First flight completed by Virgin Hyperloop with real passengers

Nov 9 2020 Share

On Sunday in Las Vegas, Virgin Hyperloop took the first ride on its test track, but it will be years until the public can actually take a high-speed ride on a hyperloop. 

A hyperloop is an unproven method of transport in which individuals ride at speeds as high as 600 mph in a car in a vacuum tube. Magnetic levitation is part of the Virgin system, much like that used in advanced high-speed rail projects in Japan and Germany.

Magnetic levitation raises a rail car over a track, as the magnets drive the train upward like poles. As the poles repel and drive the train forward, the magnets also propel the train, and the opposite poles attract and drag the train forward. Since the 1970s, magnetic levitation has been used on several train systems.
