Musk reasserted that a trip to Mars with his company would be likely be priced at a “couple hundred thousand dollars,” which is certainly an exorbitant amount of money for the average person but relatively low for space travel.
According to new plans filed with city officials, the Boring Company is building a car elevator inside the garage of a nondescript house near Los Angeles.
