Tesla Motors and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk announced an exciting preliminary plan to build a test track in Texas for the Hyperloop--only the most futuristic transportation system in the world. First introduced as "the fifth mode of transportation," Musk announced he is planning to build a 5-mile (8 kilometers) track to test prototype versions of the pods at speeds of up to 760 mph (1,220 km/h). The Hyperloop is meant to be solution for transport between congested cities that aren't far apart (no further than 900 miles apart to be exact). Hyperloop Transportation Technologies Inc. currently consists of 100 engineers all over the world who are putting all of their brain power and resources into making the futuristic transportation system a reality.
