    The company building Elon Musk’s 740 mph train just filed for a building permit in California. The company
    claims that passengers could be traveling at close to the speed of sound within the next two years.
    The Hyperloop concept involves firing a train full of people through a low-pressure tube at speeds of up to 740 mph. It has been described by Musk as a mix between Concorde, a rail gun, and an air hockey table. It could take you from Los Angeles to San Francisco in under 30 minutes.

    The Hyperloop is about to be buil, but apparently not in California. This tube-based transportation system, in which pressurized passenger pods are accelerated through reduced-pressure tubes, which enables them to develop speeds as high as 760 miles per hour, may see its debut in Europe.
    Hyperloop Transportation Technologies announced that this company has reached an agreement with the Slovakian government. Their plan is to establish the Hyperloop transportation route from Vienna to Bratislava, Slovakia, and from Bratislava to Budapest, Hungary.
    It normally takes about eight hours to travel from Košice, Slovakia, to Vienna to Budapest. But it’s only 43 minutes with the Hyperloop.
