- Hyperloop is also one the Elon Musk’s ideas to make our lives easy. And it’s very good news for Indian citizens,because virgin hyperloop is about to start project in India.
A Hyperloop is a proposed mode of passenger and freight transportation, first used to describe an open-source vactrain design released by a joint team from Tesla and SpaceX. Hyperloop is a sealed tube or system of tubes with low air pressure through which a pod may travel substantially free of air resistance or friction. The Hyperloop could convey people or objects at airline or hypersonic speeds while being very energy efficient. This would drastically reduce travel times versus trains as well as planes over distances of under approximately 1,500 kilometres.
Elon Musk first publicly mentioned the Hyperloop in 2012.The Hyperloop Alpha concept was first published in August 2013, proposing and examining a route running from the Los Angeles region to the San Francisco.
The hyperloop system would propel passengers along the 560 km route at a speed of 1,200 km/h, allowing for a travel time of 35 minutes, which is considerably faster than current rail or air travel times.Preliminary cost estimates for this Los Angeles– San Francisco suggested route were included in the white paper—US$6 billion for a passenger-only version, and US$7.5 billion for a somewhat larger version transporting passengers and vehicles.
The government of the Indian state of Maharashtra has approved Virgin Hyperloop One’s plans to develop a high-speed line between Mumbai and Pune, which could become the world’s first hyperloop.
