Elon Musk’s idea for commercial rocket travel on Earth would be a logistical nightmare
Musk's plan has to do with Musk accessing billion of dollars in government subsidies in a bait and slowly switch maneuver. Musk is brilliant at rent seeking. His entire business model is based on it and will continue to be.
Whether the company is Tesla, or Hyperloop, or rocket transit, Musk only cares about getting his hands on as much government money as he can. The results of these companies always underwhelm, but the man is a genius at hyping the underwhelming output.
