    lol so right now bullet train is sttill 2x faster then the best tests

  2. James Smith on July 22, 2020 at 1:49 pm

    Pressurized tubes?? I’ll stop you right there. People may not get the sheer scale of destruction possible when going at 500 mph on a superconduction dependent propulsion system that suffers even the tiniest of leaks. But as a mechanical engineer, I know one thing: RESPECT THE THERMODYNAMICS INVOLVED IN PRESSURIZED GAS SYSTEMS. Now I ain’t no fortune teller, but I have a hunch this hyperloop will only be a novelty thing restricted to touristy areas and short routes.

    The maglev train is scheduled to begin commercial operations between Tokyo and Nagoya around 2030. It has taken nearly 70 years since Japanese national railway started the research. I think Hyperloop may also take almost same decades of Japanese maglev train to begin commercial operations.

  4. Daniel Purdy on July 22, 2020 at 1:59 pm

    More American innovation. American continues to lead the world in innovation.

  5. Niko Nikolic on July 22, 2020 at 1:59 pm

    An evacuated metal tube travelling at high speed between stations? Idiots leading idiots! And these are University students as well. If this is what they propose I feel for the future of this planet. Unbelievable! Still, so long as their are brainless idiots like Richard Branson out there looking for that extra bit of technological PR then we will always have these utterly brainless projects thrust upon us. Even Elon Musk surprises me to give his blessing on such an idiotic concept.

  6. Charlene Naude on July 22, 2020 at 2:01 pm

    When will they build one in south americas and mexico and africa ?🤔

  7. Cees Timmerman on July 22, 2020 at 2:03 pm

    5:00 – "Air pressure inside the tube is equivalent to flying at 200,000 ft." that’s 61 km, over 5 times the max cruising altitude of an Airbus A320. What happens if a pod window breaks?

  8. rubberkidney on July 22, 2020 at 2:04 pm

    you didnt go into how its totally infeasible and not even remotely a good idea.

  9. Shlok Shah on July 22, 2020 at 2:08 pm

    8:36 city names of Mumbai & Dehli have been interchanged.

  10. atfinn on July 22, 2020 at 2:09 pm

    Will never be built.

  11. Pksferdinand D on July 22, 2020 at 2:10 pm

    Could you use metric system as well? Not everyone understands the imperial system

  12. cat cait on July 22, 2020 at 2:11 pm

    High risk

  13. coolencyclopedia on July 22, 2020 at 2:11 pm

    at time stamp 8:39 minutes ….. Mumbai and Delhi are are positioned wrong….Delhi is marked where Mumbai is and Mumbai is marked where Delhi is.

  14. Alexander Michael on July 22, 2020 at 2:12 pm

    Fantasy world,that’s what.

  15. Jon Doe on July 22, 2020 at 2:14 pm

    The first Hyperloop was built in 1971 by Henry Coanda, the year that Musk was born.

    they have been using these underground in the U.S since the 50’s

  17. Dave Cullins on July 22, 2020 at 2:17 pm

    I’m just thinking: Can people even TAKE that kind of G-force that they will have to endure in something going that fast?

    Hyperloop explained:
    It’s a dumb idea that provides marginal benefits over Maglev by enclosing your Maglev in a super-expensive, incredibly hard to maintain, and energy intensive near-vacuum tube.
    At least it’s not, in its current manifestation, as dumb-as-rocks as Musk’s original conception, where fans were supposed to move air IN A NEAR-VACUUM to the bottom of the train to make it hover.

  20. Maslo Inch on July 22, 2020 at 2:18 pm

    Under the current conception this risks becoming an expensive toy for the sole benefit of rich people. It will provide no benefit to ordinary people who will be unable to afford to use it and will continue on with existing transport options. The technology is excellent but the focus should be on completely replacing road and rail based freight and not on commuter travel.

  21. Stephan Breuer on July 22, 2020 at 2:19 pm

    go to the restroom before boarding

  22. Thirsty on July 22, 2020 at 2:19 pm

    Thumbnail tells me everything, lol. Barrel, bullet and magnetic propulsion…what is so hard to understand? Is it that they won’t upgrade us because the average person wouldn’t be average with more time to think of questions and Google answers? School is a desk job yet desk jobs are unhealthy and mind numbing…man im glad i was a bad kid. I won a good, happy life through my rebellion. And taught myself everything INCLUDING THE STORY OF THE HARE VS THE TORTOISE. I rest my case.

    1little bullet is all it takes and you will depressurize the entire loop, killing everyone inside due to the "wall" of air that will enter the loop. Only way this is plausible is maybe underground, and then it’s completely uneconomical. Pointless when Maglev is already a thing

  24. elli003 on July 22, 2020 at 2:20 pm

    Dumb idea made for dreamers without a budget. Governor Newsom (D) California, can’t even get a high speed rail completed.

  25. Bob on July 22, 2020 at 2:20 pm

    Hyperloop will find success if and only if they can figure out how to ship goods via loop. Shipping is the most lucrative industry in the world. It’s my industry. If we can get in on shipping via tube and automated transfer, you can order something on Amazon and have it from California to your home in Cleveland within an hour or so. Madness.

  26. Sudipto Som on July 22, 2020 at 2:22 pm

    8:36 The cities Mumbai and Delhi switched places in the map. Great video otherwise

  27. DJABAKU YAYRA on July 22, 2020 at 2:22 pm

    What a Generation 😎

  28. Eduardo Castellon on July 22, 2020 at 2:23 pm

    I just enjoyed hearing the word tube pronounced “choob”.

    Да , да мы знаем.Из Америки в Украину скоро будет ,такая ходить.. За хорилкой

  31. joe caterman on July 22, 2020 at 2:27 pm

    can go a lot faster than that… upto 5000 mph.

  32. Jamie Powell on July 22, 2020 at 2:27 pm

    This will never work sorry. Not safe and going no where, in principle fine, in real life – nope!

  33. Fareha Noor on July 22, 2020 at 2:28 pm

    How much the fair will be again the rich will benefit from.

  34. Dirk Knight on July 22, 2020 at 2:30 pm

    When you read the comment section you can tell right away who is a can-do and a can’t-do person. 🙂

  35. S. Irfan Jafry on July 22, 2020 at 2:34 pm

    Pretty sure E. Musk wasn’t the first to conceive of trains traveling down an evacuated tube. https://www.businessinsider.com/history-hyperloop-pneumatic-tubes-as-transportation-2017-8

  36. 4R Mediaz on July 22, 2020 at 2:36 pm

    woww nice…

  37. Troy Dietz on July 22, 2020 at 2:36 pm

    "A history"
    Allow me to clarify, *"A Virgin Hyperloop Advertisement"

  39. Chinmay Mhaskar on July 22, 2020 at 2:37 pm

    Whoa, what about the air for people to breathe? DId anyone think of that?

  40. Incel Insurrection on July 22, 2020 at 2:38 pm

    I love this chan. No fluff intro, no asking for likes and sub in the beginning. Just quality content. 👍

  41. Balabala bless on July 22, 2020 at 2:40 pm

    More than 20 years ago Chinese gov say they will build the fast train such like this just use 15 mins or 45 mins people can from Newyork to Beijing.They reported in newspaper.

  42. Gopikrishna GK on July 22, 2020 at 2:40 pm

    8:37 places in India are located wrong in this video

  43. Pravat Shakya on July 22, 2020 at 2:41 pm

    I am 100% sure there will be a movie made on Elon

  44. lemard mays on July 22, 2020 at 2:43 pm


  45. Keshav on July 22, 2020 at 2:43 pm

    The Mumbai and Delhi labels showing the busiest air routes are interchanged!!!

  47. Alexander Michael on July 22, 2020 at 2:46 pm

    One mistake in manufacture,which is always a reality and what will we get? Death on a level folks do not consider when they dream like this.

  48. Manish Raj Bhagat on July 22, 2020 at 2:47 pm

    Imagine being stuck in between that vaccum tube and second one approaching…..

  49. Brunt Brunette on July 22, 2020 at 2:47 pm

    How many people can fit into one hyper loop train ?

  50. A1 B2 on July 22, 2020 at 2:47 pm

    So Jetsonts, Futurama and all that jaz… 😀
