A prototype of the Hyperloop module One dispersed till speed of over 300 km/h
Just a month ago we wrote about the fact that the Hyperloop One company was able to accelerate the test module to the speed of 112 km/h.
Now it became known that during the regular testing prototype passenger module clocked up 307 km/h! Of course, this is far from the estimated maximum speed you will be expected to develop serial trains Hyperloop, but it’s still faster than moving most of the modern trains.
Test as before was conducted in a 500-meter tube DevLoop. Naturally, this will be cut soon enough, but so far, the company believes that to build a longer test track makes no sense.
It also became known that the prototype of the passenger module has dimensions of 8.7 x 2.7 x 2.4 m. Separately, the company boasted an engine created for the test phase. Hyperloop One calls him one of the most effective engines created for all time.
