More recent designs closely resemble high-speed trains. The Hyperloop One’s recent speed record of 308 kmh (192 mph) is an important step (however small) toward surpassing the first goal of the Hyperloop: to achieve quicker transit than other alternatives. But, while the hyperloop was initially designed to achieve 1,200 km/h (750 mph) with a chic […]

Heroes are not created equal. Most people recognize the name Sully Sullenberger, but far fewer can tell you what Alan Turing did during World War II. Fewer still could tell you that Turing was chemically castrated because he was gay, and committed suicide shortly thereafter. But thanks for bringing one of the most horrifying wars […]
An optical illusion popular in the 19th century could make trips on the Hyperloop appear to take place in a transparent tube. Regularly spaced, narrow windows wouldn’t offer much of a view individually, but if dozens of them pass by every second an effect would be created like that of a zoetrope, allowing passengers to […]
Mock-up of a futuristic transportation pod looks a bit like the cabin of an airliner, but with a crucial difference. The Virgin Hyperloop One mock-up has luxury touches but no windows.BMW Designworks. If you’ve ever wondered what the inside of a hyperloop capsule might look like, you’re in luck.
A 29-minute trip from D.C. to New York may seem too good to be true. And it very well may be. But that isn’t stopping Elon Musk from pushing forward with plans to build a Hyperloop along the eastern corridor.
Virgin Hyperloop One sets a speed record and lands $50m in financing.
Denver to Boulder in eight minutes? Colorado will get first test track for a Hyperloop-inspired transportation system
Colorado will be the site of a first-of-its-kind test track for a futuristic transportation system that could one day whisk passengers from downtown Denver to Boulder in eight minutes.
Elon Musk just casually announced on Twitter that he received “verbal government approval” for The Boring Company, his new tunnel boring startup, to build an underground Hyperloop system connecting New York city, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington DC.
Building a new 700mph transport system sounds pretty tricky, so one Hyperloop company has decided to kick things off by building the passenger pods first. Hyperloop is a proposed plan to transport people or cargo between cities at near-supersonic speed in vacuum-sealed pods. The technology is just a pipedream at the moment, with rival companies […]
South Korea makes a 1000 kilometer per hour high speed train that will go from Seoul to Busan in 30 minutes
South Korea is seeking to develop a train-like public transport concept that is almost as fast as the speed of sound up 1,000 km / h, the Korea Railroad Research Institute (KRRI) said Tuesday. The state-run institute will join forces with other research groups and Hanyang University to build the near-supersonic “train”, which would be able to […]
