Transportation is one of the biggest energy consumers and polluters of the world. With the Hyperloop it is possible to travel with the speed of an airplane, but with the conveniency of a train. And that for just a fraction of the energy-usage of conventional transportation systems. To boost this new transportation technology, Elon Musk organized the Hyperloop competition. The Delft Hyperloop team is a team with more than 30 students from the Delft University of Technology, competing in this Hyperloop competition. What solutions have they found for challenges that have never been conquered before? Make sure you're there!
