Hyperloop is a disruptive and completely revolutionary high-speed ground transportation system proposed by SpaceX and Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk. Incorporating capsules that can carry both passengers and cargo with reduced-pressured tubes, the pods will ride on an air cushion driven by linear induction motors and air compressors. As the capsules will be traveling in a low-pressure environment with little to no friction they will be able to reach transonic velocities, making a trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles a 30-minute commute. The system will also run almost entirely on solar power, making it the greenest method of transportation available. In large cities like New Delhi and Beijing where choking pollution is a major population problem, this technology will be a game changer.
