down a track, with the sled elevated slightly by magnetic levitation technology. It accelerated at 2 g-force before hitting a patch of sand 100 yards down the line. A full test was promised by the end of the year. The team is aiming to build a 3-mile track that will feature tubes elevated above ground by pylons. It was observed that humans in a hyperloop pod wouldn’t feel the acceleration as it would happen more gradually. If it will become real, this system could reduce the journey between Los Angeles and San Francisco to just 30 minutes. Once a hyperloop pod is underway it can sustain its speed with very low energy use producing no carbon emissions “We think we can move cargo by 2019 and passengers by 2021, if we can replicate the kind of support we’ve gotten here from the county and city of North Las Vegas,” said CEO Rob Lloyd.
