A rapid cross-country rail system might be miles closer as Elon Musk’s Hyperloop idea nears fruition. The first mile, as it were, of the project has been taken on by Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, a crowdfunded company that has acquired Musk’s freely available ideas and is gearing up to launch a test track as soon as next year. The company has scoped out a five-mile stretch in Quay Valley, California to plant a small-scale version of the frictionless transportation system. As opposed to Musk’s forthcoming miniature test track in Texas (also in construction), HTT’s track will be designed for testing with human passengers. This unfortunately imposes necessary limitations on the train itself, namely a reduction in projected top speed from 760mph to 200mph. Head here to check out more details and be sure to leave thoughts on the Hyperloop below.
