Thanks.

Do the original design plan for Hyperloop technology was for country to country travel by Railways?

Thanks & Regards,

NO NO. You will "see" a complete pic of space when you die:
heaven is perched somewhere on top of the universe, and on
your way there you will see all of space, plus be able to
take pics with your smartphone.
It says so in between the lines of the Fible...

In your case, Monsieur St-Pierre will probably
divert you to another location, where you need
not worry about hydro bills...

Thanks.

Do the original design plan by Elon using Hyperloop technology was for international train travel?

Funny. You exclude Mars as an option here as if I was excluding it my previous posts, furthering the ignorance of your comment. Which, for the record, I haven't watched or read any sci-fi for at least a couple of years now.

I haven't asserted that I know how or when such an event will take place, I've merely stated that I believe it to be a likely event in the future. And more importantly, that research and development in the area shouldn't, or doesn't need to be hindered by a lack of funding.

The 100-150 year bracket I mentioned was to say that beyond this time frame, we cannot possibly conceive of what technologies will be available. Let alone 1000 years.

Of course it could be argued that 50 years is beyond prediction also, but I think there would be some accurate models for this.

Furthermore, who said anything about populating another planet?

It's poorly lit and out of focus. You might have better luck taking a better photo. Put the paper under a pair of lights or table lamps each at a 45 degree angle to the copy. Whatever cam or phone you're using, very carefully shoot straight-on and make sure the words are in sharp focus. If you need to, do some photo editing to make sure people can read it clearly.

Or, just write up and post some questions directly here. Writing up and formatting math is a great way to understand it. Just the process of being precise about your formatting seems to have the side benefit of making you grapple with the material and learn it better.

Also, please post it right side up.

I used a past tense, Joppy, and didn't mention reading science fiction. As we've already got off this planet to a limited extent, it seemed reasonable to assume you meant something rather different. You seemed to have something in mind, and even used the word "event", but I'm unsure now what you were referring to as "getting off this planet" that would be different from space exploration and significantly different from what's already been done.
