Hyperloop the next step for faster transport

 How it would be if we are able to travel to any part of India within 30 mins to 2.5 hrs ,would not be amazing ,well how is it possible .. well the answer is very simple Hyper loop.

 Hyperloop is US-based company which has embarked on an ambitious project to revolutionise the way people moved from one city to another has set its eyes on Chennai
.The brainchild of Elon Musk, HyperLoop One proposes to propel people in travel pods at 1,200kmph through a tube propped up on concrete pillars. The pod or train is able to achieve the speed because it floats in a vacuum inside the tunnel.
What is the Hyperloop?
The Hyperloop is a conceptual high-speed transportation system originally put forward by Elon Musk, incorporating reduced-pressure tubes in which pressurized capsules ride on an air cushion driven by linear induction motors and air compressors.

How is the Hyperloop powered?
Hyperloop is a proposed method of travel that would transport people at 745mph (1,200km/h) between distant locations. It was unveiled by Elon Musk in 2013, who said it could take passengers the 380 miles (610km) from LA to San Francisco in 30 minutes - half the time it takes a plane.

What is Hyperloop technologies?
Hyperloop Technologies is a United States company formed to explore Elon Musk's Hyperloop concept. One of its competitors is the crowdsourced Hyperloop Transportation Technologies. The company is currently building a short (1.9 mi (3 km)) test track in the Nevada desert to test lightweight prototype Hyperloop pods.

How does it works?
Hyperloop is based on three scientific principles.
Magnetism: The moving shuttle would be magnetically suspended within minutues  the vacuum tube without touching any part of the tunnel while it is traveling. So no contact, no friction.
Vacuum: The Hyperloop transport tube would be airless to virtually eradicate any air resistance.
Inertia: The Hyperloop technology uses nearly linear channels so the turns would be less sharp or there would be no turns at all. This ensures continuity of momentum without sharp turning points which serve as intermittent speed breakers.
All of the above mentioned factors give Hyperloop technology a great advantage over other four modes of transports, including air travel.
