I have to admit that this plan might sound like one of those Physics 101 proposals that you read with mild interest and ignore, but this is Elon Musk we're talking about. They call him "The Real Tony Stark", but I think that's giving him too little credit.

Hide: Is Elon Musk the real Tony Stark?

Now, it doesn't seem that Elon Musk is actively seeking to build this Hyperloop himself, but he's proposing it as an alternative for the already planned, much slower CalTrans high-speed train, which would have comparable construction costs (and much higher right-of-way land purchase costs), and I find it hard to believe that he wouldn't take as active a roles as he's allowed.

Here's his proposal at Tesla Motors' website (the announcement at the SpaceX seems to be overloaded, probably by reporters)

Here's the full preliminary proposal [PDF]
