Announcement of Hyperloop One Global Challenge Semifinalists Causes Worldwide Excitement

Announcement of Hyperloop One Global Challenge Semifinalists Causes Worldwide Excitement :Hyperloop One is a United States company formed to explore Elon Musk’s Hyperloop concept.

The Hyperloop high speed transportation system uses electric propulsion to accelerate capsules through a tube in a low pressure environment. The autonomous capsules levitate slightly above the track and glide at very high speed over long distances. They are capable of reaching a top speed of 1,300 km/h.

My favorite article was written by Shubha Sharma and published in The Hindu: “Into the loop”. It tells the story of Mumbai University mechanical engineering graduate Aditi Bhide, selected for a Masters degree by the University of Washington and now part of a team of engineering students that have qualified for the semifinals.
