Hyperloop Hardt

Paris-Amsterdam at 1000 km/h in Hyperloop. That's for 2021!

Start
Hyperloop is a hyperfuturistic train born in the fertile mind of Elon Musk, the father of Tesla and Space X. Capsules in which passengers are comfortably seated are projected at very high speed into a tube. Ecological and highly futuristic, this revolutionary new type of transport abolishes distances. One of the first installations could see the light of day in 2021 between Amsterdam and Paris. Projected at 1000 km/h you will reach the Dutch capital in less than thirty minutes! Today, it takes 1 hour by plane and 3 hours by train.
 
Uhe Dutch team from the Technical University of Delft (TU Delft) has won this year's SpaceX competition to develop this next-generation super-fast transport technology, and they are already setting up a large-scale test centre.

The Dutch team's idea will be realised by the technology startup Hardt Global Mobilityin partnership with TU Delft, the Dutch national railway NS and the construction company BAM. Building the 30-metre (98-foot) pipe is the first step.
 
In this facility, we will test all systems that do not require high speeds. "said to Reuters Hardt CEO Tim Houter." This is the case of the levitation system, but also of the propulsion system. All safety systems will be tested in this experimental facility at low speed but on a large scale. ".
The initial test cycle has already received funding of 675,000 $ US. Between now and 2019, slightly more funding should be raised to build a high-speed test line in order to achieve the goal of setting up a Hyperloop between Amsterdam and Paris by 2021.
 
 
If the Hyperloop Paris-Amsterdam line project is a dream come true, it is not the only one. Indeed this new means of transport is a godsend for the tourist industry as well as for business travel. The SNCF made no mistake when it took a stake in Hyperloop.

Projects are therefore multiplying in Slovakia, Russia, the United Kingdom, Canada, Los Angeles, Dubai, etc. France is not to be outdone, since a Corso-Sardinian project to link the two neighbouring islands is underway, as is Toulouse, which is home to a Hyperloop research centre on the transport of the future in the Pink City. Toulouse would then be 20 minutes from Montpellier when it takes 2h30 by car today to connect the two nerve centres of the region.
