The Head of Tesla's Elon Musk has proposed the idea of a vacuum transport system a few years ago. Since there are many startups working on the implementation of ideas. But the Mask remained on the sidelines, so his company also take in developing your own system is the active part. Developments are testing directly on the premises SpaceX, where the capsule created by the Tesla engineers were able to set a record, speeding up to 355 kilometers per hour.
Elon Musk is confident that their vacuum pipe located at the site SpaceX, allows to achieve supersonic speed, so it was there that regularly test their capsules. At the end of August on the test track, SpaceX their capsules tested other team. The leader was the team from Germany, whose development could gain a speed of 324 kilometers per hour.
The head of SpaceX is also interested in creating a vacuum transport system, which is indirectly evidenced by other developments. The Boring Company, which also belongs to the Mask and engaged in the construction of tunnels is also considered as a possible stock for strip lines Hyperloop in the future.
