Here's how Hyperloop One's massive, high-speed transport system could work
Hyperloop One got a little closer to making its ambitious, high-speed transit system a reality last week.
The startup successfully tested its full-scale Hyperloop system on its DevLoop test track in Nevada on Thursday. The vehicle coasted above the track for 5.3 seconds using magnetic levitation and reached a top speed of 70 mph. Hyperloop One will attempt to reach 250 mph in subsequent testing.Hyperloop One is considering 11 possible routes for the first US-based transit system, but is also conducting feasibility studies Dubai and Finland .
Last year, Hyperloop One mapped out how the transit system could work in Dubai. Scroll down for a closer look:
