Successful test of Hyperloop

Successful test of Hyperloop

19-05-2016 07:00

Hyperloop could be the future of transportation. People test its prototype. They test it in the Nevada desert. The test is successful. It goes from 0 to 187 kilometres per hour in one second.

That is very fast. The real Hyperloop can be even faster. It can be as fast as the speed of sound. The journey in California from San Francisco to Los Angeles could take just 30 minutes.

Hyperloop will use special tubes. Air will slow down the things that move. There is almost no air in the tubes.

Difficult words: prototype (the first model), journey (a trip), tube (a long thing with space in it).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
