Hyperloop One business case: half-hour travel time between Helsinki and Stockholm

The first full-scale feasibility study of the technology published today by Hyperloop One (the Hyperloop startup that recently conducted that big Vegas demonstration), looks at connecting the cities of Stockholm and Helsinki via Hyperloop. Right now, it’s not particularly easy to get between the two capital cities, which are about 300 miles away from each other: People either must take a 3.5-hour flight (Update: Yes, of course, the flight itself is about an hour, the 3.5 includes time getting to/through the airports) or an overnight ferry. This would turn the journey into a 28-minute Hyperloop ride—and freight could travel the same way.
