Elon Musk's Hyperloop Competition Set A New World Record

Imagine getting from Los Angeles to San Francisco in just about 30 minutes. That kind of high-speed travel is the end-game of SpaceX's Hyperloop, and teams around the world are working hard to come up with the right pod for the job.

Three such teams gathered at SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California, last Sunday to compete in the third SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition. From a starting group of 20 teams, these three qualified to launch on SpaceX’s Hyperloop track.

Hyperloop One first test (close-up & slow motion)

Hyperloop One, formerly known as Hyperloop Technologies, tested for the first time its novel transportation system prototype in Nevada, on 11 May 2016. The motorized sled will eventually reach 563 km/h, once the test track is completed, and will someday propel a pod through an actual hyperloop tube.

Hyperloop One's passenger test pod takes its first ride | Engadget Today

The maiden test voyage reached speeds of 192 mph.



Just weeks after Hyperloop One demonstrated a working, albeit slow, version of its levitating sled, the company has made another leap forward. This time around, the startup has successfully tested its XP-1 passenger pod, reaching speeds of up to 192 mph and levitating off the track as it accelerated.

XP-1 traveled for just over 300 meters before the brakes kicked in and it rolled to a gradual stop, hitting a top speed of 192 mph. That speed puts Hyperloop One's system a little bit ahead of Category 1 high-speed rail, which has a maximum running speed of 155mph, although it's not yet faster than Japan's bullet train.

Then again, Hyperloop One's plan is to push its pods at speeds closer to 750 mph, but that's clearly going to be tough to test in a tube that's just 500 meters long. But the milestones, slow and steady, are being met, and it's clearly a demonstration of the company's strength that it is developing its prototypes for real.

Hyperloop One Releases Animation of XP-1 Pod Traveling Through Tube | Inverse

Subscribe to Inverse!


This animation, released by Hyperloop One on August 2, in conjunction with the news that its prototype pod, named the XP-1, had reached speeds of 192 mph, imagines a full-scale tube connecting cities through which the hyperloop -- first dreamed up by Elon Musk and revealed in a 2013 white paper -- will travel. Hyperloop One, a Los Angeles-based start-up, appears to be the furthest ahead on making the technology, which relies on electrified motors and magnetic levitation to propel a pod through a depressurized tube, a reality. Musk imagined the pod could travel up to 700 mph.

“This is the beginning, and the dawn of a new era of transportation,” said Shervin Pishevar, Executive Chairman and Co-founder of Hyperloop One said in a statement released on August 2. “We’ve reached historic speeds of 310 km an hour, and we’re excited to finally show the world the XP-1 going into the Hyperloop One tube. When you hear the sound of the Hyperloop, you hear the sound of the future.”

Hyperloop Pod Competition | August 2017 Recap

Hyperloop debuts first public test of high-speed transport system

Could you imagine getting from New York to Washington, D.C., in only 30 minutes? The Hyperloop would transport passenger-filled pods through special tubes at 750 miles per hour. Lance Ulanoff, chief correspondent and editor at large of Mashable, was at the test Wednesday and has more on how Hyperloop performed.

Elon Musk's Hyperloop: Everything You Need To Know

Elon Musk is taking things to a new level with Hyperloop. If he’s successful, you’ll soon be able to take a train from NYC to DC in about 30min or from LA to SF in about 35min. To get updates like this in your email signup at

The hyper loop is a type of train designed with pods that travel through vacuum sealed tubes which combines a few existing technologies and dates back more than a century. 

The basic way it works is a segment of the train, or pod, is contained in a tube with practically no air and suspended using magnetic levitation. This combines an old idea called a VacTrain with another type of train which does exist called MagLev

MagLev trains do not make contact with the ground and use their magnets for both lift and propulsion. This reduces friction and allows the train to travel at extremely high speeds (by today’s standards anyway) The problem with MagLev trains have is that they still have air that causes friction and slows them down

This all reminds me of the pneumatic tubes people used to send short messages throughout buildings over 100 years ago. In fact, this idea of sending people through pneumatic tubes isn’t new. The first patent to transport goods in tubes was taken out in 1799 by the British mechanical engineer and inventor George Medhurst. In 1812, Medhurst wrote a book detailing his idea of transporting passengers and goods through air-tight tubes using air propulsion.

Even the first attempt to build an underground transit system in NYC was based on this technology and called the Beach Pneumatic Transit

So this idea isn’t new, it’s just that now Elon’s new company “The Boring Company” is making it economically feasible due to their advancements in tunneling as well as other improvements in the air propulsion. Elon Musk even recently tweeted out his Boring Company receiving approval to build a tunnel from NYC to DC.

This system would get people from city center to city center in about 29min he said. At roughly 226mi that means they would have to travel near 450mph on average, that’s fast. However, it’s not as fast as the initial design that the teams at SpaceX and Tesla published.

In their paper published in Aug of 2013, they proposed a route between SF and LA that would get passengers there in about 35 minutes. To achieve this, they would need an average speed of 600mph (970km/h) and a top speed of 760mph (12,000km/h)
Until Elon’s latest tweet, none of his companies were officially developing this technology but instead were open-sourcing the idea, that is sharing it publicly, so others could make it a reality.
SpaceX is helping develop this technology however by hosting competitions. 

In January 2017, SpaceX offered its Hyperloop transportation services to 27 teams from across the country and the world in the first Hyperloop Pod Competition at the SpaceX track. The competition’s goal is to accelerate the development of functional prototypes and encourage innovation by challenging teams to design and build the best high-speed pod. Teams put their pods through a litany of tests, which was made possible through our Hyperloop system. This competition was the first of its kind anywhere in the world.

Based on the high-quality submissions and overwhelming enthusiasm surrounding the first contest, SpaceX has moved forward with Hyperloop Pod Competition II, which will culminate in a second competition on August 25-27, 2017, at SpaceX’s Hyperloop track.

Several companies have popped up looking to take this design and make it a reality, a lucrative one at that. The most successful of which is Hyperloop One.

Hyperloop One recently made history with their full-scale system test run in Nevada. At this instant, they achieved controlled propulsion and levitation in their production scale vacuum environment. This was a short test, but an important one if this technology is ever to become a reality. The skate they built only traveled for about 5 seconds, yet it achieved the magnetic levitation in a pressurized tube, something never before done.

So what's next?

Well, if Elon gets his way the Boring company will start getting funds to build tunnels between major cities in the US and companies like Hyperloop One will provide the tech inside the tunnel.
