I really wish that states and cities would quit throwing money at this vaporware.

Part of the capitalist philosophy is that you put some money behind a NEW idea and you see where it goes... evaluate it some time later and go from there.

Not sure where Virgin Hyperloop is, but since 2015 there have been competitions held by SpaceX specifically in a ~1 mile vacuum* tube.


Just because you do not like an idea, does not automatically make it "vaporware".

You can follow the updates for the competition here (interestingly enough, the pod competition for this year starts today) https://mobile.twitter.com/Hyperloop


* Nearly vacuum, you do not need to bring the tube to a hard vacuum, the original white paper from 2013 addressed that [ https://www.spacex.com/sites/spacex/files/hyperloop_alpha.pdf ]:
