Anyone remember a bit of an argument in this forum, not many years ago, about whether it would be better to put time and money into building spaceships or a monorail to China? It was a mcmonkey-driven discussion (or course), and I cannot remember what thread it was in. Anyway.|
Why not do both?!
Yes, not only does Musk want to take us to Mars, but he wants us to travel in super-fast tubes from California to, err, another bit of California. Still. From small beginnings, massive monorails grow!
This guy really is the closest we've got to a Howard Hughes. Why can't more exceedingly rich people risk losing money on fantastic ideas like this guy? Is using your massively massive amounts of money just to make even more money really the best you can do in life?.
