American entrepreneur Elon Musk, Space X and Tesla founder, had the idea for the Hyperloop in 2013. His aim was to develop a faster, more reliable, durable and safer means of transport that should be able to transport people and goods at a speed of 1,200 km/h along a pipe under low air pressure. That would make transportation more energy-efficient and more effective when compared to planes or trains, for instance.
Thirty members of the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands have developed a capsule to transport people and goods at high-speed through pipelines – the ‘Delft Hyperloop’. The Delft Hyperloop pod is safe, fast, reliable and efficient. It can reach speeds of over 1,200 km/h and can carry both passengers and freight. With a mass of only 149 kg, the pod is highly responsive.
It is considered the means of transport. Hyperloop will cover thousands of kilometers in a few minutes, thus changing the mode of transportation by land. as the systems used are batatos and could even be emission-free as renewable energies are developed.
The first tests have been a success with this we see a glimmer of hope for terrestrial transport that will change all the patterns so far created, hopefully we all get to see this breakthrough.
