TU Delft Unveils Hyper Loop design – Means of transport of the future




In 2013 revealed Elon Musk his plan for the Hyperloop. The idea was that it should be possible to carry passengers within half an hour from San Francisco to Los Angeles with a new transport. The distance of more than 500 km could be covered in 30 minutes by passengers by 1000 kilometers per hour can pass through a kind of vacuum tube. Due to the absence of air resistance in the tube, pods would be able to achieve these speeds, the thought was.

Musk himself wanted but the idea did not execute, but wanted his company SpaceX he its development provide a major boost. In June 2015 SpaceX therefore announced a contest: participants could enroll worldwide for the development of a prototype pod. The best Hyper Loop Pods compete in the competition in the middle of 2016 a test tube of 1.6 kilometers in Hawthorne, California.

A group of students from TU Delft is one of about 120 teams have registered for the competition. Friday the team made its final draft known. The team is determined to put this competition to his name and to lay the basis for a whole new kind of futuristic transport.
