The Hyperloop test track in Ottobrunn near Munich is now complete. The transportation system, envisioning passenger capsules traveling at approximately 850 kilometers per hour through a near-vacuum tube, takes a crucial step forward in its research and development.
This fiasco is all the more regrettable since a Time investigation revealed that Elon Musk never really intended to build the Hyperloop. The real goal of the leader of Tesla would have been to cancel a TGV project in California, where many residents have bought one of his famous electric cars.
Romanian inventor Henri Coanda invented and tested the first vacuum tube transport test (what is now called the Hyperloop ); the first successful test with the vacuum tube was carried out in Bucharest, near CET SUD, in June 1971, using a pipe of 200 meters long and one meter diameter, which established the world record for the World's First Hyperloop , according to the Academy Of World Records.
A team of engineers at IIT Madras and a startup have come together to build India’s first cargo hyperloop system. A test tract for the full stack technology is being planned to be operational by June, 2023.
Delft-based Hardt Hyperloop, a hyperloop network technology platform, announced that it has bagged new funding from Posco International (Korea) and Urban Impact Ventures (the Netherlands), with participation from existing EU- and US-based investors.
Pod travels at 50km/h (31mph) through vacuum tube at Chinese facility to check critical components and prepare for future experiments. The project aims to develop superconducting maglev trains that can carry passengers at speeds of 1,000km/h or more.
The Phase-I work will take place on the 50-meter test track at IIT Madras. The subsequent work to achieve a 10-km track will be completed in Phase-II and -III involving a consortium of other industry partners from the automotive, construction and engineering sectors.
Like Hyperloop Belarus, which is focused on promoting hyperloop technology in the region of the Intermarium, Hyperloop Denmark arose as a new resource that aims to push hyperloop forward in…
SpaceX has reportedly demolished the Hyperloop test track near its offices in Hawthorne, California. In its place, the company has erected a parking lot, which seems like a fitting end for something Musk once hailed as the “fifth mode of transportation.” Now it’s just a place to park one of the other four.
Sir Richard Branson is preparing to sell Virgin’s stake in US Hyperloop start-up as interest in the technology envisioned by Twitter billionaire Elon Musk has waned.A source said Virgin will…
