South Korea plans to launch its own Hyperloop within four years

The Idea of a superfast vacuum train proposed by Elon Musk in 2012, and relished very much. Today on the implementation of this plan of life work together , including , and, as it turned out recently, South Korea. The Koreans plan to launch the first branch of the Hyperloop from the capital Seoul in the second largest city of Busan. The distance between the cities is slightly more than 320 kilometers, and it is planned to overcome in just 20 minutes.

The South Korean government was interested in the idea of the construction of the Hyperloop in his country in January of this year. It was then that the authorities turned to scientists from the University of Hanyang for help in translating the project into reality. Now it became known that Koreans will also come specialists of the company Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, which have already accumulated a valuable experience in implementation of similar projects in several countries. The first branch of the vacuum tunnel is planned to be commissioned by 2021.

We will Remind you that Hyperloop involves the movement of goods and passengers within special capsules for special tunnels, which had previously been pumped out the air. Due to the low resistance of the air the theoretical speed of movement of such vacuum trains can reach 1000 kilometers per hour or more. In fact, their rate will be slightly below the maximum. Elon Musk, who proposed the initial concept of the Hyperloop, he decided to implement it not to participate, suggesting the idea to several other companies. However, later it turned out that his company SpaceX will do with the project.
