Two things: I seem to be fascinated by modes of transport, and someone pointed out that I haven't blogged in over two years.

Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX, envisioned a human transport system comprised of passenger-filled pods that travel through vacuum tubes at incredibly high speeds -- 700mph to be exact. Such speeds could carry passengers from Los Angeles to Las Vegas in 20 minutes (a distance of 400 miles). Hyperloop One offered to work with Musk to explore the possibilities, and tests are being conducted in the Nevada desert.
