Tesla and SpaceX co-founder Elon Musk’s idea of a “Hyperloop” transportation system might eventually turn into a reality within a decade, according to a California startup. The Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) said that the futuristic transportation system will be used to connect several key cities in the United States.
After about a year of its Kickstarter campaign launch, HTT published a 76-page report containing documentation of its research on route selection, safety concerns, technical specs, construction costs and other potential obstacles when building the Hyperloop transportation system. Dirk Ahlborn, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of HTT, believes that technology aspects of the project is workable, but is concerned on how the people will be convinced to build the transportation system.
