Hyperloop Transportation Technologies Breaks Ground To Make Elon Musk’s Hyperloop A Reality

Plans to construct the beginnings of Elon Musk’s Hyperloop are now underway in Quay Valley, California. Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) announced plans for a 5-mile test track late last year and is about to break ground on an initial framework for what HTT CEO Dirk Ahlborn hopes will become the U.S. transportation infrastructure of the future. Musk first proposed the Hyperloop, a vacuum tube intended to speedily shoot passengers at 800 mph from city to city, in 2013. The idea was to create a mechanism of transportation that could get folks from San Francisco to Los Angeles in under 30 minutes. But Musk is a busy man, managing both Tesla and SpaceX, and left building plans up to others. www.techcrunch.com
