Business super-brain Elon Musk has already become famous for his technological endeavors with SpaceX and Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA). Now, the entrepreneur is attempting to bring the next big thing to transportation by releasing details on his proposed hyperloop, which could move passengers at record speeds between San Francisco and Los Angeles. “It would be great to have an alternative to flying or driving, but obviously only if it is actually better than flying or driving,” Musk wrote.
