Elon Musk is on a mission: to revolutionize long distance travel. And in order to fulfill this dream of his, he has come up with Hyperloop. But before that dream can become a reality there is a lot of work to be done. Hyperloop One – an LA startup that is one of the two companies that are working on this project – demonstrated their new propulsion system in the Nevada desert this week.
It was a test that lasted only two seconds but those two seconds were more than enough to show one thing: the new propulsion system works. As you can see in the video above, a 10 foot sled runs on a short track at an impressive speed. While the track is not long enough to test the new system to its limits, it is definitely long enough to show the potential that the new system has.
This propulsion system that was demonstrated today has been built from the ground up. It’s new, it’s here and it works. We will be able to hit top speeds of 350 miles per hour once we get a track that’s ling enough.” — Hyperloop One’s co-founder Shervin Pishevar
With the successful open air test of this new propulsion system, the futuristic, high speed travel that has been part of science fiction for decades seems to be just around the corner.
