Hyperloop Pods to Carry People and Cargo in Future

We all know that the idea of hyperloop is the brainchild of none other than Elon Musk; the man behind SpaceX and Tesla. The multi-billion entrepreneur had a vision of a tube. A tube wherein magnetically levitated pods can be launched through the vacuum tubes at ultra-high speeds was the idea of Musk. These pods would carry people or even cargo for transportation purposes.

Musk’s open-source idea has garneredtremendous attention from across the globe. But it has not yet shown how this technology will perform when working at full scale. Well, as a positive step forward the transportation company has built a hyperloop test-run of 500 kms (kilometers) in Nevada, Las Vegas.
