Hyperloop – Transporting People Via A Tube, Test Facility Unveiled.

RT News        Posted Thurs., June 01, 2017

Hyperloop test facility has been unveiled in the Netherlands, bringing Elon Musk’s vision of transporting pods of people through a tube at incredibly high speeds one step closer to fruition.

The test facility, a 30-meter-long (100ft), 3.2-meter-diameter (10.5ft) steel tube, is located at Delft Technical University. (pic below)

“In this facility we will test all systems that don’t require high speeds,” said Tim Houter, CEO of Hardt Global Mobility, which is working on the project with construction company BAM, as quoted by Reuters.

Musk first proposed the Hyperloop in 2013, envisioning a system with levitating pods powered by electricity and magnetics which travel through low-friction pipes.

The levitation system, propulsion system, and safety systems will all be tested at the Dutch facility, according to Houter.

If Musk’s vision is realized, pods of people will travel through Hyperloop tubes at speeds of roughly 700 miles per hour (1,126 km/h).

“It’s our goal to let it be available for the daily commuter,” Houter said, as quoted by AP.

Houter, who was part of a group of Delft Technical University students who won a Hyperloop contest organized by SpaceX and Tesla Motors co-founder Musk in January, called the concept a “sort of on-demand, high-speed transportation system for everyone.”

The system could also be convenient for those who wish to avoid the perils of air travel, the CEO of Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT), Dirk Ahlborn, told RT.

“If you think about connecting people, and connecting people at the speed of sound with a system that doesn’t require everything we hate so much about air travel, I think you’ll see that there’s a huge potential,” Ahlborn told RT in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Ahlborn said the Hyperloop is also able to avoid the high operational costs which currently keep rail lines from being profitable.

Meanwhile, Hardt Global Mobility has no plans of slowing down. In the future, the company hopes to build a longer high-speed test facility which will focus on lane switching.

After that, the start-up aims to begin construction of a Hyperloop route between Amsterdam and Paris by 2021.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
