Hyperloop an Invention that come from the world of Fantasy

Hyperloop is a proposed mode of passenger and/or freight transportation first used to describe an open-source vactrain design released by a joint team from Tesla and SpaceX. Drawing heavily from Robert Goddard’s vactrain, a hyperloop is a sealed tube or system of tubes through which a pod may travel free of air resistance or friction conveying people or objects at high speed while being very efficient.

Elon Musk’s version of the concept, first publicly mentioned in 2012, incorporates reduced-pressure tubes in which pressurized capsules ride on air bearings driven by linear induction motors and axial compressor.

The Hyperloop Alpha concept was first published in August 2013, proposing and examining a route running from the Los Angles region to the San Fransico Bay Area roughly following the Interstate corridor. The paper conceived of a hyperloop system that would propel passengers along the 350-mile (560 km) route at a speed of 760 mph (1,200 km/h), allowing for a travel time of 35 minutes, which is considerably faster than current rail or air travel times. Preliminary cost estimates for this LA–SF suggested route was included in the white paper—US$6 billion for a passenger-only version, and US$7.5 billion for a somewhat larger-diameter version transporting passengers and vehicles[1]—although transportation analysts had doubts that the system could be constructed on that budget; some analysts claimed that the Hyperloop would be several billion dollars overbudget, taking into consideration the construction, development, and operation costs. The Hyperloop concept has been explicitly “open-sourced” by Musk and SpaceX, and others have been encouraged to take the ideas and further develop them.

Here now I’m going to give you a brief introduction to Tesla & SpaceX.

Tesla, Inc. (formerly Tesla Motors), founded in 2003, is an American multinational corporation based in  Palo Alto California, that specializes in electric vehicles lithium ion battery storage energy and solar panel manufacturing (through the subsidiary company Solar city). As of June 2018, Tesla sells the Tesla  Model S, Model X, Model 3, Powerwall and Powerpack batteries, solar panel, solar roof tiles, and related products.

CEO Elon Musks said that he envisions Tesla as a technology company and independent automaker, aimed at eventually offering electric cars at prices affordable to the average consumer. The company was named for the electrical engineers and physicist Nikola Tesla by company founders Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning.

SpaceX is a first private aerospace manufacture company. Otherwise, space manufacture is totally the responsibility of the government of any country. Space Exploration Technologies Corp doing business as SpaceX is a private American aerospace manufacturer and space transportation services company headquartered in Hawthorne, California. It was founded in 2002 by entrepreneur Elon Musks with the goal of reducing space transportation costs and enabling the colonization of marks. SpaceX has since developed the Falcon launch vehicle family and the Dragon spacecraft family, which both currently deliver payloads into Earth Orbit.

SpaceX is revolutionizing terrestrial transportation through its Hyperloop services. The company currently provides these services to innovators and universities across the world interested in high-speed transportation technology and solutions. The Hyperloop system built by SpaceX at its headquarters in Hawthorne, California, is approximately one mile in length with a six-foot outer diameter.

Hyperloop Pod Competition:

A number of student and non-student teams were participating in a Hyperloop pod competition in 2015–16, and at least 22 of them built hardware to compete on a sponsored hyperloop test track in mid-2016.

In June 2015, SpaceX announced that they would sponsor a Hyperloop pod design competition, and would build a 1-mile-long (1.6 km) subscale test track near SpaceX’s headquarters in Hawthorne, California for the competitive event in 2016. SpaceX stated in their announcement, “Neither SpaceX nor Elon Musk is affiliated with any Hyperloop companies. While we are not developing a commercial Hyperloop ourselves, we are interested in helping to accelerate development of a functional Hyperloop prototype.”

More than 700 teams had submitted preliminary applications by July, and detailed competition rules were released in August. Intent to Compete submissions were due in September 2015 with more detailed tube and technical specification released by SpaceX in October. A preliminary design briefing was held in November 2015, where more than 120 student engineering teams were selected to submit Final Design Packages due by January 13, 2016.

Criticism and human factor consideration:

Some critics of Hyperloop focus on the experience—possibly unpleasant and frightening—of riding in a narrow, sealed, windowless capsule inside a sealed steel tunnel, that is subjected to significant   acceleration forces ; high noise levels due to air being compressed and ducted around the capsule at near-sonic speeds; and the vibration and jostling. Even if the tube is initially smooth, the ground may shift with seismic activity. At high speeds, even minor deviations from a straight path may add considerable buffeting. This is in addition to practical and logistical questions regarding how to best deal with safety issues such as equipment malfunction, accidents, and emergency evacuations.

Other maglev trains are already in use, which avoids much of the added costs of Hyperloop. The Shinkansen (bullet train) in Japan has demonstrated 603 km/h (375 mph) without using a vacuum tube. By using an extremely aerodynamic train design, rather than a vacuum tube, the Shinkansen avoids the added cost and time required to pressurize and depressurize the exit and entry points of a Hyperloop tube.

In the end, I  summarize my words by saying that Elson musks doing a very amazing business, he is eager to introduce new technologies to us. His for companies are doing awesome work in the field of  IT & electric engineers.So I think We do appericiate him instead of critcize his work.
