What is Hyperloop?
Hyperloop is a futuristic form of transportation invented by Elon Musk. It involves putting a pod of passengers in a depressurized tube; the end product is both a fast and sustainable form of transportation. Typically, we build a prototype hyperloop pod every year and test it at SpaceX’s headquarters in Hawthorne, CA. Given the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we cannot be sure what the state of the annual competition is, but at a minimum, we want to do two things this year:
- Build a test track with a well-defined curve at one of our sponsor's facilities
- Design and build a new hyperloop pod that is able to handle said curve
