< p > Xinhua news agency in Las Vegas May 11 (reporter Guo Shuang) technology "madman" Elon Musk 2013 proposed a or subvert the human existing way of life technology concept -- the "super loop hyperloop transport system. According to musk announced the initial scheme, the system is composed of bidirectional pipe and transport module, moving speed of the transport module will reach 1120 kilometers. That is, from the United States to Losangeles, San Francisco, 600 km journey only takes more than and 30 minutes.

however, sounds very cool technology, in reality, it is generally not possible. The technology is known as the "fifth modes of transport", in addition to aircraft, trains, cars and ships, and its R & D construction faces many difficulties. Although in the heart of musk, ultra high-speed pipeline "iron" is "Concorde, electromagnetic gun and air ball table with", but the space exploration technology company and Tesla Motors, Inc. founder, five children's father was too busy. So, musk thrown open source design, attracted a group of US technology companies, research institutions and create customized gearing up successively engaged in this field, in order to "super loop technology becomes reality. < p > with the "super loop No. 1 company 11 in the western U.S. state of Nevada desert in the first successful implementation of" super loop "open beta, parties to the ultra high-speed pipeline" iron "technology competition also began to entering the white hot stage.

then, who can make about the future traffic musk "Crazy" dream into reality?

in all of the competitors, the performance of the most eye-catching than the headquarters in Losangeles, the two U.S. startups: "super loop 1" and "super loop transport technology" (HTT) company.

this week to stand on the ring is HTT. 8, the company announced the establishment of cooperation with the United States Livermore Laurence National Laboratory, has made the use of passive magnetic levitation technology qualifications. This is a kind of not provide the control of energy, rely on the system own magnetic energy support suspension technology. This technology is expected to significantly reduce the cost of the construction of the super loop. The company also announced that this year plans to start in the California Central Valley "Building 5 miles (8 km) long pipeline. < p > htt's organizational structure is relatively loose, most of its members for engineers and scientists volunteers, which also lack NASA, Boeing and other famous R & D institutions and enterprises of science and technology experts. The company for a week to work at least 10 hours of staff to pay wages, its chief executive Dirk Allborn concurrently < p < p > Southern California a start-ups "jump starting fund" chief executive officer. Up to now, the unit's R & D program has not yet entered the stage of public testing. < p > "super loop No. 1" the company's chief executive rob Lloyd, a former American Cisco company president, a co-founder of the company, chief technology officer Brogan Bambrogen is is good friend of musk. Once in space exploration technology company worked for 20 years. "Super loop 1" the company's early design and development is carried out in Bam Brogan's garage. "It is easy on the development of the spacecraft," Bam Brogan said to reporters. < p > for htt company recently announced that get the passive maglev technology, "super loop No. 1", a senior vice president of Josh and Giguere to reporter of Xinhua news agency, said: "we have done a lot of relevant test".

super loop 1, the company announced at a news conference 10, the company has completed a new round of financing of $80 million, has been supported by a number of global partners. Day, this has 150 employees, the company also launched a "super loop 1 global challenge", to encourage individuals, companies and official institutions, according to the design of the pipeline of "high speed rail proposed traffic of competitive and creative solutions.

in addition to the performance of the two companies eye-catching, there are a number of research and development institutions have expressed strong interest in this technology, even the beginning of the I also began to sit still. Under the command of the space exploration technology company recently funded the ultra high speed pipeline "high-speed rail" design competition from Massachusetts Institute, a research team won the game. Space exploration technology company also announced that it will build a super loop test track, and in the summer of this year to hold a contest to attract more innovative talents to join in the research and development of this technology.
