Capsule Hyperloop dispersed to a record speed

Capsule for Hyperloop

The prototype was developed by a team from the technical University of Munich.

Prototype passenger capsules bullet train Hyperloop One broke up to 327 kilometres per hour. A video of the test posted amerikanski billionaire author Elon Musk on Twitter.

In January held a competition for the design of the train for the Hyperloop, which was attended by more than 600 students-engineers from 24 universities around the world, says Forbes.

The team competed in speed when running prototypes of the vehicle sredstva 1.25-kilometer-long pipe, built around the SpaceX factory in California.

The winner was the team WARR (Workgroup for Rocketry and Space Flight) of the technical University of Munich, whose train was moving at a speed of 327 miles per hour.

According to information on the University’s website, a capsule weighing 80 kilograms is equipped with an electric motor with a capacity of 50 kilowatts.

Earlier it was reported that the first section of pipe for Hyperloop built in Nevada in March. Its length is 500 metres and a diameter of 3.3 meters.

The first full-fledged test Hyperloop was held in may. Then the train has a top speed up to 113 kilometers per hour.

Musk in July reported receiving permission from U.S. authorities to build a tunnel between new York and Washington for the Hyperloop.

Hyperloop system built above ground pipes with low pressure, which will be the linear motors. The pipes will move the Shuttle with passengers and cargo. It is planned that the shuttles can reach speeds of up to 1,200 kilometers an hour.
