WSJ is not a financial magazine. It's one of the big 5 newspapers and has been around for 127 years, and they have an intense fact checking. In other words, the Journal is far too important for civilization to give two shits whether you think they know what they are talking about.

You didn't actually READ how hyperloop works, did you.
Because you wouldn't be talking about vacuum tube if you did.
How about you go and read the proposal, and then we talk?

#182 - angelusprimus (08/02/2016) [-]
Yeah, I give up.
I had exactly the same conversations 15 years ago, when people were convincing me how 300 mile electric car for under 60k will never be possible, and how Tesla motors is a scam, and they will never make more than 1000 cars.
Then ten years ago, when people were explaining to me how SpaceX will never have a working rocket that can economically launch.
But yes, you are right. Objects heavier than air will never fly, academy of science has proven it.

terrorism will never be easier than shooting a hunting rifle into a hyperloop tube and violently depressurizing everyone inside the entire length because the safety features can't kick in to re-pressurize until they sense the depressurization, at which point you've already been crushed to paste by the returning atmosphere

Again, you didn't read the proposal or you wouldn't be saying stupid things like that.

>0.0001% atmospheric pressure in the tube, but that's not a vacuum
I guess technically
>mechanisms every 50 feet to re-pressurize in case of pressure failure
totally not talking about a vacuum chamber, yeah
did I miss the part of it where he explains how he's gonna achieve such low pressure without creating a vacuum?
did Musk invent something completely new for this? did he find a way to physically bottle outer space or do you not understand how pressure works?

I understand how it works very well. Thank you. And principles are not that new if you bothered to research them, they just have not been used in exactly such way before.
Tubes are maintained at partial vacuum, not full vacuum, and the pods are on air-caster skis not on maglev.
But sure, except for that, you got it right.

Mate. Do you know the difference between partial vacuum and full vacuum?
User avatar
#259 - angelusprimus (08/03/2016) [-]
I do. do you know the difference between creating and maintaining the two?
I do. And they are massive.
Also, he keeps saying how its not feasable, and yet he is completely wrong on very basics of the technology. He keeps saying "it's a normal maglev" when its not maglev at all.
Literally he has no idea about the technology he keeps saying won't work.

actually no, that's a financial magazine. they know nothing of physics, engineering, or safety and kinda don't even know what they're talking about here.
case in point: they didn't point out that that isn't a hyperloop, it's a normal maglev, nothing at all like what Elon is proposing. where's the tube? it's supposed to run in almost zero pressure.
the train part isn't what people are questioning the feasibility of, it's the environment in which Musk wants to run it.
