System passenger traffic Hyperloop: around world in six hours
In today’s world there are many vehicles that simplify the process of moving people and goods for various purposes from one place to another. Cars, planes, trains and ships – all this suits most people, but not the General Director of SpaceX and Tesla Motors Elon Musk, who is rightly called one of the geniuses of our time, and “Titan” high-tech 2013 year. It was he who invented a new form of transport, which will cross the United States in just 45 minutes. For comparison, if we use the plane, then in order to overcome such a long distance would take about six hours. This hypothetical model of high-speed movement called Hyperloop.
Not so long ago we told you about Hyperloop in a recent interview with Elon Musk . Currently, Elon Musk from his Twitter account said that the project of super-fast passenger transport will be presented for 12 August.
Hyperloop system is a kind of a new branch of pneumatic tube. Musk Hyperloop describes himself as “a cross between” reylganom “and air hockey.” Hyperloop – a system of pipes, which is evacuated of air, and for which special capsule move people and cargo. The rate of movement of capsules is about 6500 km / h – for six hours, you can travel around the world. The length of such a futuristic capsule is about 5 m, weight – 183 kg. The payload capsule – it’s 4-6 people with luggage – about 410 kg.
To move the capsule uses the same principle as the maglev train. As mentioned above, the capsule is capable of a speed of 6500 km / h Notably, acceleration but will not exceed 1G. In other words, when using Hyperloop passengers will experience the same sensation overload as when traveling by own car.
Mr. Mack did not forget to mention the cost of Hyperloop. The construction of the system between two hypothetical items will cost ten times cheaper than the cost of high-speed railway and 4 times cheaper than the cost of the highway.
Just 45 minutes from New York to Los Angeles in capsules Hyperloop can carry 200,000 people in every direction. The cost of this trip will be about $ 100. To New York to get to Beijing will take about two hours.
