Elon Musk is on a roll with all his business ideas. When he announced he wants to send cars down into the ground and give traffic a skip, it was a bit next level to imagine it actually happening. Now The Boring Company is done carving its first segment. The Company's Godot machine has begun digging right across the SpaceX building in Hawthrone, LA County.
The location makes sense considering that the company transported Godot to SpaceX's Hawthorne office in April. Musk has even submitted plans to local officials, asking permission to build a pedestrian tunnel from the SpaceX building to its parking lot across the road. By that time The Boring Company was already done digging a vertical shaft for it.
Musk's main goal is to dig tunnels under all of LA that can be used to transport cars, bikes and even people in order to reduce traffic congestion above ground.We'll definitely know soon enough since the SpaceX chief said the segment's car/pod elevator "should be operating next week."
