Hyperloop

Hyperloop

Concept for high-speed transportation

Hyperloop technology was theorized and created by Elon Musk and engineers at his companies SpaceX and Tesla Motors.

Hyperloop consists of a low pressure tube with capsules that are transported at both low and high speeds throughout the length of the tube. The capsules are supported on a cushion of air, featuring pressurized air and aerodynamic lift. The capsules are accelerated via a magnetic linear accelerator affixed at various stations on the low pressure tube with rotors contained in each capsule. Passengers may enter and exit Hyperloop at stations located either at the ends of the tube, or branches along the tube length.

Multiple companies have since been founded to commercialize the technology.
