This week, Elon Musk’s tunnel-digging venture released a massive, 505-page report on its proposal to link Washington, DC and Baltimore via a high-speed transit system. It was a small but necessary step toward realizing Musk’s dream of an East Coast hyperloop, which he teased in a tweet almost two years ago.

The video in question is the Wednesday launch of Northrop Grumman's Antares rocket, carrying a Cygnus cargo freighter destined for the International Space Station, done in conjunction with NASA.
