Yes please! I wonder if Tesla is hiring techs?

Turns out they actually have a service facility in Tampa. No technician openings at the moment but it may be something I keep my eye on. I would love a chance to work on the hyperloop project and it seems like starting at one of their service facilities wouldn't be too bad of a way to start.

This is sort of what I was thinking too.

Although I'm having a hard time envisioning how the air pressure would be maintained at a constant rate, throughout the entire tunnel at an efficient rate. I suppose if you extend the transportation tube out on both sides, with light weight, strong material, then you could increase the psi applied to the transport tube to a point where it is a relatively low pressure spread over a very large area.

The more I think about it, the more I want to think about it! Damn it! Africa needs to have more geeks/ex-nukes to geek out about this with me!
