The Hyperloop has a few engineering, as well as cost/benefit, hurdles to overcome.

Then the testing would be far more rigorous than the Virgin Galactic fleet and the 737 Max combined.

Not in anybody's lifetime.

Your body doesn't feel speed. The hyperloop will be flat, unlike a rollercoaster.

Texas rail will classified as high rail. America's only real high speed rail. I was stationed in Okinawa and rode on the high speed Shinkansen trains in Japan. They are amazing.

If you want to take real high speed rail in America, it will be in Texas, this is privately funded and it's perfect geography. I am not sure California high speed rail is still on the table.

Speed doesn't make people sick. Your body has no way of knowing what speed you are going inside a vessel that is closed. The only way you know what speed you're going in an open vessel is due to wind.
