Elon Musk/SpaceX and hyperloop high-speed transport system
« on: June 16, 2015, 06:58:38 pm »
Since Elon Musk announced the hyperloop back in 2013, he has now just recently announced a competition to design and build the pod to the hyperloop. This is a really interesting project. Elon Musk and SpaceX has too much to work on, so that's why he announced a competition. Elon Musk does not have any contact with hyperloop companies.

Since we first unveiled the idea for a new high-speed ground transport system called the Hyperloop back in 2013, there has been a tremendous amount of interest in the concept. We are excited that a handful of private companies have chosen to pursue this effort.

Neither SpaceX nor Elon Musk is affiliated with any Hyperloop companies. While we are not developing a commercial Hyperloop ourselves, we are interested in helping to accelerate development of a functional Hyperloop prototype.

For this reason, SpaceX is announcing an open competition, geared towards university students and independent engineering teams, to design and build the best Hyperloop pod. To support this competition, SpaceX will construct a one-mile test track adjacent to our Hawthorne, California headquarters. Teams will be able to test their human-scale pods during a competition weekend at the track, currently targeted for June 2016. The knowledge gained here will continue to be open-sourced.

All submissions must be received no later than 5pm PDT on Sept. 15, 2015.
