Entrepreneur Elon Musk, co-founder of Paypal is in talks to develop a super speed train. The Hyperloop that claims it can take you from Los Angeles to San Francisco in 30 minutes. Musk boasts that his train will be able to go 800 miles per hour. Although this innovation would completely modernize transportation some are worried about the speed of the train.
Musk insists that this is not a sci-fi pipe dream.He has described his vision as , “a cross between a Concord , a rail gun and an air hockey table.” The futuristic contraption would be a tube shaped capsule that would use pressure to move.He also has revealed that he will not be executing the plan himself. He is hopeful that other investors would take this off his hands.
The Hyperloop, if created would potentially revolutionize the way people travel between cities. Los Angeles and San Francisco are less than 1,000 miles apart. Therefore it would make sense to have a faster to way to connect the two. This would mean less traffic, less pollution and more jobs.Tell us what you think in the comments below or on:
