A company in the United States is working on a project that could change public transportation. It would move people around in steel tubes. Passengers would be travelling at speeds of up to 1,200 kilometers per hour. The futuristic steel tube transportation system is called Hyperloop. Workers plan to test the system next year in a specially-built community called Quay Valley. The town will be powered entirely by energy from the sun. The Hyperloop transport system is the idea of businessman Elon Musk. Dirk Ahlborn is head of Hyperloop Transportation Technologies.
He says his company has taken Mr. Musk’s idea and is developing a system that will be safe, environmentally-friendly and fast. This means that a four-hour drive from Los Angeles, California to Las Vegas, Nevada, could someday take only 30 minutes by Hyperloop. It is 100 percent solar-powered. The system involves a series of capsules that float inside a long tube. These vehicles would not need to travel along a track. The system is designed to operate above or below ground. A low-pressure environment created inside the tube means the capsule does not meet much resistance. That means it can travel at a high speed, like an airplane. Dick Ahlborn and his company will use an eight-kilometer track in Quay Valley to find the best way to set up passenger traffic and repair capsules. A larger system will cost an estimated six to $10 billion to build.
