    Awesome idea but if an earthquake happens what happens to the tunnel? And the tectonic plates move so how are u gonna keep the tunnel in the same place ??

    Brilliant idea. The Swiss have been boring tunnels for over a century. A 12 foot tunnel under LA sounds near the edge of claustrophobia though.

    If anything, I'm impressed with ANYBODY that looks toward the future. Y'all can argue about whether this guy is a genius or not and why he stutters, but at least he's doing the "Jetsons" thing by visualizing the future and not romanticizing the past. If I have to see one more retro styled anything I'm gonna barf!

    I always wanted to hate Elon Musk , but I just can't. I wanted to hate him for the usual reasons that the rich tend to be arrogant. I am absolutely sure that Elon Musk is Autistic and I don'y mean the fashionable modern type of Autism that everyone has today. I do mean the "Special set" of schizophrenic Autism.

    there is the subterrene device that uses lithium at 1500 kelvin to melt the forward surface which then sends molten slag back through the worm that then injects it into the hole its digging like glass, sealing the tube up as it moves forwards, they have had these things for years i have all the patents and the us patent office has them too, i cant recall the patent number but its easy to look it up on the search algorithm , these things are i suppose nuclear powered and remote steared, i had thought these things were in very common use tunneling between walmarts and making the military underground highway, these machines don't need to shore up the tunnel behind them.

    What has this guy invented? I see some rich guy trying to re invent the wheel. Even some of the comments here saying he should be Or he will be compared to Einstein!? Seriously! lol So Elon disciples, what happens to these tunnel systems when a large earthquake hits!? Don't believe for one second that Elon Musk is an expert seismologist because he obviously isn't! You will all be trapped in your little electric coffins and we will have to spend millions to dig you up! And the expense of tunneling won't be rectified by his logic at all. In fact it will increase the price of tunnels. You still need to ventilate any tunnel humans will occupy whether there's car exhaust in it or not! ANYONE with confined entry training knows this and understands LOL....low oxygen levels. And what about a flood! Tunneling is not the answer by any means in fact, just more problems and money. And Elon says ummm and stumbles around his words so much because he's trying to believe his own BS! lol NOT because he's trying to dumb it down for all us dummies! lol He's the dummy but mega money apparently means your some genius! Is Johnny Depp and Oprah gonna start funding useless rockets to Mars too! lol

    So, this is the first real interview I've watched with Elon Musk. First observation: They've been talking about digging tunnels under L.A. for 10 minutes and said nothing. It is too costly and too slow. It is Elon's hobby. That's what we got from this. Next, we move onto Electric Cars and Self Driving cars. There's an interesting video at 14:02 Elon's rhythm of speech is very peculiar. It's like he's moving backwards and forwards. He doesn't talk with certainty. Bup....Bup....bup,,bup,bup,bup.... Very difficult to hear him talk for extended periods. He then goes on to talk about the risks and problems associated with implementing and trusting Self Driving Cars. More about security........I'm getting pretty bored at 20 minutes now. No flow in the way Elon speaks. Repeats words a lot. You,you, so,so, em. it's quite, i mean, it's quite. Extremely difficult to listen to. Wow, this is gonna be a hard interview to get through. Now we've moved onto Renewable Energy. Solar Roofing. The problem with this interview is that Elon is just stating facts, he's not saying anything interesting. Just stating obvious technical data and facts about future inventions. It doesn't help that he talks in quite an awkward way. The interviewer is also talking in a very strange way. It's like listening to two musicians who have no rhythm. A guitarist and bassist not able to find the beat. That's what this jam sounds like. Boring....28 minutes....Now we're talking about moving away from Fossil Fuels. This is still relative to Renewable Energy. Aha, now we're moving onto Politics. At 29 minutes we're now on Climate Change. We're moving fast now. 30 minutes, Space X and Mars. There's a cool video of a rocket returning back to Earth at 30:50 What is wrong with these people. Listen to this: 31:13 'So that was, that was, that was the sped up' 'That was the slowed down version' 'that was, thought that was the sped up version' So much repetition it's amazing. So apparently, they want to send people to Mars. We already knew that.....Okay, at 33 minutes we're talking about an interplanetary transport system. at 35 minutes Elon is talking about making the right decisions for future research. He's talking about how some projects are interconnected. He's now saying that technology doesn't always improve over time. That there are periods of darkness and stagnation.////Phew, okay, finally got to the end. The topics were interesting but the interview overall was strange paced, matter of fact and awkward. Most of Elon's innovation ideas are good but they look too far into the future or are too difficult and complex to actualize./// At the very end Elon says 'You'll tell me if it genuinely gets too crazy' Elon does realize that he's not the first to conceptualize futuristic ideas I hope...Also, there's a difference between Sci-Fi and reality. Anyone can dream and project to their hearts content, no problem. You can write a Sci-Fi novel or story like Star Wars or X-Men and put in the craziest scientific ideas and inventions you can come up with. Nothing wrong with that. However, not all of them translate into reality. So, writing a novel about a super speed underground highway with bandits undearneath L.A. in the year 2090 is great, trying to turn that into reality, especially if not possible due to technological constraints is another story.///I get it, he's ambitious but some of the ideas are a little too far fetched for this era./////Well, that was my take on the interview. A little negative but that's how it went. Happy New Year 2019!

      +KalmarGrabbarna Yeah. If you're interested in pursuing a career in either film or audio I would greatly suggest seeing if your high school offers a digital media class or another type of TV class. I'm taking it and we learn how to edit video and audio. Plus if we have free time we get to play around on photoshop. We also film the home sports games. ItPlus might help with youtube.s just really fun.

      It's already sped up. Clouds are just close to ground. Evet when you go in a skyscraper you can be above the clouds. (I'm working at 34. floor) So it was already sped up, they did not change it at the last second.
      I think you should check the spacex youtube channel. There are tons of landings like this one

    Simply brilliant, the way he is intellectually curious and thirsty. Reminds me of those Renaissance figures, where knowledge and evolution are appreciated above everything else. The way he talks shows how his brain generates ideas quickly so he has to improvise with those distorted words. Finally someone we can look up to in this dirty era.

    Everyone is coming in their pants about Musk; he's not the messiah he's a very naughty boy. Seriously though, he's just another capitalist (albeit with an ecofriendly syrup additive). His aspirations of colonising Mars illustrate how bonkers he is. And of course he is hugely in favour of free-market economics (that thing which has allowed the one percent to control the world's wealth). People are on here comparing him to Einstein - he's a business man. Relatively benign, but hardly a saviour. We already have all the tech we need to live happily, what we are lacking is ethics. Musk is great at getting things done, it's just a shame he isn't pioneering social change. I guess that's a lot harder to get excited about, perhaps because it requires more imagination.

    "I'm just trying to think of the future and not feel sad"...Humanity needs more Elon Musks. His statement may seem obvious and nonconsequential, but it's actually revolutionary.
    Humanities beliefs have always been dark and grim about the future, ask any older person what they think about the future and they will talk about the good old days and how we are entering scary times. Many major religions point to an apocalypse; to most the future means death, destruction, poverty, disease, and darkness.
    And humanity acts accordingly. People live like the future should either not be thought about, or be thought about to warn of future demise. "There is no hope in humanity, so I might as well do what I need to do for me and my family".
    Elon was spot on with his diverging streams analogy. If humanity believe that death and destruction are the sole heirs of the future, then we are choosing a stream that leads there. But, Elon is trying to push the current to a new path. I hope he continues the revolution of "not feeling sad"
