Elon Musk’s Boring Machine Just Completed Its First Tunnel Segment

IN BRIEF

Serial entrepreneur Elon Musk announced via Twitter that his Boring Company has just finished digging the first part of its planned Los Angeles tunnel network. It was made possible thanks to support from the local government of L.A.

ON THE MOVE

Despite all the buzz and excitement over Elon Musk’s new tunnel-digging venture, the Boring Company seemed stalled at SpaceX’s Hawthorne headquarters. Apart from experiments in said parking lot, the company wasn’t really doing much actual digging in Los Angeles — until today.

Taking to his favorite platform for announcements, Musk tweeted that “Godot” — the Samuel Beckett-inspired Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) weighing 109,000 kg (1,200 tons) and measuring some 122 meters (400 feet) long —has been on the move in L.A.
