Ilona Musk at TED

It is assumed that in road tunnels machine be moved by special trucks.

The founder of SpaceX, Tesla and The Boring Company Elon Musk revealed details of its plans for the drilling of tunnels under the ground at the TED conference passes N+1.

In February of this year, Musk started to dig a test pit with a width of 15 meters in the Parking lot of the headquarters of SpaceX.

Then it became known that the concept involves the construction of up to 30 levels of the tunnels, which will move cars and high-speed trains, including Hyperloop.

The plans also include Mask testing and further improvement of technique.

The main limiting factor in modern construction of tunnels is the rate of penetration, so Musk hopes to study principles acquired machines and to increase the rate of penetration up to ten times.

At the TED conference Musk for the first time demonstrated how it can be used the system of tunnels for transporting vehicles .

It is assumed that in road tunnels machine be moved by special trucks that also will act as an Elevator for communication tunnels with the surface.

The tunnels will not speed limits, so the trolley car can accelerate up to 200 kilometers per hour.

The founder of the Boring Company also noted that at the moment he attaches to this project only two to three percent of the time. Probably the concept today is still far from realization.

In March it was reported that in the U.S. the company Hyperloop One built the first section of “pipe” for high-speed transportation system.

Previously, the Company SpaceX first tested the engine for interplanetary flights Raptor.
