Hyperloop capsule were dispersed to 386 kilometres per hour
The Hyperloop company One has set a new speed record capsule for future Hyperloop transport system.
On the test area DevLoop length of about 500 meters, the capsule can be dispersed to 386 kilometres per hour, reports Wired.
The concept of the Hyperloop system was proposed in 2013, Elon Musk. It involves the creation of a transport pipe, which will move cargo or passenger capsules propelled by linear motors. The main difference of this system from ordinary trains is that the pipes will be supported by very low pressure, which is almost the capsules will not experience aerodynamic drag and can accelerate to 1200 km / h.
Originally Musk was not going to deal with the embodiment of the system in life, so the development of prototypes involved several third-party companies, including Hyperloop One. At the beginning of 2017, the company built a test pipe with a length of about 500 meters, called DevLoop, and has made a couple of tests test a Maglev capsule XP-1. Through the use of magnetic levitation, the capsule not only practically does not interact with the air in the pipe, but does not feel friction on the rails.
