.”
Essentially, Musk was referring to the fact that since Mars has only 1% the air pressure of Earth, air resistance would not be a factor. Whereas his high-speed train concept requires tubes with very low air pressure to reach the speed of sound here on Earth, on Mars they could reach those speeds out in the open. One might say, it actually makes more sense to build this train on Mars rather than on Earth!
The Hyperloop Pod Competition, which was hosted by SpaceX, took place between Jan 27th and 29th. The winning entry came from MIT, who’s design was selected from 100 different entries. Their pod car, which is roughly 2.5 meters long and 1 meter wide (8.2 by 3.2 feet), would weight 250 kg (551 lbs) and be able to achieve an estimated cruise speed of 110 m/s (396 km/h; 246 mph). While this is slightly less than a third of the speed called for in Musk’s original proposal, this figure representing cruising speed (not maximum speed), and is certainly a step in that direction.

The reason for this, they claimed, is because it is “massively simpler and more scalable.” In addition, compared to the other designs’ levitation systems, theirs had one of the lowest drag coefficients.
The team – which consists of 25 students with backgrounds in aeronautics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and business management – will spend the next five months building and testing their pod. The final prototype will participate in a trial run this June, where it will run on the one-mile Hyperloop Test Track at SpaceX’s headquarters in California.
Since he first unveiled it back in 2013, Musk’s Hyperloop concept has been the subject of considerable interest and skepticism. However, in the past few years, two companies – Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) and Hyperloop Technologies – have emerged with the intention of seeing the concept through to fruition. Both of these companies have secured lucrative partnerships since their inception, and are even breaking ground on their own test tracks in California and Nevada.
And with a design for a podcar now secured, and tests schedules to take place this summer, the dream of a “fifth mode of transportation” is one step closer to becoming a reality! The only question is, which will come first – Hyperloops connecting major cities here on Earth, or running passengers and freight between domed settlements on Mars?
Only time will tell! And be sure to check out Team MIT’s video:

It's time to take Elon Musk seriously and literally. After Twitter hints, tidbits, and whining about LA traffic, the serial entrepreneur and budding mole man is digging a tunnel. Well, a hole.
Over the weekend, workers excavated a "test trench" 30 feet wide, 50 feet long, and 15 feet deep on the grounds of SpaceX’s Los Angeles headquarters. Musk calls it the beginning of an experiment. “We’re just going to figure out what it takes to improve tunneling speed by, I think, somewhere between 500 and 1,000 percent,” he said Sunday during a hyperloop design competition at SpaceX. “We have no idea what we’re doing—I want to be clear about that.”
Musk first pitched this idea last week in a tweet lamenting LA's atrocious traffic, promising to "build a tunnel boring machine and just start digging." He has since revealed a far wider vision of eliminating the city's famed congestion by shuffling humanity through a network of tunnels. "If you think of tunnels going 10, 20, 30 layers deep (or more), it is obvious that going 3D down will encompass the needs of any city’s transport of arbitrary size," he told WIRED last week in a Twitter direct message.
“You have tall buildings, they’re all 3D, and then everyone wants to go into the building and leave the building at a same time,” he said Sunday. “On a 2D road network, that obviously doesn’t work, so you have to go 3D either up or down. And I think probably down.”
That grandiose vision starts with a hole in Hawthorne, the Los Angeles suburb SpaceX calls home. Musk doesn't need permission to dig on company property, but is working with the city on plans for a pedestrian bridge or tunnel so people can safely cross the wide thoroughfare alongside the campus. (Three SpaceX employees were hit by a car last month.) Now, it seems, Musk has settled on the tunnel, where he can get his fingernails dirty testing new boring techniques. But extending the shaft all the way to Los Angeles' airport—as Musk has threatened to do—would require more discussion, paperwork, and LA City Council approval, says a spokesperson for the LA Department of Public Works.
The Boring Part
Unfortunately for urban humanity, and Angelenos in particular, boring is more than an engineering problem to be solved by Musk's knack for clever solutions. Big American digging projects are definitely screwy—Big Dig and Second Avenue Subway, anyone?—but not just because the machinery gets busted.
Digging under cities takes time because a) the ground is full of stuff; b) that stuff is poorly mapped; and c) construction freaks out the locals. "Our recent experience with tunnels in the US is that neighbors worry, you run up against various environmental laws, and you just never know what’s underneath the Earth," says Michael Manville, who studies urban planning at the University of California, Los Angeles.
As the LA Metro has discovered, these things can be very, very costly. Relocating underground electricity, power, gas, and telecommunications lines ate through more than $45 million of the LA’s new rail line reserve budget—half of what the transportation authority had put aside for accidental project hiccups—five years before the project is set to conclude. A decade of lawsuits filed by the Beverly Hills school district to prevent tunneling under its name-brand high school held up construction on a Metro extension for years. And as New York City learned with the Second Avenue subway project, big tunnels also have to contend with unsteady funding and complaints about construction noise.
Meanwhile, the solution to horrifying traffic is definitely not more roads, but getting people out of their vehicles. Make trains and Bus Rapid Transit truly convenient and folks just might let someone else do the driving. Charge drivers to use the road and they just might embrace the low-tech carpool.
"Roads are basically the only infrastructure we have that we experience daily shortages of," says Manville. "We don’t have rolling blackouts, the toilets don’t back up twice a day, and that’s not because the technology in those things is so much better. We just don’t give them away for free."
Asked about these alternatives, Musk said, "better tunneling tech improves everything: road, subway, Hyperloop." Fair point—Bertha, the tunneling machine formerly stuck under Seattle with a jammed cutterhead, would appreciate the help.
So better boring? Bring it on. But boring’s not the only thing bungling big builds.
We think that means------handing trillions in Federal, state, and local taxes to pay for all of SPACE X planetary mining technology goals.
Our existing ACELA ordinary train on rails can go 150-180 MPH----it simply need TRACK separate from our MARC TRAIN. That is an affordable, sustainable TRAIN/RAIL policy.
JAPAN is indeed behind MEGLEV ------and no doubt will be partnered with MUSK---HYPER-LOOP-----as with all US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONE infrastructure building-----OPERATIONS of these high-speed trains will be outsourced to a foreign global corporation ----this project likely going to a JAPANESE corporation ----as PORT OF BALTIMORE is managed and operational to a global CHINESE corporation.
JAPAN without coincidence is already starting its own SPACE ELEVATOR projects with all those TETHERS----with all those HYPER-LOOP PODS as transit vehicles for FREIGHT and PASSENGERS.
These projects are sold as PASSENGER-----as local public transit PROJECTS to pretend all this eminent domain of real estate is not attacking our state and federal sovereignty ---and the pretending these projects are PASSENGER oriented rather than FREIGHT has to do with needing SOCIAL BENEFIT in order to send trillions of taxpayer money to these global private RAIL INFRASTRUCTURE.
The Battle of the SupertrainsDec 13, 2017Promoters are touting two different multi-billion-dollar high-speed projects between Washington, D.C., and Baltimore. Is it a fantasy, or a game changer?
A private company called Baltimore Washington Rapid-Rail unveiled three potential routes that the firm would like to use to build a magnetic-levitation train line. BWRR is all-in on importing Japan’s superconducting maglev technology to create a 300-mph supertrain that it says could shorten the trip between the two cities to just 15 minutes. The estimated price tag? $10 billion, a bill BWRR says will be covered by private investment—including, possibly, a loan from the Japan Bank for International Cooperation.
Also around the same time, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan tweeted out that his administration was also clearing a path for the Boring Company, that tunnel-digging side project of Tesla boss and serial entrepreneur Elon Musk. As early as January, according to a state permit, Musk’s firm could begin digging a 10.3-mile-long tunnel beneath the state-owned portion of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway that runs from the Baltimore city line south to Maryland 175 in Hanover, the first leg of what is the ultimate goal for Musk: digging two, 35-mile-long tunnels between Baltimore and Washington, D.C., into which he could install a hyperloop—the super-ultra-high-speed conveyance that could blast passengers in pressurized capsules traveling in a near-vacuum at more than 600 mph.
The estimated budget for this futuristic mode: Well, no one really knows. The best the Boring Company can do is to say that tunneling can cost $1 billion per mile, and that, in order for hyperloop to be a reality, those costs have to decrease “by a factor of more than 10.”
Either one of the two competing visions for the 40-mile spine of the bustling Northeast Corridor would dramatically reshape commuter options between the two cities, use radically new technology, and cost many billions of dollars. And they also represent what their boosters see as the first step toward a bigger prize: establishing the long-sought New York City-to-D.C. high-speed line. But it’s less clear who would benefit from these schemes, or the role they might play in the larger regional transportation picture.
