Musk will accelerate Hyperloop to supersonic

The creator of Tesla and SpaceX, Ilon Musk, is starting to test the vacuum tunnel for his next innovative project called Hyperloop. As conceived by the creators, this will be a fundamentally new type of high-speed transport that can move through vacuum surface pipelines with a fantastic speed of 480 to 1220 kilometers per hour. Such speeds are possible due to the achievement of an almost complete vacuum in the tunnel, more precisely, the forevacuum.

Hyperloop should be set in motion by means of electric traction, for which they intend to receive energy by means of solar panels. The American entrepreneur plans to sell excess electricity to consumers. Elon Musk claims that the new mode of transport he creates will not be subject to accidents and will not make passengers wait, because streamlined capsules from 25 to 30 meters in length will move incredibly fast, but with short intervals. The developers intend to create 2 types of high-speed train: passenger and freight.

The company Ilona Mask is working on an innovative project under a free license, i.e. All technical specifications of the project will be freely available to all comers. At the same time, several competing teams are working on similar high-speed transport systems. British Virgin Hyperloop One has already been able to disperse the cabin of a vacuum train to 387 kilometers per hour.

Despite the successes achieved, according to experts, there are still many technical problems ahead that will require the maximum energy and patience of the creators to resolve them.

    Too lazy to recall school physics and calculate the acceleration time from zero to at least 500 km / h and the time of corresponding braking. It is clear that not with acceleration, as in Formula 1. And the distance necessary for this.
    About where to put the next capsule, if the previous one, God forbid, is stuck, I don’t even ask.

      And you google, count, do not be lazy. wink
