Big Hyperloop Capsule – level 1

11-10-2018 07:00

The ‘Hyperloop’ is a new type of transportation. It can go up to 1,220 kilometres per hour. People are working to make the Hyperloop a reality.

A company called Hyperloop Transportation Technologies makes a hyperloop capsule. It is full scale in size. They show it to people for the first time in Spain.

If a hyperloop is built between Madrid and Barcelona, you can make the trip in 20–25 minutes.

Difficult words: capsule (a special type of carriage), full scale (the actual size), size (how big something is).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
