SF to LA in 35 Minutes

A new plan for a high speed tube from Los Angeles to San Francisco has been introduced by billionaire Elon Musk. The tube would run pods on a thin layer of air at around 800 MPH, around 4 times faster than the proposed high speed rail. Normally an idea reserved for science fiction, it's been proposed by a man who has made electric cars popular and public space travel a near-reality. [Treehugger}
