A new hyperloop-style vacuum-tube train can reach 621 mph and reduce emissions

Strange article…it implies that it is a Canadian project but says nothing of location, doesn’t name any cities….sounds like vapour-ware.

Good luck with that. We can’t even build regular trains let alone theoretical.

Sounds more like a Shelbyville idea to me.

Everyone knew it was vaporware given the fact it's a damn hyperloop

In theory it’s between Edmonton and Calgary. But it’s about as likely to happen as Alberta stopping oil production tomorrow.

I just drew a hyperloop on paper. Mine can go 1000 mph. And it has zero emissions. Suck on that

Lmao literally “here’s a render and some claims about the goals we dream to achieve”

Mine can go 1001mph and is carbon negative. Obama gave me a fist bump over the design.

Where can I invest?

If you replace the vacuum tube with transistors it will go faster.

It can move at the speeds of 621 mph (1,000 kph) and reach a top speed of 746 mph (1,200 kph), in a vacuum tube.[citation needed][unreliable source][things that don't exist can't move]

Thing that don’t exist can move at infinite speed. No mass no limits!

Kilos per hour

The boiling point of water changes in a vacuum where you can boil water at 25C the closer you get to 0 mbar. So if there was any damage to the train moving at 600mph in a vacuum, the passengers could boil to death at room temperature. Fuck yes.

Can you please just build more trains.

Right? Trains would be at least 1/10 the cost and we even already have a lot of the infrastructure already.

My city gets 2 trains a day. 2! And everyone acts like we'd be a good candidate for these moonshots
