Is it possible to travel from Istanbul to Ankara in 20 minutes? Or, for example, 1,5 hours from Istanbul to Germany?
Tesla Motors and SpaceX founder, genius businessman Elon Musk is really a crazy person. With his hectic ideas, he expands the horizon of mankind and creates new visions. One of Elon Musk's crazy projects was 2013's Hyperloop project in May.
FAST TRAIN FROM AIRCRAFT
A sort of train (capsule) that would advance in a tunnel to be built underground or above, could go above a speed of 1100 km / h, perhaps exceeding the speed of sound and, for example, to deliver you from San Francisco to Los Angeles at 30 min. up to 616 km). Elon Musk's four stages of modern transportation are “ships,, az trains un, Hyper motor vehicles beş and beş airplanes“, after which Hyperloop defines it as the fifth stage. The project states.
Many people who read this news for the first time had thoughts such as "what a ridiculous project" or "not possible". But despite many difficulties and obstacles, Elon Musk is determined to realize his dream, perhaps even a transportation revolution. But it's not just him. After Elon Musk shared his idea with the world in 2013, two start-ups have already paid close attention to the issue and started to think about it. Hyperloop Technologies ve Hyperloop Transportation Technologies These two companies named after the Hyperloop system have been working on the Hyperloop system for a while.
SpaceX, Elon Musk's space engineer, has just announced a new announcement yesterday and announced that they will build a test line with an 1 shaft in Hawthorne, California, where their headquarters are located, and tests will be conducted for the Hyperloop project.
Again opened to Hyperloop http://www.spacex.com/hyperloop A competition announcement was made on the website. The contest encourages participants to design a capsule that will lead to this line. Up to 15 2015 15, 2015 2016 XNUMX final projects will be delivered until the end. In June XNUMX, the accepted project (s) will be realized and the first unmanned Hyperloop capsule will be on the test line.
You can watch the video below for the contest announcement. But in the meantime, you need to capture the fast-moving capsule in the 15-second video.
There are many challenges to make Hyperloop a reality. How it will be produced, how much will it cost, work on security needs to be very detailed, etc üzerine But here is someone who dreams, others lead him. Do I also wonder if someone or a firm interest from Turkey will participate in this contest? Say what?
