The Hyperloop train from Ilona Mask became reality
Construction of the Hyperloop high-speed vacuum train network has begun. The project will be developed by the company of a famous businessman, investor and inventor Ilon Mask. A man who, in fact, proposed this ambitious, truly fantastic concept four years ago.
The concept of high-speed travel Hyperloop proposed by Ilona Mask, the head of Tesla and SpaceX companies, has come a long way. For the first time talked about it in 2013. Then, Musk proposed to create a network of high-speed vacuum trains in the USA, and in the future and around the world, which could carry out passenger and cargo transportation. Last year, the concept began to turn into reality. Began and the first tests.
And now, just the other day, it became known that the first big tests of Hyperloop One were held in a hurry. The created train is called XP-1. During the tests, he was able to successfully accelerate, go through a given section of the path and stop without any problems on the specified section of the road.The train in the pipe was able to accelerate to 310 km / h. The vacuum corridor itself, engines, control systems and many other important elements and structures of the future system were tested.
Immediately after this, the head of Tesla announced that the company plans to build the first Hyperloop between New York and Washington. This tunnel will allow you to travel by high speed train in just 29 minutes. In the future, this result may be improved. It is noteworthy that for the construction and further development of the project Ilon Mask wants to attract only Tesla subsidiaries and their divisions. The project according to the plan will be 100% implemented by Ilona Corporation.
Thus, today we can say with confidence that the first stone in the construction of the Hyperloop network was successfully laid.
