Elon Musk’s Hyperloop is Actually Getting Built in 2016


WIRED.com: Hyperloop Construction Starts Next Year With the First Full-Scale Track

“The Hyperloop, designed in August 2013 by SpaceX and Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk, is a transportation network of above-ground tubes that would span hundreds of miles. Thanks to extremely low air pressure inside those tubes, capsules filled with people zip through them at near supersonic speeds.

The idea is to build a five-mile track in Quay Valley, a planned community that will be built from scratch on 7,500 acres of land around Interstate 5, midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles.”
