Sir Richard Branson promises to build 'revolutionary' Hyperloop train service
12 October 2017, 06:38 | Edward Lowe
Richard Branson's Virgin Group just invested in Hyperloop One, the crazy superfast transport idea of Elon Musk
The details of his proposal might have been unconvincing to many experts - one transportation engineer noted that, among other things, Musk radically underestimated the cost of concrete viaducts, the unpleasantness of high-speed tight corners and the difficulty of safely stopping in an emergency - but the proposal spawned a number of companies eager to work on versions of the idea.
"Virgin Hyperloop One are leading the way in these efforts", he continued, noting that the company is "working on exciting projects in the Middle East, Europe, India, Canada, and the U.S.".
"Virgin has been known for investing in and creating innovative companies over the years, and I look forward to making history together as we bring Hyperloop to the world as Virgin Hyperloop One".

"The total 'DevLoop" tube length is 500 metres and the tube's diameter is 3.3 metres.
Richard Branson is jumping on the Hyperloop train, the transport concept which could reduce the time it takes to travel between London and Edinburgh to just 50 minutes. The company still needs to demonstrate that the system could transport people on tracks long enough to connect cities.
The 1.8 mile (3 km) full-scale and full speed enclosed prototype is taking shape in the desert in North Las Vegas in Nevada.
