Travelling at a speed of 760 miles per hour could soon be a reality
Construction of world’s third Hyperloop Transportation Technologies test track began in Europe. This construction is first in Europe, which began near its R&D center in France. The track will be built in two phases. A 320-meter system which is expected to be completed this year, another kilometer long full-scale system is expected by next year. Hyperloop One is a start-up hoping to revolutionize transport systems. It is designed like rocket pods carrying people or cargo through tubes at speeds of 700 miles per hour (1,125 kilometers) or more. The other two test tracks are situated in deserts of Las Vegas and Hawthorne, California. The ambitious project by Tesla chief Elon Musk aims to develop passenger-ready hyperloop which is expected to be capable of sending capsules of people flying through an airless tube at a hypothetical speed of 760 Miles per hour.
