We all know the company Tesla and it’s owner Elon Musk. However, we might not all know that he is planning another huge innovation in consumer transportation, and it’s way bigger than the all electric car. He is planning to build a train system that will get you from Los Angeles to San Francisco in 30 min, which is about a 400 mile trip that takes between 6 and 8 hours to drive. Musk plans to build this train by using magnets and a airless tube. The train will be put inside a tube with no air in it (a vacuum) and this will enable the train to not be affected by air resistance. Along the tube there will be a series of magnets that will provide lift and propel the train down the tube. It will be powered by solar panels that will sit on top of the tube. I’ve attached a video and an article to this post with more information about it. It is an extremely interesting concept and if it works will forever change the way we travel.
