Will it really happen this time?
And if/when it does, can we please make sure it's not ONLY Elon Musk that gets credit for the Hyperloop idea, which has been bouncing around since the early 1800s?

"Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT), the startup aspiring to bring the Hyperloop to life, recently announced plans to begin construction on a full-scale, passenger-ready Hyperloop in 2016. The prototype will run 5 miles through Quay Valley, a planned community rising from nothing along Interstate 5, midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. The venture already has several potential investors, HTT has claimed.
To develop the technology and actually build it, HTT recently signed agreements to work with Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum and global engineering design firm Aecom. The two companies will provide expertise in exchange for stock options in the company, joining several engineers from Boeing and SpaceX in working on the effort."
