The 'Heartland Hyperloop': Missouri route could be the first in America

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Missouri could be the first state in America to get a Hyperloop. Virgin Hyperloop One said it had identified a'viable route' running along the I-70 corridor, the major highway traversing Missouri, that would connect Kansas City, Columbia and St. Louis. Virgin Hyperloop One, which already has a working demo track in Nevada, claims it will have the first passenger-bearing loop built by the mid-2020s - and the'heartland hyperloop' is now a front runner in the race. The'heartland hyperloop' would run along the I-70 corridor, the major highway traversing Missouri, and would connect Kansas City, Columbia and St. Louis. A new study has confirmed the Earth's inner core is solid Paul Allen's huge Stratolaunch completes medium-speed taxi test The study found travel time between Kansas City and St. Louis could be as little as 28 minutes, compared to 3 ½ hours today.

HyperloopTT reckons it can get you from Sydney to Canberra in 22 minutes

ZDNet

Is Hyperloop the future of travel? Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HyperloopTT) has said it is confident its solution is a game-changer for the future of Australian transport, promising, for example, to send people from Sydney to Canberra in 22 minutes. Pitching his company's idea to the Australian House Infrastructure, Transport and Cities Committee on Thursday, HyperloopTT co-founder Bibop G. Gresta said his company's solution "promises to change our life". "Hyperloop presents an opportunity for Australia to invest in the future, to write a new chapter in its transportation history," Greste said. Appearing before the committee alongside Greste was Wesley Heron, who leads the company's efforts in Australia.


Missouri pitches innovation corridor in bid to woo Amazon's second HQ, hopes Hyperloop can sweeten the pot

The Japan Times

JEFFERSON CITY, MISSOURI – Missouri officials were submitting a bid Thursday for Amazon's second headquarters that would involve an innovation corridor between Kansas City and St. Louis rather than a single location in one of the state's major metropolitan areas.


This Hyperloop firm has yet to attempt a test run - but it's already working on the app

In a 2013 proposal, Tesla and SpaceX boss Elon Musk outlined a Hyperloop transport system that would cut the journey from Los Angeles to San Francisco to 35 minutes. Transport pods would carry passengers or vehicles through low-pressure tubes at speeds of up to 760mph, or 1,220kph, with Musk envisaging "air bearings" to keep the pods suspended at high speeds, and deployable wheels for low speeds. Private companies are now working on bringing the Hyperloop concept to market, and Musk started an ongoing Hyperloop design competition last year. But Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, one of two private companies working to bring the Hyperloop concept to reality, has also decided to allocate resources to developing consumer travel software, even though it has yet to execute a successful testrun of its Hyperloop system. Engineers from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands are taking tech entrepreneur Elon Musk's Hyperloop travel idea very seriously.
