He may be the man behind PayPal, Tesla Motors and SpaceX, but Elon Musk has been garnering more attention lately for his proposed Hyperloop transit system. Although virtually no details had previously been announced, Musk has stated that it would serve as a much faster, more efficient alternative to traditional passenger rail transport – more specifically, it would allow passengers to travel the 350 miles (563 km) from Los Angeles to San Francisco in just 30 minutes. Well, this afternoon (as promised) he finally let everyone in on just what it would be, and how it would work. . . . Read Complete Report

“L.A. to N.Y. in Half an Hour?
10,000 – M.P.H. Tunnel Train Plan Developed

By: Times Science Writer – George Getz 

A Rand corporation physicist has devised a rapid transit system to get you from Los Angeles to NY in half an hour for a $50 fair. He said existing technology made such a system feasible and so does a cost analysis. The essence of the idea is to dig a tunnel more or less along the present routes of U.S. highways 66 and thirty. The tunnel would contain several large tubes for East West travel of trains that float on magnetic fields, moving at top speeds of 10,000 mph. Passengers would faced forwarded during acceleration, backward during deceleration. According to R. M. Salter Jr. head of the physical sciences department at Rand, the idea of high-speed train travel using electromagnetic suspension was first put forward in 1905 and actually patented in 1912. The trains he suggested now would be single cars rather than actual trains, and would be big enough to carry both passengers and freight, including large containers and automobiles. . . .

The very high speed transit (VHST) system (1972)

Description of a very high speed transit (VHST) system operating in its own rarefied atmosphere in evacuated tubes in underground tunnels. Most cases considered took less time to go coast-to-coast (e.g., 21 min) than it takes an aircraft to climb to an efficient operating altitude. VHST’s tubecraft ride on, and are driven by, electromagnetic (EM) waves. . . . read on Line or Download Download Free Electronic Document of the complete official report

Dulce, New Mexico, Project Gasbuggy and the mysterious Dulce Triangles

by Norio Hayakawa
January 10, 2012

Here is a fascinating report which was posted several years ago on the Internet by an anonymous researcher who only went by the name of Firefoot:


This researcher, Firefoot, apparently studied the earthquake epicenters in and around Dulce from January 23, 1966 to December 10, 1967. Apparently unusual “earthquakes” were occuring in these areas nearly a year before Project Gasbuggy took place on December 10, 1967!!

(December 10, 1967 was when the U.S. exploded a nuclear device a mile and a half underground, about 22 miles southwest of Dulce, New Mexico…..it was called Project Gasbuggy and was explained by the U.S. Government as an experiment that would help ease the flow of natural gas trapped under hard, tuffa rocks in the entire region……it was an explosion of 30 megaton bomb, which caused a 5.10 magnitude earthquake in the area, extending all the way to Farmington).

This anonymous researcher, Firefoot, covered all known earthquake information from a point that extends 50km in every direction around the coordinates 37.052N, 106.907W.

He states that for some reason, 95% of the earthquakes occured between 1966 and 1967.
He states that it is possible that there was underground construction occuring.
He then made this map using the USGS/NEIC data.

As you go to his above link, he points out that Red “tacks” show coordinates where MULTIPLE earthquakes occured. Blue “tacks” show places where there was one earthquake only.

He made black grid lines to connect lines of more than TWO earthquakes which happened to happen along a meridian.
He says that the chances of there being so many lines of more than two earthquakes is statistically nil!!

The green and red lines show locations between places where multiple earthquakes occurred where they just happen to measure into perfect triangles. (As stated, lines of these two triangles are marked with green and read.)
“Very strange to say the least!” he says.

He believes explosives and RAND Corp digging machines were used.

But once again, I would like for you to go to the link for more fascinating information that I would like to point out. Please study the link very carefully again and since you can zoom in to any location within this google map/satellite imagery, please do so anytime:

(try to keep it in the satellite imagery mode, as much as possible)

In his explanation on the left side, he mentions three items of interest:

These three items are Purple “tacks”:

He describes one as a “hangar in the forest“, which is the northwestern point of the equilateral triangle. The equilateral triangle is indicated with purple color. If you zoom in, yes, you can definitely see an isolated building which definitely could be a hangar. This location is slightly south southeast of Pagosa Springs, Colorado.

Next he describes a “door in the mountain“. This is the eastern point of the equilateral triangle. What he calls a “door in the mountain” (if you zoom in) appears to be an anomalous spot…a strange area near atop a snow-capped peak (the researcher calls this peak Navajo Peak, and is located about 8 miles northeast of the town of Chromo, Colorado. The anomalous spot (which superficially looks somewhat like a lake) certainly doesn’t fit in because the rest of the area is snow-covered.

(In late 2008 I was contacted by a Los Alamos scientist who first pointed this to me when he visited my home)

Lastly, the researcher, Firefoot, describes an “arrow at Dulce“. This location is at the southern point of the equilateral triangle. If you zoom in, you can clearly tell that it is a building located in the southern area of Dulce. Actually, it is the Dulce Elementary School, located right next to the Stone Lake Road.
If you zoom in, you can clearly see that the arrow is seen on the strangely-figured parking lot of the school. This is now known among some researchers as the Dulce Arrow.

(Again, in late 2008, the very same Los Alamos scientist who visited me pointed this out to me)

What is most interesting is that from the Arrow of the parking lot of Dulce Elementary School to the anomalous point on Navajo Peak in Colorado is exactly 18 miles.

And, from the anomalous area high atop the snow-capped Navajo Peak in Colorado to the “hangar” south of Pagosa Springs, is also exactly 18 miles.

And, from the “hangar” south of Pagosa Springs to the parking lot of Dulce Elementary School is also exactly 18 miles!!
