Elon Musk at it Again – Plans To Create 14,000 MPH Vacuum Train

What more could Paypal co-creator, Space-X, Tesla Motors and Solar City Chairmen Elon Musk do in this life? Well how about add a 14,000 MPH vacuum tube train to his resume? 

The Hyperloop is a conceptual high-speed transportation system envisioned by entrepreneur Elon Musk, incorporating reduced-pressure tubes in which pressurized capsules ride on a cushion of air that is driven by a combination of linear induction motors and air compressors.

The hyperloop could go from New York City, to Los Angeles in just over an hour and cost the passenger $100.00. Musk also believes that the hyperloop railway system would cost just 10 percent the price of the solar powered hyperloop.

    Holy shit, at least do your research… this isn’t even CLOSE to what this is.

    That’s a fanfade movie that has NOTHING to do with the current evacuated tube transport that ANYONE is building right now…

    et3. do your research before EVER writing another article. please. holy crap.

    kind of strange “news” as far as I know the hyperloop isn’t a vacuum but a partial vacuum tube system. with a topspeed of around 760 mph. Elon has even stated that a vacuum tube system (which has a much higher theoretical top speed is worth the investment cost compared to a aircraft and proposes for longer distances to build faster (electrical) airplanes. Further more 14000 mph is incradible fast even for a vacuum tube system and 19 times faster then the original proposed hyperloop system…. if this is an satirical news site then i don’t get the joke because there is even a wikipedia page that simply explains his plan….
