Virgin Hyperloop one is about to become reality. High speed travel will be possible and it is faster than bullet train. If the project is successful, India will be the first country in the world to have a passenger Hyperloop System.



Hyperloop project is going to be a reality in India soon. Work is being done on the Hyperloop One project and through this the long distance can be covered in minutes. The Hyperloop system consists of a series of tubes and it is possible to travel fast without any friction or air blockage. It has pods to seat people. It has been tested for a long time and there are plans to bring it to India as well.

Hyperloop is a medium of transportation that makes fast travel possible. It has sealed tubes through which pods can be moved without any friction and air resistance. People can be seated in this pod. In 2012, Elon Musk brought such a concept.


Speaking of Virgin Hyperloop One, one of its test facilities is in a desert near Las Vegas where it is tested. During the test, the airless tube is moved at a speed of 370km / h. However, this is much lower than the Hyperloop.Theoretical Max speed which is 1126km / h. However, the company says that for this they need an additional 2,000 meters of additional track on which it can be tested.
