Hyperloop

Elon Musk tweeted the link. I'll just post a few thoughts on it and attach the link to the detailed PDF.

I have checked out the hyperloop PDF. Interesting idea. I see some inspiration in there coming from Concordes.

But, let me just point out a few things they published on SpaseX site:

  • Safer
  • Faster
  • Lower cost
  • More convenient
  • Immune to weather
  • Sustainably self-powering
  • Resistant to Earthquakes
  • Not disruptive to those along the route

All are very interesting. There is one though, which stands out and that is the ability to self-power itself in a sustainable way. This is a groundbreaking idea in public transportation.


I want to try this as soon as possible.
