Hyperloop pod travels 192mph in maiden journey


The ultra-fast Hyperloop is one step closer to becoming a reality after its pod travelled 192 miles per hour in its maiden journey.

Hyperloop One said its prototype for the high-speed transport system, which could travel from London to Edinburgh in 50 minutes, reached the speed on a 500-metre-long test track in the Nevada desert.

The test marks the first time Hyperloop One has propelled one of its carriages along the tube, as well as the fastest journey for the technology.

The company completed its first trial in May, which involved a smaller trolley reaching a top speed of 70 miles per hour.
