    Hyperloop will be the main mode of public transport. On Mars.

    Simples. You don't need the tube.

    Not in mine. It's a description that happens to be accurate.

    ...the contrast between the people, especially the women, in medieval age garb and the 24th century technology is quite striking.


    That's not a description. It's a judgement. Other people (for example Saudi citizens) might not find it striking.

    What wrong? The objections all concerned the safety and comfort of people.

    Some of the logistical problems are the same, although inert cargo doesn't often puke all over the upholstery.

    You guys will be OK. You'll simply be late.

    Better late than... being scraped off the walls with a big squeegee.

    I have no objection to trying it for cargo. But don't let people too near the tube in case of accident and possible massive implosion/explosion/flying debris. There will be lots of kinetic energy stored in the fully loaded cars when they are moving at full speed 1200 km or 745 miles per hour or 1093 feet per second.

    Cargo, such as propane or LNG? Boy, there's some potential for an "interesting" explosion.

    Well, there go rockets. Guess we didn't go to the moon after all.

    As long as we have to use most of the fuel of a rocket just to launch most of the rocket's fuel... we ain't gonna get very far.
