Even when presented with articles you refuse to accept them,

accept what? nothing in the articles contradict my points, and nothing there supports yours.  do you not see they are irrelevant?????

lol, nope, loss of vacuum will not be  a catastrophic failure,  it would just add drag and slow it down

The links I posted.

"Any Hyperloop accident will result in the instant death of everyone in the capsule and almost everyone in the entire Hyperloop with the explosive decompression."

"the trip would be uncomfortable and any accidents would be violently fatal; and the costs are much higher than Musk claims"

"Now sure, anybody in the capsule would die pretty much instantly in the event of a crash…but a single breach in the Hyperloop would probably kill everybody else in the Hyperloop because air would rush into the tube at about the speed of sound."

So you said any failure would just slow down the hyperloop and would be safe, I posted multiple links that show it would not be fine.  Maybe if you would start reading and stop your pathetic attempt at trolling you would of noticed those, of course you will probably just ignore all of this again since all you seem interested in is trolling, and being a horrible one at that.

The carriers are designed to be pressure-tight, so you can delete the issue from your scaremonger list.

First off it is not scaremongering, it is an actual and serious problem with the hyperloop despite how some people want to ignore it.

Secondly it doesnt matter if the carriers are pressure tight.  The hyperloop as Elon Musk has designed it is close to a near perfect vacuum, about 1/1000 of the atmospheric pressure which makes it insanely dangerous.  If there is a failure in the tunneling, which even building the thing as designed might not even be physically possible, it wont matter if the carriers are pressure tight when they would get hit with overpressure close to what an atomic bomb would produce that would travel down both ends of the hyperloop destroying it completely and any carriers in it.  Assuming by some miracle the carriers didnt get crushed like a tin can the rapid change in acceleration would kill everyone in the carrier anyway.  Even then just assume there is an air pocket in some length of the hyperloop, either from a leak or from a massive pump not working correctly or whatever reason you want.  Hitting still water at terminal velocity is like hitting a concrete wall, hitting an air pocket in the hyperloop while going at the 1000 km/h or higher would also be like running the carrier directly into a concrete wall.

The hyperloop idea deals with insanely high and dangerous pressures on a scale so large it might not even be physically possible to do but yet despite multiple sources people still want to bury their heads in the sand over the risk and difficulties.
