I'm deadly serious about megatunnels, vows Elon Musk

The main driver for this is safety for his workers (along with other possible motivations). There was a hit and run incident that injured 3 employees. So this tunnel will mean safer commute to work.

Not sure if he is totally serious about 'The Boring Company' but I could see him doing it for sure if he can get this first tunnel done without major incident. This will have a use possibly in the Mars colonisation plan so as he has shown before he will take a gamble at creating another company if he feels it will benefit that plan in terms of technology and also increased revenue.

SpaceX makes successful rocket launch

Re: Well done SpaceX

The side view posted here is from an earlier mission (CRS-8). The most recent launch on January 14th was IRIDIUM-1.

Interesting though that they plan to re-use the booster from CRS-8 in an upcoming mission (SES-10) somewhere around the end February/early March depending on weather and a lack of another RUD.

That footage in the link is from an older landing (CRS-8). The latest launch on January 14th was the IRIDIUM-1 mission.
