Dec 15, 2015

ITU Sci-X Team was invited to present its design concept of a “Pod” (capsule train) in the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition Design Weekend held by the SpaceX company, one of the most prominent companies in the world, after they successfully completed the first stage of the competition. The competition will take place in January 2016 at Texas A&M University (TAMU) in America.


What is Hyperloop?

The Hyperloop is a conceptual high-speed transportation system put forward in 2013 by entrepreneur Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX and a co-founder of Tesla Motors.
“SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition” is a competition launched on 15 June, 2015 encouraging 318 engineering teams of 216 universities from 16 countries to develop their own designs of pods (passenger capsules). SpaceX, which aims to materialize the Hyperloop concept, will provide technical support to the engineering teams.
