Hyperloop One Have Completed A Full Systems Test

Bulgaria Successful Test for the System of Transportation'Hyperloop

The company, which wants passengers to one day traverse continents while magnetically levitated in a vacuum, was able to send a kart-like vehicle along a portion of its Nevada DevLoop test track for 5.6 seconds.

Hyperloop One conducted the first full-scale system test (via The Verge), achieving full vacuum conditions in its closed tube environment with a test pod that's the actual size of what it envisions for its production systems.

Elon Musk's vision for high-speed travel in giant steel tubes just got one step closer to reality.

Just last month it unveiled plans for a London to Edinburgh route that would reach its destination in just 50 minutes.

There's still a lot to work out before Hyperloop One can begin offering service in its inaugural planned projects, including a system connected Dubai and Abu Dhabi, which is expected to achieve speeds of 500 miles per hour.

And Hyperloop One does seem to be making some solid progress.

Reaching all 23 million underserved rural Americans would cost as much as $12 billion, Microsoft said. " Microsoft's white space device development has been a well-documented, unmitigated failure".

It's the moment we've all been waiting for: Hyperloop One has finally completed its first full systems test.

The first test of the Hyperloop was done in the Nevada desert, and Missouri is one of 35 finalists for the new high-tech transportation system called a Hyperloop.

And while that's not the lighting-fast speed that Hyperloop Ones says it's futurist transport system could go, the company says this test-conducted privately on May 12-is only Phase 1.

"In this historic moment, Hyperloop One tested all the system's components, including its highly efficient motor, vehicle suspension, magnetic levitation, electromagnetic braking, vacuum pumping system and more, proving the full system's components operate successfully as a single integrated unit in a vacuum", Hyperloop said. Hyperloop's first trial was successful in demonstrating that the same effect could be achieved using vacuum tubes.

The aerodynamic pod is 8.5 metres long, and constructed of structural aluminum and carbon fiber. The next phase of testing will showcase the Pod gliding along a longer track at faster speeds. The windowless pod is created to carry both passengers and cargo, according to Hyperloop One. "Now that we've tested our Hyperloop system, we know it works, and we're ready to deploy it to the rest of the world".
