The Hyperloop Is One Step Closer to Reality

A test sled accelerated to 100 mph in 1.1 seconds, creating 2Gs of force in a successful test of Hyperloop One technology. The trial Wednesday near Las Vegas marked the biggest step forward thus far for ground-based passenger travel near the speed of sound. CEO Rob Lloyd says the company will begin building a real system next year and have it ready for passenger travel in 2021.
