As I was walking up the stairs, I met a man who wasn't there. He wasn't there again today, I wish I wish he'd go away.

Ya, it dosn't touch the rails at any point so to stop it they just reverse the magnetic current on the upcomming section of the track. Dosn't take long to stop I imaginie.

Yes I was referring to the ticket price, and you are right , its a remarkable step in dare I say it high velocity human transport , high speed traveling need not be more expensive , but if one remembers the cost of flying on the Concord I wonder how many will be willing to pay what ever the price to ride on this rocket?
