Hyperloop is a new transportation concept. The hyperloop was made popular by Elon Musk when he published his paper Hyperloop Alpha
, but the concept is heavily based on Robert Goddards vactrain and have existed for a long time. The basis of the hyperloop concept is to move a vehicle, often referred to as a 'pod', as fast and efficiently as possible along a track by minimizing drag and friction. This is achieved by using magnetic levitation to elevate the pod from the tracks and run the pod in a vacuum tube. Although many have estimated how fast the pod can travel under such conditions, no one really knows.
