Boring Company CEO Elon Musk’s future plans for his company are to combine the hyperloop technology with SpaceX’s rockets to create a transportation system to get anywhere in the world in less than one hour.

After lanching the BFR, which is a giant rocket that SpaceX wants to use to take humans to Mars, Musk said we could also use it for a transportation system.

The idea is being worked on by SpaceX. It’s COO Gwynne Shotwell presented the idea during a Ted Talk, saying it would definitely happen.

 

00:49

The system will work like an airplane which travels from point to point, but it would reach a much higher speed of 27,000km/h, which would greatly decreases the time of the flight

It will take a long time to transport people to the SpaceX spaceport but Musk said he has a solution for this too by connecting it to the hyperloop system. This could result in travel time of less than an hour from any city center to the other side of the world.

The first spaceport, hyperloop combination could be in Los Angeles, where the Boring Company is already working on the tunnels, and after Musk tweeted the announcement, he said he will also give a presentation about this plan.

Boring is currently trying to get approval for the next stage of its electric tunnel network and showed a map of it last year but it could be updated with a new part showing the tunnel network connection to the new spaceport.
