Are Airplanes A Thing of the Past, Not So Fast

There is a lot of hype about the new Hyperloop since Elon Musk introduced it yesterday. Its a plan to created a pressurized subway like transportation system that would get you from San Francisco to Los Angeles in 30 minutes. And possible expand to different places like New York and Florida.

This is a very interesting idea and it could eliminated the need for air travel in the future. But this seems to be a long ways away.  Imagine how much infrastructure this would require, to eliminate the airline industry you would need hundreds of tunnels going from many different locations. The beauty of the airline industry is that it does not require a lot of infrastructure except for the airports.

So don’t start selling you airline stocks just yet.
