New information coming on high-speed transportation system
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - We're expected to learn more Monday about a new high speed transportation system called Hyperloop.
It's the latest supersonic adventure from U.S. entrepreneur Elon Musk, the man behind Paypal, SpaceX and the electric car Tesla.
He claims the Hyperloop would make the trip from New York to Los Angeles in about a half an hour.
It seems to involve sending passengers through a tube in capsules.
A science expert breaks it down.
The smart money says it will look like a pneumatic tube, sort of enclosed tube and we just blast air through that. We're gonna be launched out of this rail gun, boom your off, 600 miles per hour, said science writer Brian Merchant.
Whatever Mr. Musk proposes, people are sure to sit up and take notice.
And you can bet there will be a whole lot of not in my back yard fights.
