People tend to get hung up on a small detail of this seriously cool mission. Here's the catch: it's a one way trip.
PBS NewsHour may have found one answer to the plunge in television viewers and that's PBS Digital Studio's new online show, Everything but the News, the brainchild of Steve Goldbloom and Noah Pink.
Musk is right, today Steve Jobs is still generally perceived as being "way cooler" than him. But that could change. What will the history books conclude, in 10 or 20 years from now?
If we are to truly solve our energy crisis, then we must engage a lot more children today in learning about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). With our current education system, we are going in the opposite direction.
We have a three-pronged problem here in the United States, and it's up to you and me to solve it.
While much of this industry feels futuristic, the reality is that 3D printing is very real, and will very much become the norm of human existence.

The Moon! Mars! Asteroids! Rockets! Helium 3! Space solar power! Space tourism! We go through fads, swarm around the hero de jour, and spend far too much time trashing the other guy's ideas in favor of our own.

Hyperloop's biggest obstacle is the ever-growling Cerberus of the people's pocketbook: a dollar-sniffing watchdog with the three heads of public resistance, legislative reluctance, and administrative recalcitrance. Sneaking a good idea past this hell hound is a Heraclean task.
The chances of Hyperloop actually working are nearly 100 percent as the science as already been proved. The chances of Hyperloop becoming a constructed reality is an entirely different concern.
The entire car industry should probably study Tesla, to understand if and how it plans to take such market share from all current incumbents. Assuming they will all learn the same underlying secret, what car will they make after they finished their collective hypothetical study?
