Elon Musk arrives to speak at Boring Company community meeting in Bel Air Los Angeles California

The Boring Company's conceptual map for its planned Los Angeles tunnel system.

Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk will headline a town-hall style meeting in Brentwood on Thursday, May 17, where the public will have the opportunity to ask the visionary himself about his plans to build a futuristic, all-electric transit system underneath Los Angeles. Elon Musk and project leader Steve Davis alluded that the team at The Boring Company is challenged to match the digging space of a snail (0.03 MPH) and get up to 1/10 of the average human walking speed of about 0.03 miles per hour, compared to the current pace of around 0.0003 miles per hour.

The Boring Company's angle has always been to make tunnel digging more efficient, and Musk has purchased a second-hand machine for his company to study, which has been christened "Godot". The LA Metro company tweeted yesterday that it would be "partners moving forward" with The Boring Company, to which Elon replied that he was excited about the partnership.

Facing that reality, Le Maire said the European Union should strengthen its own legal arsenal against any such future USA threats. Le Maire said Paris would seek to strengthen Europe's ability to block sanctions and provide investment finance to companies.

Musk says the system will prioritize pedestrians and have thousands of parking space-size stations that "blend seamlessly into the fabric of a city". Tunnels, on the other hand, Musk detailed were "way less nerve-racking than flying cars" and still "so fun".

Tesla-driving Angelenos may soon be able to hop out of their battery-powered vehicle, board an electric pod in a Boring Co. tunnel and get to the port where SpaceX is about to build massive rockets that it aims to fly to Mars.

"If you build a tunnel in L.A., you can build one anywhere", Musk said, referring to the various challenges the test tunnel would need to overcome in the city, including seismic conditions, methane gas, oil fields, and regulations. The Boring Company has already built a shorter tunnel in nearby Hawthorne, where SpaceX's headquarters is located.

Investigators believe deadly Southern California explosion was intentional
Of the wounded, two of them had unknown injuries while a third person suffered from smoke-inhalation, Bommarito said. A daycare and preschool are near the site of the explosion, but authorities said all of the children are safe.

"It's one [solution] we think could work and is worth trying", he said.

It also comes as Musk wrestles with production problems for the rollout of his highly anticipated Model 3 sedan at Tesla, with some investors concerned his overlapping leadership roles at Boring and his rocket-building firm SpaceX has him spread too thin.

"The crowd was majority male, and there were very few people of color", neighborhood leader Andres Cuervo told the Los Angeles Times.

Musk also noted that he hoped the Loop would supplement existing transport systems and connect public transport lines.
