kingdragonfly: A tunnel is about buying property rights, getting government's permission, moving Earth, and building giant pipes, and passing all the safety regulations.
You should watch some of Elon's TED Talks on things like his tunnelling projects.
He explains where the big costs are and the logical way they are reducing them. He has some really interesting and original ideas which while ambitious, make perfect sense and don't require new technology to be invented. It's why investors love him.
