We’re building a high-speed transport pod for SpaceX’s Hyperloop Competition
The Hyperloop is a novel form of low-cost, fast transportation, consisting of levitating pods propelled through a vacuum tube at transonic speeds. The concept is projected to be able to deliver passengers from San Francisco to Los Angeles in 30 minutes for just $20. To further research and innovation at the university level, Hyperloop’s ideator Elon Musk started an international competition for student teams through SpaceX. UC Davis is one of the top 21 teams that will compete in July 2019.
