He also had a new girlfriend. I told my my girlfriend, I said, well, I'm leaving such and such time. Can you go up with me and she says, oh, no. I'm I'm going to the jalopy. Races was Margaret Friday night, a what? You know, it's like I felt really left alone and abandoned somehow I knew, I'm about to do the most important thing I've ever done in my life, and she's not going with me. Now how did I know it was? But of course it was, you know, Gordie drove to camp on his motorbike and met up with a good friend. He calls her. His sister, her name is Diane, Diane asked me, where are you going to sleep? I said, I don't know. She says, well, wanted to sleep in our horse trailers. So, you know, we scooped out the new. I mean, horse, horse poop, actually doesn't smell that bad Gordy says the writers woke up early the next morning at three or three thirty they had to feed and water, their horses, and get everything set for the five AM start Gordy stayed in bed for a while. Got up. And I got, you know, get ready to go. I had a lot of time because, you know, it doesn't take me as long to get ready for run as a horse. About ten minutes before the start. I went up to Ralph and Betty Deavere. They were sitting with a gas lantern, old kind of shoe, you know, and I said, well, I guess I'll be going. And they said, well, good luck Gordon. And I just disappeared into the darkness. It was like nobody knew happening. It was. One of my favorite words, auspicious. This is very inefficient. It was amazing soon the horses and their riders caught up Gordy when we hit the single track trail I had to go their speed. You know that was eight miles an hour. And that was way faster than I wanted to run well for miles. I got to the forty mile point. And I just said, you know, I I'm never gonna make this it was one hundred seven it was so hot. I couldn't focus so I got to the point where I said, what can I do? And this voice from inside me said, I can still take one more. Step Gordy told himself that is long as he could still take one more step. He would. But on the climb to devils thumb where the trail rises sixteen hundred feet in one point six miles Gordy decided to quit when he arrived at the top he found his good friend Diane, so she came up to me and she goes Gordie how you're feeling and I go I'm quitting, don't quit. Just yet, come on over here, under this tree, and talk with page and me. So I did. And she correctly diagnosed what was wrong with me. I had run out a sold. See because there weren't any aid stations. That's right, Gordian xlii had set out to run a hundred miles in a race without a single water. Stop that Thursday before the race. He'd bought ten bottles of Gatorade and using his motorbike had stashed them along the course it'd be plenty. I mean, ten court. I mean, how much could you need? I found out. You need a lot more that Diane massaged border. Lakes and gave him salt tablets in water. And I couldn't believe it. It's like half hour later, I felt fine. So Gordy kept running. He ran all the way to the finish line in Auburn by, then he decided to stop worrying about the girlfriend who left him feeling abandoned. When she'd gone to the jalopy races instead of traveling with him to the start. Instead, he was trying to impress a writer who to company him to the finish, did a die forward roll over the finish line. And they wrote it up in the paper that I'd done Handspring..

Now one astounding story is that the work was going. Slowly for the railroad company leaders, and they got the Chinese to dig a shaft from the top of the mountain down to the center point of where the tunnel was to go. So I always ask my audience as to how how does one build a tunnel in four directions time, and you do that by building the shaft down to middle and then digging out into a directions out toward the portals. So they were able to double the rate of progress with that work, but I can't imagine being stuck in the bowels of mountain hundred feet down from the surface and working in that dark dang area carving out through granted and lane explosives than gang carded out through that elevator to for safety.

"Climatic conditions. Snowfalls will create drifts up to forty feet during the wintertime and. Be be sorry danced that people couldn't travel through the passes. The the the most well known tragic example of illustrating this is the Donner party to try to get into Californian late. Eighteen four got trapped by early summer winter snow and Trump there for for a long period of time and ran out of food and resorted to cannibalism, but that where they got stuck. It was now called Donner pass. And that's exactly where the railroad line had to get through. And the railroad company in competition with the Union Pacific, which was coming westward from Omaha wanted to lay as much track as possible and many people at the time thought, the central Pacific leaders were a bit daft for thinking they could get a railroad through the Sierra Nevada, but they they did. And with the work of Chinese railroad workers, the difficult thing was to get through the dense conifer tree forest. Of the California. And then through the passes of the Sierra which required the construction digging out blasting of fifteen tunnels through granite. Let's tells more about that. Because it sounds like it's dangerous work today. Sounds like it would be even more dangerous century and a half ago. Well, one writer friend of mine who heard about this work called the construction of the railroad an artisanal project, and I thought that was making it quite pleasant sounding. But I think he meant that it was all hand done it was craft work. And that was absolutely true. There were no power Renault. Power tools as we know today. There was only chisels iron chisels sledgehammers shovels and carts horse-drawn carts and blasting powder black powder which the used for gun powder. Where's copen gone powder at the time? And that was the only tools they had to and of course. Assaults cut the trees. But this is this was all hand work. And that's why they needed such an enormous mountain. Mount mount of labor to fell the trees clear, the roadbed Fillon ravines built trestle 's complete cuts through rises, and then snake on the way up through the Sierra and into the some area.

From wondering, I'm David Brown. And this is business daily on this Tuesday, February twenty six imagine traveling the four hundred miles from LA to San Francisco in half an hour, this model of high speed point to point travel as imagined by Elon Musk is called a hyperloop. It's a tube through which pods of people and goods shoot. At speeds of up to six hundred seventy miles per hour on no wheels. The pods are magnetically levitated and push through. Tubes of low pressure air by electric propulsion. A hyperloop could be fully solar-powered and musk argues far safer and less expensive than high speed trains sound like science fiction. Well, think again this future is a lot closer than you think. Several companies are testing hyper loops right now among them virgin hyperloop one which built a sixteen hundred foot long eleven foot high tube in the Nevada desert to test the concept, it's run hundreds of trips through the loop sending. In goods not yet. People through it now in one trip and empty pod. Reached almost two hundred fifty miles an hour demonstrating that the highest speeds aren't quite yet off the drawing boards. Burgeon? Hyperloop one is raised two hundred ninety five million dollars, including at least seventy five million dollars from virgin owner, Richard Branson. Canadian rival transport is raised fifty million a third company hyperloop transportation technologies isn't far behind. It's hard to be certain when hyperloop will actually be proven safe for passengers. But virgin hyperloop is promising commercial service in twenty twenty one transport hasn't yet given us a launch date, but it's building a two mile test track in France this year and has an agreement to build a six mile long test track in Canada, hundreds of cities states and provinces around the world are already vying for the privilege of hosting a hyperloop of their own one is the state of Colorado, which signed a deal with virgin hyperloop one in two thousand seventeen the state imagine. A system that would run three hundred sixty miles from Pueblo in the south to Cheyenne, Wyoming in the north what about a hyperloop business in the hands of Elon Musk musk motivation appears to be simply get the magnetic levitation category off the ground. You might say in two thousand thirteen musk offered his hyper loop design is open source technology for anyone to build upon despite the natural appeal of rapid traveled. New technology will have to overcome innumerable obstacles before it can welcome its first human passengers issues range from physics, and engineering to infrastructure regulations insurance and cost and most of all perhaps earning public trust blessed. You think the new technology will simply speed the most common commutes will think again a Rockefeller University. Environmental scientist argues that even a hyperloop won't shrink the commute of the average person which he claims hasn't budged from half an hour since Roman times. Rather he argues, hyper loops will shrink distances between cities and tempests to live further away from work or to travel far but fast for health care and the arts in short a fully functioning hyperloop good change.

It's such a small cosmic body been about sixteen hundred feet across and is currently seventy six million miles away. Now think about the engineering feat that they have accomplished. I mean, we were talking about the fact that they send something to Mars and landed on Mars, that's pretty impressive in itself. But this thing is seventy six million miles away seventy six million miles away. That's twice the distance of Mars right from here. It's the size of maybe what three four football fields five football fields. The if that roughly that no, and they manage to get the thing to orbit this sucker. And eventually it's going to go down scoop up some rocks and then come back to earth with those asteroid rocks. I mean, that's remarkable engineering vessel. Good marksmanship try to hit that target. Yeah. Think about that's amazing that they were able to accomplish its first of all it's amazing. They're able to see an object that small that far away to even know it was there.

They sent the would they send up there Bronco. I actually think it was a Chevy Tahoe is the the OJ Bronco. Yes. The white one. That's where it is. All right. So I I mean, I think that's remarkable. I don't know what they're gonna find. I'm really interested in what these exploring things are supposed to find. I'm wondering if they find oil or if they find gold are something like that. You know, I saw this story about this the Mars Lander found this shiny rock. And they don't know what it is. And they're thinking is that gold is it pure silver. What could it possibly be? Yeah. You know, something that might be scarce on earth. Like gold might be plentiful on Mars, and you can't bring you can't mine it and bring it back because you know, you've probably collapse the entire monetary system. Even though we're not on the gold standard. I think it would. Still affected. So what do you do with it? Okay. Wow. There's gold up there. There's golden them nor hills. Well, okay.
