Elon Musk’s Already Tunneling Under Los Angeles

IT’S TIME TO take Elon Musk seriously and literally. After Twitter hints, tidbits, and whining about LA traffic, the serial entrepreneur and budding mole man is digging a tunnel. Well, a hole. Over the weekend, workers excavated a “test trench” 30 feet wide, 50 feet long, and 15 feet deep on the grounds of SpaceX’s Los Angeles headquarters. Musk calls it the beginning of an experiment. “We’re just going to figure out what it takes to improve tunneling speed by, I think, somewhere between 500 and 1,000 percent,” he said Sunday during a hyperloop design competition at SpaceX. “We have no idea what we’re doing—I want to be clear about that.”
