Elon Musk, hosts Tesla and SpaceX, published on Saturday, the 17th, on their profile on Twitter, new images from the company's first other tunnel, Boring company, which aims to create transportation in capsules that take cars at high speed. Musk's happy announcement is that the drilling machine arrived at the end of the route.

"The Boring company just got to the other side," he wrote on Twitter, along with the song "Losing It" by Australian DJ Fisher.

Created by the Boring Company in partnership with the Los Angeles Subway, the project was called Loop and initially will be a small cart with a capacity of up to 16 people leaving the company's headquarters to the suburbs of Los Angeles. If the test is successful, Musk has stated that he intends to bring the idea to other cities in the country.

Apart from its name, this project is different from Hyperloop, a more ambitious transportation plan that aims to reach half the speed of sound for travel between various cities or states.
