According to MarketWatch and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, the anticipated miracle is almost here. At first there will be a human aboard to make sure everything works correctly and safely throughout the 2,789.9 miles.

Further, it’s just a matter of time before the entire journey will be completely automatic. Along with the growing sophistication of driverless vehicles, there are plans to eventually build cross-country highways that are totally underground. And eventually, also under oceans. This is anticipating future capacity to use air pressure instead of fuel to move the underground passenger vehicles. Then, at some future date, riders will not need 40-some hours to cross the country.
