Elon Musk Starts Digging in Southern California, But to Where?
San Jose Mercury News, June 30, 2017 -- Elon Musk’s infatuation with tunnels has taken a turn, but where it leads is anyone’s guess.
The founder of SpaceX and CEO of Tesla electric cars has unleashed his newest venture, The Boring Co., on an old parking lot outside the Hawthorne headquarters of SpaceX. There, a boring machine is completing the entrance to a tunnel he hopes will one day carry cars to LAX and beyond.
There’s just one big problem – the company hasn’t gotten permits to dig beyond the rocket company’s property, at the corner of Crenshaw Boulevard and 120th Street.
But, in typical Musk fashion, the project is moving full-speed ahead.
