CEO of Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, making ground travel speed at 1,200 km/h a reality.

Hyperloop is a conceptual high-speed transportation system put forward by Elon “house battery“ Musk, incorporating reduced-pressure tubes in which pressurized capsules ride on an air cushions. A project that will revolutionize how transportation is used for future travel to and from major cities, similar to the way the Concorde intended to change air travel. The tube could someday transport passengers from Los Angeles to San Francisco in 30 minutes at a top speed of 1,200 km/h; or from Vienna to the other end of Austria in 30 minutes as Futurezone writes.
