• The Company Elon Musk has built the first high-speed train vacuum
The vacuum train to become a reality.
Construction of a network of high-speed trains vacuum Hyperloop started. The development project by the company's well-known businessman, investor and inventor Elon Musk. A man who, in fact, suggested that four years ago this ambitious, truly a fantastic concept.
The fastest form of transport on the ground.
The concept of high-speed travel Hyperloop proposed once the head of Tesla and SpaceX Elon Musk has come a long way. For the first time people speak about it in 2013. Then, the mask is proposed to create in the United States and eventually worldwide network of high-speed trains of the vacuum, which could carry passengers and cargo.

The concept was coined by Elon Musk.
And now, just a few days, it became known that the first big test Hyperloop One passed quickly. Created train is called the XP-1. During the tests, it was able to successfully accelerate, pass a given part of the way and stop without any problems on that section of road. Is located in the tube train was overclocked to 310 km \ h. Tested were vacuum corridor itself, motors, control systems and many other important elements and structure of the future system.
will build in the United States.
Immediately afterwards, the head of Tesla, said that the company plans to build the first section of Hyperloop between New York and Washington. This tunnel will allow to make their way to the high-speed train in just 29 minutes. In the future, this result can be improved. It is noteworthy that for the construction and further development of the project Elon Musk wants to attract only subsidiaries Tesla and their subdivisions. The project according to the plan will be 100% implemented Ilona Corporation.
The first tests were successful.
Thus, today we can say with certainty that the first stone in the construction of Hyperloop network has been successfully laid. The project has attracted more and more attention of investors. Not so long ago the company Ilona even invest several businessmen from Russia. Musk, in turn, has created several new companies, but of which will be engaged in drilling of tunnels for the subsequent construction of the vacuum paths.
