News Picks : Proposed Hyperloop would provide fastest ground transportation ever

By: Physics Today
21 January 2016
BBC: First proposed by SpaceX CEO Elon Musk in 2013, the Hyperloop would comprise a network of low-pressure tubes through which pods filled with passengers and freight could be propelled at speeds of more than 1000 km/h. Because its propulsion system would be electric, the Hyperloop is being billed as a faster, cleaner, and safer way to transport people and goods. So far Hyperloop Technologies has received $37 million in funding, but it will need much more—upwards of $8 billion—to build its first test track from Los Angeles to San Francisco.
