The height of a futuristic
The speed transport system, driven by super magnets, has set a new speed record.
A prototype Hyperloop system that can one day ship paid customers to pods via airless pipes, reaching nearly 290 miles per hour on weekends.
This is the same length as covering the football field once a second.
Elon Musk, a 48-year-old billionaire entrepreneur who came up with the idea of a Hyperloop system, announced a record-breaking test on Sunday.
The Hyperloop works by squeezing the small pods into a huge plumbing system that sucks out the air to reduce friction.
The pods are suspended with magnets and launched through tunnels at high speeds.
According to Musk, each cabin can deliver up to 40 passengers at a speed of 760 miles per hour.
It takes only 45 minutes from London to Edinburgh.
The new super high speed rail speed record was created by a team at the University of TUM in Germany.
Their custom pods reached 288 miles per hour, exceeding the previous 284 miles.
The team is taking part in a speed race between Musk and his private rocket --
Construction company SpaceX.
This is the company\'s third Hyperloop Pod competition.
A total of 21 groups from around the world participated in a 4-thousand-foot test at the SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California, to reach the highest speed at the fastest speed.
\"You can say that pod is the result of four years of evolution,\" said Toni Jukic, TUM team manager . \".
\"Every year we learn something new and put it into practice.
\"Although Musk, who is also CEO of Tesla, put forward the idea of Hyperloop, he made it public.
Let other companies develop this technology.
Musk said in a white paper written in 2013 that the system was \"a cross between Concorde aircraft, railroad guns and air hockey tables \".
Several companies are scrambling to build a super-loop transportation system.
It is speculated that the world\'s first tunnel will open in Abu Dhabi in 2020, and Musk himself is building a test tunnel under Los Angeles.
The billionaire has come up with the idea of connecting Los Angeles to San Francisco using the super high-speed rail tunnel.
Across the pond, Sir Richard Branson has made plans to build a Hyperloop system in the UK with Virgin Hyperloop One.
Sir Richard claims that the technology can reduce the journey from London to Edinburgh by less than an hour, and the cost is not highSpeed 2.
No plans have yet been identified to start construction in the short term.
