Don’t know what Hyperloop is?
Here are the basics.
Hyperloop first attracted widespread atttention when Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX and Tesla, first described his vision in the white paper entitled Hyperloop Alpha in 2013. Musk’s theory involves an autonomous system of magnetically levitating pods, carrying either passengers or cargo, travelling through nearly airless tubes at roughly the speed of sound.
How It Works
Due to the lack of surface friction and air resistance, the pods require very little energy input to achieve these amazing speeds and the system can potentially generate more power, mainly through the use of solar panels, than it requires to operate.
A trip from Los Angeles to San Francisco via Hyperloop will take 35 minutes and cost about the same as a bus ticket. Hyperloop has the potential to revolutionize mass transit by offering a faster, safer, cheaper and more environmentally friendly alternative to existing modes of transportation.
