Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk just lit up the Twitterverse with a series of tweets indicating that he received the go-ahead for an ultrafast underground hyperloop transit system that would connect New York City to Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington D. C. in under 30 minutes.



Whether his claim is real or #fakenews is yet to be determined. Calls to Philadelphia officials were not immediately returned.


Musk’s tweet does not address how passengers would board and embark in dozens of stops and still make the trip in 29 minutes.

The Boring Company, founded by Musk in 2016, is a tunneling company that has only recently tested its first prototype designs in the Nevada desert, according to TechCrunch.





“To solve the problem of soul-destroying traffic, roads must go 3D, which means either flying cars or tunnels,” the company states. “Unlike flying cars, tunnels are weatherproof, out of sight and won’t fall on your head.”

Skeptics weighed in on the idea immediately.
